I've loved investing for as long as I can remember. In fact, my mum taught me how to dabble in the stock market when I was 15! Since then I've been hooked. But I was not necessarily doing it properly. Truth be told, I was gambling more than anything.
Thankfully, I met many mentors who played a significant role in my life and taught me a lot of what I know today. For them, I am eternally grateful.
Today, I primarily invest in stocks and real estate. The common thread is finding and/or creating value. I look for resilient investments that will generate steadily growing cash flows that can be sustainably reinvested at a great return on investment (ie compounders), and then just be patient.
I also own a few operating, fully managed businesses. The idea is taken from Warren Buffett / Charlie Munger where they talk about the virtuous relationship of becoming better investors and better businessman.
