Enhance your investment process with our research

Hi, I’m Nick. I started my career as a bond trader with JP Morgan and Salomon Brothers, before running my own hedge fund in the ’90s.  I retired from managing outside money in 2001 to run my family office.  I’ve developed these systematic investing tools to help identify when to reduce risk exposure and when to adopt a more aggressive approach.
