In Focus

Before becoming a writer/editor for The Motley Fool, Anand was an auditor, a financial monkey at a Fortune 500 company, employee No. 64 in a failed start-up, and a member of a $10-billion-deal team. He uses this real-world experience to vet potential investments beyond the raw numbers. He also believes that the patience to wait for an excellent entry price is just as important as identifying an excellent company.

Anand's specialty is the banking (and related financials) sector, so this is the primary focus of his real-money portfolio. You can read about his banking framework in this article: How I Analyze a Bank Stock.
