Dustin Hudspeth joined Tilia Fiduciary Partners in 2022. Dustin’s core duties include investment research and aiding in the process of portfolio management. Prior to Tilia, Dustin lived in a small town in Southern Arkansas before joining the Military and ending up in Wilmington, NC. After five years as a Reconnaissance Marine, Dustin decided to reignite a passion for finance and is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Accountancy.
Dustin believes that the first question an investor ought to ask is “how much?”. As a strategic value investor, Dustin doesn’t just pay attention to the business itself, but also the price tag that comes along with it. Dustin also believes that the only insight in the market tends to be hindsight, and with that comes much uncertainty about the future. To combat this, Dustin believes in assessing securities by factoring in an “adequate” margin of safety and never paying too high a price over intrinsic value.
