What’s an investor’s edge?

By Nithin Sasikumar in BFO #371, 16 Sep, 21

When it comes to investing, every fund manager seeks out an edge. 

  1. It could be by trying to have a tete-a-tete with a company’s top official to glean some private information
  2. Maybe it’s by parsing financial statements with a fine comb to figure out if any accounting jugglery is taking place that could bring down the company
  3. Or it could be through superior research and diving deep into a select few companies so that you know everything about—things like succession planning

But it’s a lot of hard work.
