Michael Adams began his financial writing career in 2005 as a copywriter for KCI Communications. After leaving that role, he went on to attend graduate school in the humanities. In 2012, he returned to the world of finance with another copywriter role at The Motley Fool. This is where he refined and honed his investing knowledge and skills. Over the years, he’s written marketing copy for many of the world’s major financial newsletters, including InvestorPlace, InvestingDaily and more.

Michael’s personal investing style is based on a buy-and-hold approach of primarily up-and-coming tech businesses. He uses fundamental analysis to find great companies with the possibility for tremendous growth over the course of years. Holding two MA degrees (one in Philosophy, the other in Eastern Classics), Michael’s academic background gives him the advantage of being able to sift through complex information to the heart of financial issues.

In addition to his work at the graduate level, Michael also graduated from the great books program at St. John’s College in Annapolis, Maryland. This has led him to a lifelong love of learning and reading. He currently lives in Baltimore with his wife and children. In addition to his professional work in finance, Michael is a creative writer who’s published numerous novels, stories, and poems over the years.
