I’m Dilantha De Silva, a Dubai-based investment-research analyst with a passion for equity markets. I started my investment career 5 years ago in 2014, and in February 2019, I decided to quit my 9-5 analyst position at a prominent wealth management firm in Dubai, U.A.E.

Today, I write for various investment publications including, Seeking Alpha, ValueWalk, GuruFocus, and Refinitiv. I primarily focus on long-term investment opportunities; both growth and value.

I’m a CFA level 2 candidate and an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment (CISI-UK). More than anything, I’m an avid reader and a passionate investor who loves generating alpha returns.

Beat Billions, born in December of 2019, aims to find small and medium cap stocks that would outperform large-cap stocks in the long term. I firmly believe that small companies do have characteristics that would help them perform better in the long term, despite the significant underperformance of small-cap stocks in the last 5 years.
