Being the founder and chief investment officer of Kerrisdale Capital Management, Sahm Adrangi has proven to be one of the most experienced experts in economics and in the investment industry. He founded the company in 2009 after working for several others for a couple of years. Kerrisdale Capital Management has since grown from handling $1.5 million in management to a whopping $150 million.
Sahm Adrangi loves writing about stocks, and so, he has published numerous articles on shorts and longs principles in the stock market. However, most of his critics do not consider his progress positive because he is good at pointing out misconceptions and providing the right way forward. He does most of his publications through his Twitter account, personal website and other third-party websites.
Sahm Adrangi earned his first degree from Yale University. He got his first job at the Deutsche Bank, where he learned a lot on leveraging loan debts and building high-yield investment portfolios. His experience was later diversified when he joined Chanin Capital Partners. There, he was in charge of bankruptcy and restructuring situations out of the court. A couple of years later, he was hired by Longacre Management as an analyst. Longacre is a multi-billion-dollar hedge fund that specializes on credit financing.
His works have been published by major media houses, including the Wall Street Journal, the BusinessWeek, the New York Times and the Washington Post. Aside from that, he has also been featured as a speaker in several conferences, such as the Distressed Debt Investing Conference and the Activist Investor Conference.
Sahm Adrangi was first recognized when he exposed the works of two fraudulent firms in 2011 and 2010. He was able to pinpoint the wrongdoings of China Marine Food Group as well as those of China-Biotics. The information he provided assisted the Securities and Exchange Commission to take preliminary stern action on the two Chinese companies. Since then, he has played numerous activist roles in different industries. For instance, he exposed the misgivings of Globalstar’s proposal, which was intended to provide Terrestrial Low Power Service (TLPS). He has also featured Northern Dynasty Minerals in his articles regarding market valuation for the mining sector. via twitter
