"I am a better investor because I am a businessman, and a better businessman because I am an investor." - Warren Buffett
Nelson Wu, Open Square Capital's Managing Director, began investing in public securities in the early 2000s, outperforming the market by thousands of basis points annually in his portfolio before founding the firm. With over 15 years of international business, consulting and legal experience, Nelson has worked in the US, Asia and Europe. His extensive experience in mergers and acquisitions, cross-border transactions and business operations affords our firm with a broader and deeper view of what drives value for businesses. Nelson is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley and the University of Minnesota, School of Law.
His background coupled with traditional security analysis, gives us confidence to be opportunistic, contrarian and patient in our investments. We think differently about businesses because we can.
