Sahm Adrangi has been making serious headway, ever since 2010, when he famously predicted and exposed several Chinese companies for their fraudulent practices; a bold move that proved correct, as those Chinese corporations would eventually become under scrutiny and enforcement measures from the Securities and Exchange Commission. The 32-year old is Founder and Chief Investment Officer of Kerrisdale Capital Management, a hedge fund investment company that bets for and against company stocks, managing over $500 million in investments. Kerrisdale, led by Sahm Adrangi, takes a rather unique approach, as the firm researches company stocks that are deemed as under-followed long and overhyped short, then publicly explains the data found on those companies, breaking down the common misconceptions and misunderstandings associated with making investments; this enables investors to have a better insight into their respective market sector. So far, Adrangi has been on the money in terms of accurately predicting which stocks will be successful and which ones are bound to fail, and more information click here.
Take for instance, the biotech sector, in which Sahm Adrangi with Nostradamus-like vision, was able to forsee the biotech catastrophe before anyone, as the cancer vaccine for Bavarian Nordic, would fall tremendously short, proving ineffective and no better than taking placebo pills. Also, biotech manufacturer Prothena $PRTA came under fire, as Kerrisdale’s data analysis of their drug NEOD001(an AL amyloidosis drug) was deemed worthless. The accuracy of Kerrisdale’s data research hasn’t gone unnoticed, as they publicly, and sometimes bluntly, publish these reportings on their websites, sector related third party platforms and social media sites, particularly Twitter, causing ousted companies’ stock to plummet.
Because of these accurate accounts of potential business investment prospects, Adrangi has been seen as an investment activist, someone who isn’t afraid to call out exaggerated claims or up and coming underdog investments, in spite of what current trends are predicting otherwise, and Twitter.com.
Before launching the Kerrisdale Capital firm in 2009 with less than $1 million, the Yale graduate started off as a financial manager and advisor on high yielding investments and loan debt financing, as well as bankruptcy and out-of-court structuring for banks and companies such as Deutsche Bank, Chanin Capital Partners and Longacre Management. Now with Kerrisdale managing over $500 million in assets, it goes without saying how amazing an accomplishment it is for a relatively small investment firm to achieve so much in under a decade. Not to mention, Adrangi’s impressive moves have been compared to a long time idol of his, Dan Loeb, another powerful hedge funder who’s career also blossomed at a young age. Nowadays, Adrangi’s fearless nature of unveiling whole truths and breakdowns of investment analysis can be seen all over, as he has often been praised in the New York Magazine, Vanity Fair, Wall Street Journal and many more publications. Sahm Adrangi has also spoken at numerous conferences such as the Value Investing Conference, the Distressed Debt Conference, the Activist Investor Conference and the Traders 4 A Cause Conference, and https://www.hvst.com/user/sahm-adrangi.

So it’s a breath of fresh air when someone comes along such as Sahm Adrangi who’s knowledgeable, credible and at such a young age, will deliver hardcore truths, regardless of how it may come across. Unapologetically giving investors a full landscape view of their potential investments, using a more modern-day strategy through various social media platforms, Sahm Adrangi is not only shattering the current mold, but also paving the way for the future for how investors and investment firms will communicate; with honesty at the forefront, enabling for more sound decisions to be made, and Sahm Adrangi’s lacrosse camp.
