Community matters.
Be with those who help your being.



How did an investment newsletter launched in 2014 transform into a vibrant community that inspires loyalty in some of the world’s top investors?

Well, organically. We still have the same mission today as when we started: to meaningfully inform your investing (and maybe even your inner life).

For Stray Reflections, the pursuit of truth necessarily integrates life and markets. Our members are curious and thoughtful. Knowing oneself means facing the markets not with arrogance, but in humility.

Our ability to cope with an increasingly complex world is limited. We comprehend only a small, unique fraction on our own. Our talents, our minds, they’re different, and experiences vary from one investor to the next.

That’s why community matters. When the membership puts its heads together, it’s easier (and more fun) to make sense of things. The exchange of insights is what keeps us coming back for more.

From pre-pandemic dinners to monthly online salons and our invaluable Slack group, it’s all an opportunity to foster deeper, more meaningful relationships. Rumi knew, after all: “Be with those who help your being.”

Are we a little proud that our membership counts among them the biggest and wisest investors including hedge funds, asset managers, family offices, pension funds, endowments, and sovereign wealth funds?

Maybe pride is not the right word. Their trust is what I’m most grateful for. I’m honored that investors rely on Stray Reflections for clarity, conviction, and a sense of calm. I’m here to serve.

Join us. Let’s get properly excited about the exchange of ideas.
