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.

A stereotypical middle child, Adele has spent her entire life playing fair and resolving conflicts, valuable skills as she entertains her three grandchildren! Adele enjoys reading, baking, spending time touring the Seacoast on the back of her husband's Harley, and can be found at a nearby beach on most summer weekends.
Yon has devoted his career to pursuing the interesting and challenging, no matter where that path may lead. He has developed software, managed hedge funds and mutual funds, and allocated capital for large institutions. Before he traversed the peaks and valleys of finance, Yon received an undergraduate degree in chemistry, knowing full well he was not cut out for life in a lab! He now spends free time with his wonderful wife Nicole experiencing an odd combination of humility and pride as he watches his twin sons surpass anything he was able to achieve athletically. He is simply in awe of his daughter's grace and intelligence.
