Hi all – welcome to Raper Capital and thank you for reading. My name is Jeremy Raper (hence the unfortunately-titled name of this blog), and I run a small long/short equity portfolio from Singapore. I grew up in Australia, went to college in the US, and have since lived in Japan as well, working both at buy-side and sell-side firms for 6-7 years before striking out on my own over the past year or so.
Since starting to actively manage my own money full-time, I have also developed an interest in financial writing and sharing my thoughts on companies on the internet – both to force me to cogently and coherently outline my investment views as well as to solicit feedback from other investors. So, for more formal investment theses/company analysis, please follow me on Seeking Alpha at the following link: http://seekingalpha.com/author/jeremy-raper
The purpose of this blog is slightly different: I am starting it at the urging of some friend and former colleagues, who I guess are interested in reading my views on a wide miscellanea of finance-related topics. As such, posts will be sporadic and potentially rambling, but hopefully of some interest to those who follow financial markets.
Feedback – positive or negative, just not personal – is always welcome, so feel free to comment away and suggest this to interested friends 🙂
Thanks for reading!
