His firm specializes in managing customized fixed income portfolios for institutions and selected individuals. Jeff will talk to Marquette students about portfolio management – as well as his firm’s fixed income investment process, strategy and investment philosophy.

·        John DeCaro, CFA, a Founding Principal and Portfolio Manager at Elementum Advisors - and Christopher Cebula, CFA, CAIA, and AIM program alumnus, a Portfolio Management Associate – will talk about collateralized natural event reinsurance investments.  Elementum has built an institutional quality alternative investment management firm that specializes in reinsurance and risk-linked investment strategies (with expertise in liquid cat-bonds and collateralized reinsurance investments).
