He later set out to launch his own company Kerrisdale capital which as of now manages close to half a billion dollars. Starting the business with just a million dollars in 2009, Sahm has over the years acquired a reputation for himself in the financial world. He is hailed for his risky yet always successful investment strategies. He is known to put all his money in shorting a single trade and growing investment from the single stock by over 25 percent in a day.
The brave investor has made huge profits shorting and after that exposing fraudulent Chinese firms that have made their way into the U.S stock market through back doors. Most of them were later investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission and found to be fraud. Sahm’s passion for research and thorough investigation is what made him the finance guru he is today. Investment analyst calls Sahm a confrontational activist who is brave enough to expose any company cooking its accounting books to lure investors. Some of the incredible skills he has with detecting fraud may have been acquired while working at Chanin Capital Partners. Here, he worked in the bankruptcy restructuring group where he advised creditors on various legalities and strategies on bankruptcy.
Kerrisdale Capital focuses its investment approach to long-term ventures and other special event driven stocks. Investors in this company have every reason to smile as SahmAdrangi has maintained an average of 25 per cent annual returns in the last half a decade or so. Recently an unnamed insider of the company told a news company that Kerrisdale will soon be short selling stocks of a major 10 billion dollar company. The targeted firm will be made public soon when Sahm will explain what it is he has seen wrong with the target. SahmAdrangi is an example of the results that hard work and dedication to a career can offer what made him the finance guru. The 33-year-old is an admiration to many.
