Quantitative Value


Embedded: A Marine Corps Advisor Inside the Iraqi Army


Think about it:

You can learn about geeky quantitative finance and geopolitics in the same sitting 🙂

Joking aside, I love to shake hands with readers and address any questions/thoughts you might have on the markets and investing. I learn so much from interactions from readers and appreciate the opportunity to be in the discussion.
