Seeking Alpha is an online financial investment publication that allows its editor to research and share some of his/her research and ideas on financial investments to watch out for. The publication has grown over the past few months attracting a number of readers including the now retired hedge fund investor, Sahm Adrangi. After reading a recent article titled, “An Ode To Those Who Wander,” Sahm Adrangi reached out to the editor, and the two were able to catch up and discuss the twelve years career life of Mr. Sahm Adrangi before he took a sabbatical.
According to the Seeking Alpha publication, Mr. Adrangi is described as a hard-working investor who earned most of the successes he enjoys in the market through networking and hustling his way. After graduating from Penn State, Adrangi was able to land a credit intern position at NYC’s Merrill Lynch office. Despite being admitted for one year, Sahm was able to spend three years, thanks to his dedication and hard work. At Merrill, Sahm worked at the trade credit and the bond desk, gaining valuable experience.
After Merrill, Mr. Sahm joined the then $3 billion Longacre hedge fund where he got to grow the company with his trade credit experience. Other than Longacre, Sahm has also worked with Paulson & Co’s credit team helping them make $6 billion on short mortgage bonds. Before leaving Wall Street investment, Sahm also worked with Bowery Investment Management, LLC. Although he had a successful career at Wall Street, the celebrated investor decided to call it quits citing the high paced New York City’s life as one of the reasons for his decision.
