Investing
Dan’s investing interests lay in great companies, arbitrage, and special situations. His style can be called "concentrated value" - rather than owning a little bit of everything, he concentrates his capital on his best ideas. Dan works every day to learn and improve his investing skills. He writes about his journey and process for The Motley Fool.

FinTech
The financial services industry is, finally, beginning to rapidly be affected by the technology-enabled disruptive innovation trends that have swept through so many other industries in the past ten years. There are huge opportunities for those who use today’s new technologies and platforms to offer innovative services. Dan thinks about, works on, and writes about the FinTech space.
