James’ father was a financial analyst and taught him about investing during high school. He held a small portfolio for a while, but only started getting serious about investing when he started his first full time role after completing a law degree. He started building up his portfolio, and invested most of his earnings into the market.

He preaches fundamental analysis and believes that “as a do-it-yourself investor, fundamental analysis is the only logical way to analyse companies”.
