    About Jan Svenda
    Jan is a “deep value” investor/analyst mainly focused on the US small-cap and micro-cap universe. He started out with a long-only bias (stocks trading close to NCAV etc.) which led to his interest in the OTC world.
    Jan now covers this space through his exclusive newsletter service where he shares his latest long ideas and a watchlist of OTC stocks which should help subscribers generate material returns and allow them to “monitor” the OTC space more efficiently.
    The service also acts as a community of engaged members who share the same focus. On top of this, he is interested in short-focused research especially in the thesis revolving around accountancy or earnings manipulation.
    From time to time he also contributes to Safety in Value’s marketplace ‘Microcap Review’.
