Muneer Ahmed joined our South African equity team as an analyst earlier this year. To get to know him a little bit better, we asked him a few questions.
1. What attracted you to a career in financial markets?
In high school I participated in a stock picking challenge. I was fascinated by the idea that you could own a share in some of the largest companies in the country. I later realised that there are people out there who actually do this as a career and I wanted in.
2. What do you enjoy most about your role?
I enjoy this role because there is always something to learn. Markets are always moving and changing. Even the most experienced portfolio managers – at least the good ones – will admit to learning something new about the markets every day. The market has a way of humbling those who disagree with this.
3. What about the Denker Capital team, philosophy or process have you enjoyed most so far?
Investing for the long term. The research process is thorough, which provides the team with a better perspective and picture of the business we are investing in, which is the basis for higher conviction decisions.
4. If you had not become an equity analyst, are there any other careers that have always interested you?
I love sports, so I would like to say a career in sport but unfortunately talent was greatly lacking in that area. If I hadn’t become an equity analyst, I probably would have had a long career in the corporate world.
5. What does your role at Denker Capital entail?
My role entails analysing stocks for potential investment opportunities so that we can create wealth for our investors.
6. On a personal level, what do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Outside of work, you can find me on the golf course. I love the space and fresh air and challenge of a great round of golf.
