There, he specialized in small- and mid-cap value stock analysis, while contributing to portfolio management. He also spent a number of years at Wachovia Bank as a financial advisor and currency trader. Kent’s academic interest is whetted each year at his alma mater, Wake Forest, where he teaches graduate and undergraduate classes on equity analysis.
