I have spent about 15 years on the institutional side of Wall Street. I earned my stripes trading distressed credit for Goldman Sachs’ prop book in NYC before I was a senior analyst at Och Ziff Capital prior to their IPO in 2007. In 2009, I left Och Ziff to start the hedge fund arm at a firm called Fulcrum Capital with another senior analyst from Och Ziff. Our focus was on buying & selling non-securities, specifically bankruptcy trade claims, litigation claims & bank debt in bankrupt estates across the globe in the years after the 2008 Financial Crisis. I was there for over 5 years, running our practice in Dubai, UAE for 3 years where I was responsible for managing a team of traders focused on trading risk in Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and Eastern Europe. After our first fund posted incredible performance for our LPs over 3 years, and prior to raising our second fund, I got married, decided to sell my stake in Fulcrum Capital and retired from the firm. After taking time off away from the business, I decided to come back to Wall Street and manage private client capital for high net worth families, celebrities, and professional athletes.
