Hello. My name is Candi Carrera and I am a value investor for more than 20 years with 90% of my personal savings invested in stocks. I keep the remaining 10% as a permanent cash reserve to buy more stocks when markets get emotional & depressed.
My main attitude as value investor is to buy shares as if I would be buying the whole company, acting as a business owner and understanding the business I am investing into.
During bear markets, investors are depressed and become pessismistic. I take the opportunity during those depressed periods of buying great companies at low prices. As famous investor John Templeton said : "If you want to have a better performance than the crowd, you must do things differently from the crowd".
Through my courses, my personal goal is to help people reach their financial goals if not financial independence. These courses are my attempt to help my students with the development of a strong investing mindset to enable them in making better investment decisions.
Born in 1972, I have been in many Senior Management positions during my career. I am currently also serving as board director in 2 companies. On top of that I have a Master in Business Administration from University Nancy II and also a Certificate in Value Investing from University of Luxembourg. I have also been mentoring young entrepreneurs & university spinoffs since 2010.
Last but not least I try to be a good husband and father to my wife & 2 children.
