David made his first “investment” in Grade 6 of elementary school when he bought a Scyther Pokemon card for $0.25, which he promptly sold for $0.50 the following day. Since the beginning of his career, he’s been trying (unsuccessfully) to replicate that rate of return.

David was born in China and educated in North America. This rich background leads him to be motivated every day to delve into the dynamic economies of Emerging Asia. He looks forward to researching and analyzing prospective investments that are in line with Burgundy’s quality-value investment philosophy.
