About Sandy Chin

Looking Forward To Mentoring
Sandy Chin would be more than happy to mentor people and help them find a path to building a great portfolio. One piece of advice she would offer a young associate is to not be afraid of asking for more. More includes opportunities, higher wages, promotions, participating in phone calls, and sitting in on meetings. She says go for more at every chance you get. The more hands-on experience you can get, the better you will be at picking stocks.
Why Sandy’s Mentor Was So Special
The most surprising thing about Sandy Chin’s mentor Bill Leach is that he was semi-retired when she contacted him to think about starting Tidal Bore Capital. It would be Chin’s first solo venture, but also the first long or short fund that was focused on consumer staples. Bill agreed and they worked really hard to create the fund. Today, is he fully retired, but they still keep in touch regularly to discuss stock ideas and their sector. The fact that Bill is still around post-retirement, teaching Sandy Chin things is extremely surprising. She couldn’t imagine being able to have any of her success without his influence.
