Investment Community #3
Rob Oellermann, PM at Laurium Capital
How feeling helpless in the wake of 9/11 enabled him to strip away illusions of control
How market conditions change but the human psyche does not
How attacking an analyst is not the same as interrogating an investment thesis.
We also discussed:
How the green economy is attracting real capex, and is an investable phenomenon
How tough it is to manage money and manage an investment firm at the same time
How an ability to listen well is characteristic of excellent investment teams.
