His methodical approach leverages his technical skills, trading experience and hedge fund background to build portfolios that target risk management and capital preservation through the accumulation of positions over time.
A passionate student of the market, he and Stephen Molasky have developed a dynamic synergy to evaluate financial research and exchange investment ideas.
