Isom Adiari is an investor fascinated with the stock market. However, like many others, he tried several systems that didn’t work and wasted funds on such trainings and trading systems as technical analysis with little to no value. Fascinated by the workings of the financial system and determined to be a successful investor, he acquired mainstream education covering accounting, finance and quant finance at an advanced level, as well as acquiring some of the most respected and sought-after credentials in finance and investment such as the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation.

However, the greatest impact on my personal investment comes from my encounter with the legendary investor, Warren Buffett few years back when I started reading his annual Letters to Shareholders and Partnership Letters as well as biographies about him. The more I read, the more I was drawn to him and appreciate why he has been so successful the way he is. I also started reading the works and studying other equally successful investors such as Benjamin Graham, Philip A. Fisher, Joel Greenblatt, etc. and came to appreciate why they are successful. Many years ago, I read an inspiration piece and the message I got was that, one of the shortest cut to success is to copy the methods and strategies of successful men and women in any field of endeavor that one desires to be successful in.

Isom has significant experience in banking covering key areas of risk management, credit structuring, marketing and banking operations. He was an instructor for over 4 years in a local university in Hong Kong. As a passionate teacher, he has been involved in teaching at different times in the course of his career and trains candidates for the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Program.
