In 2013, Andrew retired from a 20 year career as an equity analyst at various investment banks in Thailand, to set up his own company. 

His last senior corporate role was as a portfolio strategist and managing director of the International Business Department at Maybank Kim Eng Securities in (Thailand).

As the founder and current CEO of A. Stotz Investment Research (ASIR), his company provides institutional and high net worth investors with ready-to-invest stock portfolios that aim to beat the benchmark through superior stock selection.

ASIR also provides institutional investors and fund managers with financial services such as valuation, stock selection, and portfolio creation in Asian markets, based on his proprietary FVMR methodology. 

This unique methodology aims to not only favour one style such as value or growth, but instead considers the four elements of Fundamentals, Valuation, Momentum, and Risk (FVMR).

And what I really respect about Andrew is that his incredible personal and professional success has been achieved despite his extremely challenging childhood beginnings that have helped him to maintain his humility, genuine warm empathy and care for others – you’ll be really moved and inspired by his life story.   

These early years inspired Andrew’s multi-pronged financial education approach that helps you to create, grow, measure, and protect your wealth.
