Maj has been an investor since 1989 (full-time investor since 1994), turning $3,000 into his first million by 1998. He co-founded GeoInvesting in 2007 to bring institutional quality long-based investment research to the average investor and help broaden the awareness of the opportunities that exist in the inefficient micro-cap and small-cap equity universe and U.S Listed China stocks (“ChinaHybrids”).

By combining the tenants of growth + value, GeoInvesting long biased research has produced over 50 stocks that have more than doubled and over 40 stocks that have been acquired.  Maj was also instrumental in developing a strategy to broaden GeoInvesting’s scope to perform and disseminate in-house short thesis research reports on companies across market-cap spectrums. GeoInvesting was among the first players to begin to openly question the financials and overall representations of U.S Listed China stocks to investors. He played a significant role in educating market participants on the risks associated with investing in “ChinaHybrids.”  This has been instrumental in GeoInvesting publishing 17 short thesis Pump & Dump reports with a near 100% success rate and 12 ChinaHybrids being halted and/or delisted.
