My name is Erick Mokaya, CFA. I am currently taking my first year of the PhD in Accounting/ second year of my Masters in Finance at the Stockholm School of Economics. I am a Kenyan living in Sweden.
I have a passion for financial markets and have pursued this via multiple avenues. I am a regular contributor on Seeking Alpha and also the Lead Author the Transcript, a niche weekly capital markets newsletter. I invest in US and Nordic equities and, on a small scale, in small businesses in Kenya. I am passionate about investing in people and in great businesses.
I enjoy writing as it helps make my thoughts clearer. I also love reading as I try to learn from mentors past and present. I am insatiably curious about many topics beginning with anything related to financial markets, accounting, football, faith and Africa. My edge and strength lie at the intersection of accounting and finance.
Outside investing, I play 7-aside football as a right wingback, watch football (ardent Manchester United fan), dance boogie woogie, Lindy hop and to any African beat and spend time with loved ones.
These are some of the projects I am currently engaged in:
