Hanif Mamdani and Emil Khimji: Canada’s Hedge Fund Kings Build Up Cash After Energy Win | Bloomberg

Excerpt: Mamdani, 50, started his career in the training program at Salomon Brothers in 1988 after his adviser at Harvard University suggested he get two years work experience before pursuing a PhD thesis. The California Institute of Technology engineering graduate never went back to school. He spent a decade on Wall Street, including two years at Credit Suisse Group AG, before returning to the Vancouver area, where he was raised. He joined Phillips, Hager & North, now a unit of RBC Global Asset Management, in 1998. Mamdani immigrated to Canada in 1974 from Kenya.

His investment philosophy, put together with the help of two analysts, Emil Khimji and Justin Jacobsen, centers on finding good companies that are being unduly punished in the market.
