For more than 15 years, Jake Vincent has put his education in psychology to work as an institutional investor specializing in global macroeconomic analysis, portfolio management and trade structuring.
In 2007, Mr. Vincent joined the newly launched Comac Capital, where he ultimately served as Head of Strategy, helping the fund grow to $6.5 billion in AuM, thanks in large part to 30%+ returns during the financial crisis.
Following Comac's transformation from hedge fund to private family office, Mr. Vincent left to become a Global Macro Portfolio Manager at Balyasny Asset Management. While there, he developed a disciplined, process-driven approach to investment and portfolio management as a result of his work with Bija Advisors, and specifically, CEO Stephen Duneier. The innovative applications of decision architecture and other techniques borne out of the cognitive sciences resonated with Mr. Vincent, given the direct link to his studies in Psychology and Philosophy at Durham University in England, and as a member of the British Psychological Society.
As a Senior Advisor at Bija Advisors, Mr. Vincent draws from his experience as a sell-side strategist at Standard Chartered, Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse in New York and London, and experienced hedge fund manager. He delivers his own unique brand of insight on global macro themes, behavioral investment process, and trade ideas through Bija publications. In addition, Mr. Vincent is responsible for constantly improving the Bija client experience and curating our rapidly growing community of clients and subscribers.
Mr. Vincent is a former board member and current advisory board member for non-profit Mentor Me, and is currently launching a new non-profit aimed at improving education for financial and retirement planning.
