Kiril Sokoloff

Kiril Sokoloff is the Chairman and founder of 13D Research. As investment legend, Barton Biggs, once observed: “Kiril Sokoloff is a breath of pure, fresh investment oxygen. He is invaluable because he is an original thinker and is not afraid to take extreme views.”

A life-long learner, Kiril is devoted to the pursuit of truth- in investments, in health, life and the living of it, wisdom of the ages, lessons of history as applied to the present, eternal truths and the way forward for humanity and the planet. He considers peace of mind and humility among his most important personal goals.

Kiril has studied history and the lessons of history for most of his life. Kiril also believes that trust is a vital component of relationships and the best way to establish it is a passionate, totally-committed desire to serve the needs of others. This can only come from the heart.
