Last month the Montaka team welcomed a new Research Analyst by the name of George Hadjia. George is an outstandingly gifted financial analyst with previous experience at Sydney-based equities shop, Private Portfolio Managers. George’s background is in global equities and he joins with a deep understanding of the principles of value investing. His formal education was completed at the University of Sydney from which George graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce with Distinction and a Bachelor of Laws.
Interestingly, we came across George through an industry contact in New York. He happened to meet George in the US and was immediately impressed. Upon hearing George’s Australian accent, my contact recommended we connect in Sydney. When I met George I was immediately impressed with his deep understanding of the principles of investing as well as his genuine passion for researching and analysing businesses and industries of all varieties. As is the case for all of us on the Montaka team, George’s research is more of a lifestyle choice than a job. We are all lifetime students of investing.
Most importantly for me, however, was George’s temperament. Never before had I come across such a gifted young analyst who was so grounded. George is an immediate fit with the broader Montaka team and has already contributed meaningfully to the Montaka research process. We are delighted to have George on board to help protect and grow the wealth of Montaka’s investors.
