Aman's passion for investing was crystallized when he got his first job working at the Toronto Stock Exchange in the time when the trading floor still existed. He was on the floor on that fateful afternoon when Bre-X traded from $10 to 50 cents within milliseconds. Working in that environment, he motivated himself to elevate his knowledge of investing beyond the Finance textbooks he read in university. Alas, he was disappointed to find a lack of credible and unbiased investment information available, so in the true spirit of an Outlier, he refined and practiced his known skills in programming and financial analysis to develop a database of Canadian investment research using a unique model (Economic Profit). Malcolm Gladwell would be proud.
He founded AKR Capital Research and began providing portfolio managers and individual investors with independent investment research. Over the years, he has been switching his focus away from institutional clients because frankly, they really don't need any help. They will make their money no matter what happens. The group that Aman has seen requiring the most assistance is the average retail investor, who after several stock market meltdowns are now empowering themselves to take control of their portfolios and investments. They are looking for someone to coach them to elevate their financial literacy so they can maneuver and synthesize the mountain of investment information to separate noise from value and leverage this information through analysis to make informed and successful investment decisions. They are not looking for PhD explanations. They are not looking to be talked down and shunned like second-class citizens by financial institutions. Aman has gained much more satisfaction helping these hard working people.
It is within this backdrop and after taking some time off to complete his MBA that he has molded AKR Capital Research into Sage Investors, which uniquely specializes in investment coaching and independent portfolio analysis services.
Sage Investors is based out of Toronto, Canada
