I am a seasoned capital markets professional. I have experienced some of the turmoil in the market like the technology bubble in 1999, the crash that followed; the most recent 2007-2009 U.S. real estate/banking crisis and the European financial crisis that is still playing out. These events, consulting with some of the best bottom-up stock pickers plus back testing allowed me to get a good understanding of the market and establish a positive track record of investment performance and effective risk management. My experience includes manager due diligence research and allocation across a variety of equity strategies including long, long/short, quant, and activist for global and various emerging markets. Significant experience in cash equities and equity derivatives including futures, options, swaps, synthetic equity swaps, ETFs, factor based structured strategies and fundamental research. Also FX overlay/hedging, portfolio construction, long and long/short portfolios. I have done business in USA, Europe, Bermuda and Latam, speak Spanish and have a working knowledge of Portuguese.
