Rod MacIver is a microcap investor, artist and writer living in Vermont and the Adirondacks. He considers his biggest challenge as an investor to be inactivity — the patience to wait to invest until he finds an exceptional company at a reasonable price, and then the patience to wait for the company to develop its potential. In his twenties and early thirties he was a real estate investor, investment manager and founded a research firm on Wall Street focused on the securities of out-of-favor, bankrupt and distressed companies.
