A year ago, I started Off-Piste Investing to solve my own problem. At the time, I couldn’t easily find the Asia-themed investing content that I wanted to read online, so I simply tried to create, or in most cases curate, it myself. I figured others might have had the same issue, but since it was a personal project, I did not have a specific audience in mind. For me, the joy was always in the writing.
As I reflect on over a year’s worth of posts, it is fair to say that the website has far surpassed my initial expectations for what it might become. Off-Piste Investing has served as a unique platform for me to connect with other like-minded investors in the region. I have met with many readers in person to discuss and exchange investment ideas. Often, however, our conversations have gone much broader than just investing, and I am grateful for the friendships that have evolved over time from the blog.
Now, for the next chapter and the realisation that all good things must, if not end, evolve. I recently took up a full-time analyst role at a value-oriented investment fund based in Asia. Given my responsibilities at work, there will be a few changes to the website going forward. Most importantly, from a reader’s perspective, I will no longer be able to write-up individual stock ideas or share my often muddling views on the market (some folks will no doubt be thankful for these changes).
I will continue to distribute the weekly reading series and share insights / portfolio changes from other professional investors (please do note that all my information is sourced from publicly available material). On occasion, I might also write about non-investing topics that are of interest to me.
I always enjoy connecting with readers, so please feel free to get in touch with me anytime via email at email@example.com. Any feedback or suggestions are also welcome. Thank you for your continued readership and support!
