Jacob Gottlieb is among the best brains in the healthcare investment sector. He is prominent in this industry for leading some of the best performing investment companies. Currently, he is back in the investment sector after taking some time off to wind up the operations of Visium Asset Management, a company he started but was later involved in accusations of insider trading and conspiracy. Jacob Gottlieb was the co-founder of the firm and was serving as the chief investment officer. Although the firm collapsed, he was never involved in the scandal that finally led to the collapse of the company. He has always worked hard to get results in the right way. He did not know that some rogue employees were doing something illegal behind his back.
Jacob Gottlieb wanted to be an investor from a young age. While in his teenage, he won a stock investment contest that was organized by the school. He was a brilliant student who followed in the footsteps of his parents. His father and mother were both professions. The father was a professor of economics, and his mother was a physician. Gottlieb followed their steps and became both. He has a degree in economics from Brown University and an M.D from New York University Medical School.
Jacob Gottlieb has used the knowledge he had acquired from both professionals to join Wall Street as an investor in the healthcare industry. He tried medical practice but realized that it was never his potion of excellence. Gottlieb has worked with various organizations as an investment manager. He has been to Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. and Balyasny Asset Management before creating his Visium in 2005. Visium was a great company but was failed by improper conduct of some employees. He is now ready to go back in the industry and lead another great company. Altium Capital is likely to become one of the most successful firms due to his experience.
