I met Kim in an event where we were both invited speakers. We have a commonality – we are on the side of retail investors, helping them to make better investment decisions.

You are in a speed networking event and you have twenty seconds to introduce yourself. What would you say?
Hi, I’m Kim. I live in Singapore, and I recently launched an independent investment research firm there.
I’ve worked in finance, as a stock analyst, hedge fund manager, capital markets consultant, and commentator, for close to 25 years, in half a dozen countries, and I’ve spent most of my time in emerging and frontier markets in the former Soviet Union and Asia.
