Jeffry Schneider is a financial expert who has founded four financial advisory firms after working in the financial sector for many years. Schneider, a native of Manhattan, graduated with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. During his career he has developed a wide range of knowledge in financial products and services and today specializes in alternative investing.
In 2012, after working for several well-known financial industry companies Jeffry Schneider decided to found his own financial advisory company, Axiom Capital Management, in Austin, Texas. In May 2004 he founded Paradigm Global Advisors which was a fund of funds. While working at Paradigm Schneider learned how to evaluate financial managers and pick the ones that “earn their keep”. In 2004 he decided to focus on providing alternative investments to his clients and so founded another company, Alternative Investments. Investing in alternative investments involves putting funds into assets other than stocks and bonds such as hedge funds, commodities, and real estate.
It was in March 2012 that Schneider founded Ascendant Capital, LLC. He is again focused on providing alternative investment solutions to his clients, especially ones that are not generally available to regular investors. The funds that he has identified as appropriate for his clients are supported by him through services through services such as education and marketing that he supplies to private banks, registered investment advisors, brokerage firms, and other financial institutions.
Schneider believes that alternative investments give his clients an excellent way to further diversify their assets and reduce the volatility of their investments since they are not correlated to the stock market. He has said that he expects they will lead to greater gains over the next several years compared to stocks given current market conditions.
Since founding Ascendant Capital, Jeffry Schneider has led the company to steady growth. The company now employs over 30 people and works with over 250 investment advisors, 50 brokers, and many more smaller offices. The capital that he has raised has been put to good use purchasing technology companies, car dealerships, and real estate among other lucrative opportunities.
