Career History
President
2007 - Current

BFM utilizes fixed-income strategies that are actively managed, model or index based. Actively managed fixed-income mandates generally employ an active investment style that emphasizes rotation among different types of debt on a relative value basis, specific security selection, quantitative analysis of each security and the portfolio as a whole and intensive credit analysis and review. They utilize a risk-controlled, systematic process for portfolio construction and alpha generation. Alpha sources may include security selection, duration and yield curve positioning, industry rotation, asset allocation, and currency positioning. BFM's equity platform includes a broad range of products that vary according to investment style (active, scientific and passive management), market-cap (small-, mid-, small/mid-, large- and all-cap), and geography (global, international and regional). The product range may also include sector funds, long-only and long-short portfolios, as well as products that combine different strategies to create balanced and asset allocation portfolios.
