I joined the Babson faculty in August 2015. With prior experience as an equity analyst and portfolio management, I typically teach investment-related courses. I also teach in-house CFA programs at Fidelity, Wellington, and T.Rowe Price as well as those offered through the Boston Security Analyst Society. Program and course descriptions are provided below.
Through my consulting practice, I provide investment and financial advisory services to high net worth individuals, endowments, and corporations.
Our book was an Amazon best seller and is a favorite among value investors. In 2016, we were pleased to have the book listed in Value Walk’s Top 5 Investing Books along with the Graham’s Intelligent Investor and Fisher’s Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits. Interest in the book has been favorably impacted by the release of the film The Big Short, which prominently features Michael Burry, the founder of Scion Capital and one of the few investors to deliver high returns during the financial crisis. Dr. Bury recommended Why Stocks Go Up and Down as one of the 4 fundamental investing texts on his investment blog, which was widely followed by institutional investors.
My office at Babson College is located at 223 Tomasso Hall, Wellesley, Massachusetts. A campus map and directions to my office can be found below.
