I am the founder, portfolio manager and President of Silverlight Asset Management, an investment advisory firm serving high net worth private clients. I’m also a columnist for RealClearMarkets. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Government from Georgetown University and hold the Chartered Financial Analyst® designation. My firm employs a dynamic investment process which blends macro analysis of the business cycle with fundamental security analysis. Markets have seasons which reward different asset classes and styles at different times. Hence, flexibility is key. Having managed through bull and bear markets, I believe a key part of achieving high returns is controlling risk. I also get that investing can be confusing. There’s a lot of advice and jargon out there. My goal for this blog is to empower readers with greater control over their wealth by showing them what works, what doesn’t, and helping them do more of the good stuff.
