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 have a passion for financial markets and have pursued this via multiple avenues. I am a regular contributor on Seeking Alpha and also 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 in combining my understanding of both accounting and finance.
Outside investing, I play 7-aside football as a right wingback, watch football (a Manchester United fan), dance boogie woogie and Lindy hop and spend time with loved ones.
These are some of the projects I am currently engaged in:
