Kerrisdale Capital Management’s current Chief Investment Officer, Sahm Adrangi, is a man with a well-decorated career. According to a recent online publication “seekingalpha” the retired Wall Street investor caught up with the editor after a heartfelt piece titled “An Ode To Those Who Wander.” After a lengthy chat, the editor decided to come up with a detailed career life of Mr. Sahm.
For starters, Sahm is Penn State graduate who through sheer determination and hard work has earned for himself most of the success he enjoys in the industry. Mr. Sahm started his career as an intern in New York City’s Merrill Lynch’s credit desk. Even after completing his one-year internship program, his hard work and resourcefulness enabled him to get an extension of three years at the institution’s bond desk. After living Merrill Lynch, Mr. Sahm catapulted his career by taking the credit trading position at Longacre, a $3 billion hedge fund. It is after leaving Longacre that Sahm ventured on his own to start Kerrisdale Capital Management.
Despite achieving huge success in Wall Street Sahm decided to call it quits. Some of the major reasons the investor cited behind his decision included the ever-increasing cost of living in NYC, the engaging and time-consuming nature of Wall Street job and finally his perception of the fact that Wall Street investment had changed. Even after living the trade, Mr. Sahm still enjoys trading and currently attributes his current incomes from selected securities.
