Jeff is a battle-hardened investor who cut his teeth during the financial crisis of 2008. Most recently he led global macro research and tactical asset allocation at a Boston-based family office, where he created a quantitative framework for identifying relative value opportunities. A former football player and boxer, Jeff loves competition, but for his brain's sake now limits the sparring to friendly games of poker, Settlers of Catan, or Scrabble. Jeff possesses a voracious appetite for learning and a proclivity for self-improvement.

After finishing college, Mike set off on the Appalachian Trail, and kept on going: two years in Kenya, three in Manhattan and ten in London (not all on foot!) His peregrinations have made Mike an eclectic inter-disciplinarian. Professionally, his interests range from community development to high finance. But what really lights his fire is democratizing expertise: bringing the best institutional money management and planning tools to individuals. When not crunching numbers, Mike can be found in or around the water, chasing an unfortunate fish or being chased by his young son Rohan.
