The Next Warren Buffett Sought in Internet-Based Talent Search by Hedge Fund

Fertilemind Capital Launches The Capitalist Collective Talent Search to Find Its Next Senior and Junior Analyst

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 27, 2011) - Fertilemind Capital is launching a talent contest where contestants post a fundamentals-based research brief on http://www.capitalistcollective.com and critique research from other contestants.

The Capitalist Collective Talent Search will have two winners: The senior analyst winner receives a position with a starting salary of $125,000 per year (plus bonus & benefits) with Fertilemind Capital, a hedge fund based in New York. The junior analyst winner receives a position paying $75,000 per year (plus bonus & benefits).

"When I first started in this business, I spent long hours in the SEC library creating my paper-based reports. Now, thanks to the Internet, the raw information needed for due diligence (SEC filings, conference calls and third party analysis) is available for all," said Aram Fuchs, General Partner of Fertilemind Capital and Founder of the Capitalist Collective. "The next Warren Buffett no longer needs to come from a certain town or possess a membership in the right club. He or she only needs shrewd business acumen, a hunger for research and a good Internet connection."

The finalists will be picked from their work on the site. The Grand Finale, where the two finalists for each position will present their final picks, will be at The Capitalist Collective Stock Picking Festival (sponsored by the New York Society of Security Analysts) to be held in August of 2011 in New York City.
