Hi, I’m Warwick.

I’m an investor, commentator on financial markets, and creator of content that helps people invest their own capital. My background is that I’m a former hedge fund and Goldman Sachs’ research analyst who worked on the buy & sell-sides for more than a decade. Before investing professionally I was a strategy consultant at Bain & Company. I left Goldman to invest my own capital and explore several independent ventures – one of which has evolved into Cogent Alpha.

I’m from New Zealand and I’ve lived in many places since leaving those beautiful shores almost 20 years’ ago, including the US, Australia, the UK, France, Singapore, and now Hong Kong. On the education front, I have an MBA from INSEAD and degrees in Finance & Law from the University of Auckland.

I hope you enjoy using the ideas that we present with Cogent Alpha – and that using them helps them achieve your investing goals. 


We’re Sorry.

Unfortunately, we cannot allow you to subscribe to Cogent Alpha.

We publish the Cogent Alpha investment newsletter in accordance with the terms outlined by the Securities & Exchange Commission here.

The law in Hong Kong does not clearly allow investment newsletters such as ours, however, and because some members of the Cogent Alpha team live in Hong Kong we need to ensure we comply with a narrow interpretation of the law in the region. Therefore, unfortunately, we cannot allow Hong Kong residents to subscribe to this service.
