Jacob Gottlieb loves investing and won’t let his experiences at Visium keep him from enjoying the career that he has dedicated his life to. While the actions taken by the employees who were participating in insider trading were not connected to Jacob Gottlieb, he still took responsibility for the shutting down of his company as the CEO and made sure clients were returned the capital they had entrusted him with. He has been performing these duties for the last 2 years and has made the decision to move on.
While Jacob Gottlieb is currently running a new investment firm called Altium, he is thinking about getting back into the world of hedge funds. His new firm mainly focuses on managing his own wealth that he has accumulated over the years and includes his brother as their CEO. As a medical doctor, he focuses his investment decisions on the healthcare industry. If and when he decides to create a new hedge fund, it will also focus on health care with the goal to promote good research.
A lot of companies have gone public in many different fields of health care in the last few years. With this much activity happening in the stock market, there is going to be a lot of money gained and lost and Jacob Gottlieb wants to be in on the action. He hasn’t released much more information other than the fact that he is wanting to get into the business again, but people are looking forward to seeing his investment choices.
While there were several people within his company that did not practice ethically, Jacob Gottlieb is determined to move beyond their actions. The actions of a few in his company do not represent his own practices in the industry. He believes that his clients will support his future endeavors due to his successful track record in the past.
