About Warwick Simons

Warwick grew up in New Zealand and left those beautiful shores after university to work for Bain & Company in Sydney. Warwick moved to London with Bain, which sponsored him through his MBA at INSEAD in France and Singapore.

Warwick left Bain to join London-based hedge fund Pendragon Capital to start investing professionally. Despite a successful run at Pendragon, Warwick was forced to explore other opportunities after the firm closed following the financial crisis.

In 2010, Warwick moved to Hong Kong and joined GaveKal Research, before moving to Goldman Sachs’ GS SUSTAIN research team to identify the best long-term investments globally. Warwick rose to lead the Asian team before leaving in late 2016.

Warwick started Cogent Investing in early 2017, to provide investment insights that help Cogent’s subscribers invest their own savings more effectively.

Warwick lives in Hong Kong with his wife Sarah Heller, their young family and their dog Kevin (introduced here).
