Jason Fernando

Jason Fernando is a Canadian value investor based in Vancouver, BC. At the age of 15, Jason's interest in investing was ignited by the events of the 2008 financial crisis. Ironically, it was the poor investment decisions which contributed to this crisis which inspired Jason to investigate methods of investing which are both fiduciarily and ethically sound. This investigation led him to the tradition of value investing, as represented by figures such as Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett, and Prem Watsa. Since that time, he has been engaged in a rigorous process of self-education, combining theoretical studies and practical application through the management of his own portfolio.

Having long been an avid user of Investopedia.com, Jason is proud to contribute articles for the benefit of others who are pursuing their own education as investors. In addition to his work at Investopedia, Jason also publishes articles through his personal website, at www.vancouvervalueinvesting.net.
