Successful investing comes from taking the right risks, from investing in undervalued situations where values are depressed due to short term fears. We are constantly scouring the markets for opportunities and special situations where our research has uncovered compelling investment opportunities. As we continue our work we will keep an open mind about the changing forces at work in the credit markets. Like Marie Curie, we hope to profit from our long sustained effort to constantly improve our craft, building a stronger base of knowledge for a more profitable future.
Marie Curie and the Science of Radioactivity
Even as she reached the pinnacle of fame for her work, tragedy and money troubles continued to plague her. Her husband Pierre, with whom she collaborated, died young in a tragic accident. She never overcame the deep sorrow of his loss. Within months of winning her second Nobel Prize she would unwisely (but patriotically) invest the prize money into World War I French war bonds. These would lose effectively all of their value and keep her struggling financially for many years. During the war she and her daughter would create a system of mobile radiological services to help battlefield surgeons. After the war, her work ethic never flagged. She was always the first to arrive at her lab in the morning and the last to leave at night. In Marie Curie we see a brilliant example of the amazing achievements that are possible from curiosity, drive, and a passion to learn.
