Sahm Adrangi is a well-known investor who has had an excellent career in Wallstreet. Other than his Wallstreet career, Sahm Adrangi is also the founder of Kerrisdale Capital Management. At this firm, he is the Chief Investment Officer who is tasked with the duty if overseeing and approving all investment options for this company. His ingenuity and passion can be seen in the growth of Kerrisdale. As of 2017, the firm had significantly grown, and they now manage funds in hundreds of millions of dollars.
Unlike other investors on wall street, what earned Sahm recognition was the selling of his research materials that included various thesis reports and shorts evaluation. He took it upon himself to sensitize the traders in shorts that were easily misunderstood in the markets. This prompted him to make his research and evaluation on such shorts public as he felt that they were exaggerated and at times overhyped.
Kerrisdale capital management has been holding several talks with different investors and stakeholders which allows the discussion of popular misconceptions and myths surrounding various companies and business prospects. Other than having these conversations behind closed doors, Kerrisdale has gone farther to provide these details on their company’s website and Twitter feed with the hope that the information gets out there to every interested party.
Sahm is an alumnus of the Penn State University located in Pennsylvania. Starting from humble beginnings, Sahm Adrangi had to work his way up to institutions such as Merrill Lynch where he got the opportunity to trade in various stocks and bond. Sahm later moved on from this firm and joined Longacre Institution. It is at Longacre that his skills at trading in shares and even working with various hedge funds significantly improved as he gained the necessary expertise of managing collected revenue.
Due to the changing environment at wall street, Sahm pulled a wild card that nobody expected when he announced that he was quitting wall street. True to his words, in 2015, Sahm exited wall street trading due to personal reasons. After leading a long successful career, Sahm now wanted to have a relaxed life far from wall street so that he could spend time with family while pursuing other endeavors.
