Invest Smarter not Harder with Ted Bauman

August 9, 2018

Do you sometimes believe that an always positive growth is too good to be true? So does Ted Bauman, a savvy investor of international stocks and currencies. He believes in a whole market approach, meaning that putting all your eggs in one basket is never a good thing. He also takes the approach that a bull market, or a market steadily and heavily increasing profits around the boars, is sure to succumb to a pop of epic proportions.

What does Ted Bauman do exactly? Well, he provides detailed Youtube videos of market trend analysis to help even the novice buyer reach into the international trading business with understanding. He makes it possible for people without a hedge fund manager to look at the market in several countries and make logical decisions to overturn government oversight and bureaucracy. How can we know he is really worthy of trust with our investments? Ted did it himself by traveling and researching housing markets in over 75 different countries. During that time he wrote extensively about finance for the World Bank and United Nations. During the financial crisis in 2008, Ted Bauman moved from South Africa to the United States to help with efforts like Habitat for Humanity and other Housing projects in the United States.

If you are interested in Ted Bauman and his work, there are many social media outlets to educate yourself on financial investments through his insight. Not only does he have the youtube videos mentioned earlier, but his social media presence is active. He writes a free daily newsletter The Sovereign Investor Daily and is published in several notable journals such as the Journal of Microfinance, Small Enterprise Development, and Environment and Urbanization. His most noteworthy work comes from his book, Where to Stash Your Cash (Legally) which was co-authored by his father, U.S. Congressman Robert Bauman.

Having a true sense of the business environment is extremely important to any investment firm. Many firms will go out of their way to get the best researchers that are able to spot the trends that nobody else can. Kerrisdale Capital Management, LLC was lucky enough to have one of the most gifted researchers of the decade, Sahm Adrangi, fall right into their laps upon their founding.

Sahm Adrangi started his career in 2003, shortly after graduating Yale University with his BA in Economics. Interested in the business world and how companies create leverage, he became a credit analyst first at Duestche Bank and then at Chanin Partners. Ever in search of a more interesting career path, Sahm joined the multi-billion dollar portfolios of Longacre Fund Management as an analyst. There he learned exactly what it meant to be an investment banker. With a $300,000 loan from his parents, Sahm Adrangi created a new company called Kerrisdale Capital Management.

Kerrisdale started with a portfolio of just $1 million and has quickly grown to having over $150 million in managed funds. This growth was due, in large part, to the research and investment strategies put out by Adrangi on a daily basis. Much of this research has to do with finding those trends that nobody else has thought of, such as finding shorts that have been overhyped by other investors, or those longs that are not being purchased at the rate they should be. He will also use his research to challenge how the market is looking at a specific sector, or to change the understanding of certain business strategies that a large firm is taking. Adrangi has even used his research to spark investigations into certain companies that has uncovered fraud.

Now Sahm Adrangi has taken a new step in developing an expertise in telecommunications, biotechnologies, and mining. With this new knowledge and body of research, he is hoping that he can help to create a larger portfolio of managed funds for Kerrisdale and bring a larger bottom line to the companies that he advises. Sahm Adrangi is definitely a banker to watch in the future.
