My name is Jun Hao.
I was always intrigued by financial markets, banks and money from a young age. But it was not till I stumbled upon a copy of The Intelligent Investor that I obtained a logical and rational model that brought order to what I always regarded as a chaotic subject.
Born and raised in Singapore, I was privileged to receive a Western based education that included an emphasis on my Asian heritage. Learning both English and Chinese gave me a huge advantage, allowing me to draw from the best of both cultures. The investor friendly status of Singapore has also given me the chance to invest in a range of markets – ranging from the United States, the United Kingdom, Singapore and Hong Kong.
I read Medicine at Imperial College London for a year before deciding that my true passion lay elsewhere. With that, I decided to switch courses, eventually deciding upon reading law at the University College of London, with the belief that it would help develop an inquisitive mind based on logic and reason.
With close to three years of investing experience under my belt, I am continually learning from experienced investors such as Benjamin Graham, Seth Klarman and Warren Buffett among many others. Although I am a value investor at the core, I do not believe that Benjamin Graham would have endorsed a dogmatic approach to the subject. With that, I have constantly expanding my knowledge base, drawing from a wide range of disciplines such as history, philosophy, economics and law, refining the mental models that I have gathered with time.
