Instructor

Andrew Stotz, Ph.D., CFA

CEO, A. Stotz Investment Research

In 1992 I left a promising management career at Pepsi-Cola in California to teach finance in Thailand, and I have not stopped teaching since. In 1993, I found my life calling as a financial analyst. Over my 20-year career at brokerages and investment banks, my proudest moment was when my clients voted me #1 analyst in Thailand in the Asiamoney Brokers Polls and Institutional Investor magazine.

I now run my own company, A. Stotz Investment Research, where we provide research and research tools for institutions and high-net-worth investors; as well, we have a consulting arm that helps CEOs and management teams make their companies financially world-class.

The ValuationMasterClass.com comes from my near three decades of teaching and working in finance. I am also the host of the My Worst Investment Ever podcast, author of four books, and creator of four online courses.

I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in finance, an MBA from California State University, and a Ph.D. in finance from the University of Science and Technology of China. I live in Bangkok with my 81-year-old mother, who will attest that I remain an analyst at heart!
