For a man who has loves investing and has been doing so since his teen years the closure of one business is not the end of life. That is former Visium Asset Management LP owner Jacob Gottlieb for you. It will be remembered that in 2016, Jacob closed down his investment company after allegations of insider trading and inflation of the company assets that saw some of his employees charged in court of law.
Mr. Gottlieb who was not charged with any wrongdoings clearly has not caught any sleep in the two years. In addition to liquidating the company amicably, the decorated hedge fund manager has been plotting his comeback to the market. With no clear timings laid out, he seems to have found out just the right product to do so, health care stocks!
Currently Jacob Gottlieb is involved with Altium Capital a family office and has a total of six employees mostly managing his personal investments. Like Visium, Altium Capital bets in health care stocks and with the leadership of Gottlieb’s brother, Mark Gottlieb, as its COO (chief operating officer) things look promising.
Jacob Gottlieb, a medical doctor is optimistic of the market and promises a new product soon. According to Jacob, he thinks that the time for a hedge fund that is health care focused is now. The investor takes note of the numerous companies that have gone public over the last five years alone noting that soon the value creation and destruction of the health-care hedge fund will be high. To help client’s get value of their investment Gottlieb’s thoughtful and methodically researched hedge fund will come in handy.
As we await Gottlieb’s official announcement date of his hedge fund, we are curious to find out if truly his healthcare hedge fund will live up to its expectations, only time will tell. However, we should never forget that Gottlieb’s once created $8 billion in assets out of Visium for the period 2005 to 2016!

Sometimes when you come up with the idea for a new business it’s like lightning striking you. You can have everything that you need to make a good business, but it still could fail. Sometimes the best thing to do is call in an expert that understands the market. Alex Hern is one of those experts who has more than 25 years of experience in the technology market. This expertise has helped him successfully nurture companies from the ground up for many years. He has made such a splash in the business world that he recently sat down with Ideamensch to elaborate on the ways that he perpetuates his own success.
One of the habits that Alex Hern explains to Ideamensch is the most beneficial to his success is his ability to completely focus on one project. This is a habit he has been cultivating for many years and believes that it is a cornerstone of his success. While Alex Hern understands it is almost impossible to work exclusively on one project at a time he likes to take a few hours out of every single day to focus on just one problem. This is how he was able to successfully launch his company Tsunami XR. He believes that multitasking takes away from a personal success and distracts them from the projects that are really important.
Tsunami XR is going to be really important because GPU’s are rising in popularity. There are more people interested in the power of GPU processing over CPU processing. The reason for this is because the GPU is capable of transporting more memory even if it is at a slower speed. This slower speed can be rectified through the use of multiple GPU’s that will then queue up with information. This queue ensures that the information will remain available in a near constant stream after that. CPUs could be used in much the same manner they usually cap out at around two unit per system. Tsunami XR will be built around this new GPU-based system. With Alex Hern at the head, they will offer programs and software applications that cater to this type of computation style.

Few understand how the Internet impacted the world. Shervin Pishevar is trying to create awareness of a new economy that does not require individuals to remain silent and complacent. Citizens no longer need to accept only what another human being will distribute via it be by pseudo-capitalism, communism, or other non-technology centric economic system. Shervin Pishevar recognized that we have the power, in direct communication with each other, to make our own deals.
Global Economic Climate Change
Too big to fail banks relied upon pre-Internet economics to argue their necessity. Americans bought into their empty image. Bailing out the banks of 2008 was a mistake. Few argue against this economic diagnosis. Still, many fear change more than they do mismanagement of their finances.
One good thing that came out of the 2008 bailout was motivation in the fintech entrepreneurial space. Satoshi Nakamoto digitally penned an idea that would prevent such an occurrence from ever happening again. Who could foresee how receptive everyday citizens from around the world would take Satoshi’s idea?
Today, the largest companies of the world are following in the footsteps of these early blockchain pioneers. Shervin Pishevar touched upon this market condition in bringing attention to tech monopolies and their stifling of small business. Must they be at odds? Is there any way that blockchain technology can provide a solution? Shervin Pishevar believes that blockchain will win out in a monopolistic economic climate. After all, it was blockchain that succeeded in the wake of the big banks and it is in blockchain developers whom these large corporations follow.
Emerging Solutions in Blockchain
It was the little startups that brought us blockchain. Long established organizations followed later. Whether they be first world governments or corporate conglomerates, many who had held power before the Internet are now finally playing catch up.
1/ Some thoughts on financial storms I seeing brewing ahead. I expect 6000 point drop in aggregate in months ahead. Here’s why.
Blockchain technology has so many potential applications. One of the most notable is in logistics. In a world interconnected across oceans, logistics are increasingly important to distribute products beyond regional locations, across national borders, and through conflict areas.
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of United Technology Corporation(UTC), Louis R. Chenevert has retired as of November 2014. Leaving behind a extremely successful company.
For his educational background beforehand entrepreneur Louis first received a Bachelor of Commerce degree in production management from the “Université de Montréal”, École des hautes études commerciales (HEC) and an Honorary Doctorate from the “University of Montreal”. Louis spent 14 years at General Motors gaining experience than serving as Production General Manager of General Motors’ St. Therese operation. Than he joined Pratt and Whitney through 1993 until april of 2006 where he then joined UTC.
Chenevert Time At UTC
The idea for UTC came because of the drive to create products that could change people’s lives because of this drive they have continuously been creating technology that has been changing the entire way we think of things now.
When Louis was at UTC the focus was on operational talent and engineering. They wanted something that could exceed what the customer wanted. To do that they had small teams and operational leadership teams that got all the necessities needed to achieve their objectives.
When he was working there one thing he made sure to do was to ignore the idea of outsourcing. Instead of moving to countries that would work for cheap he did the opposite he chose to move it to the United States. He believed cheap pay is the equivalent of receiving cheap products.
The corporation became very successful even with the hardships that were gone through to get it to the standard it was at.
Why Would He Want To Leave?
There was no big scandalous reason behind him retiring his position. There was no bad reputation held by UTC or any big commotion caused by Louis. He simply decided that he wanted to live a semi- retired life and have some extra time. So he can now enjoy his life just a little bit more than before and experience new passions and behind him he left the highly successful company of United Technology Corporation.
