In 2016, there is this announcement that came from Visium Asset management. The organization talked of how it could wind down in business due to the charges that were emanating from mis-marking of the bond. Visium Asset Management is an organization headed by Jacob Gottlieb who acts as the CIO.
Despite the challenges in Visium Asset Management, Jacob is still the principal executive who is still standing firm at Visium. Jacob is described as a captain who doesn’t abandon his sinking ship. It is after Jacob made a significant contribution when establishing the organization in 2005. Even as the organization is winding down, he still plays his role as the CIO.
Visium Asset Management has been focusing on healthcare hedge fund. When starting Visium Asset Management, Jacob had partners who left, and he was the perfect man to establish the organization. The reason behind it is that he had a degree in medical and had experience in finance. Gottlieb attained his degree in medicine from NYU’s Medicine school. When he finished his internship, he became more attracted to the economics and immediately started by searching the Wall Street for a job.
Jacob’s first job landed him at Sanford Company in 1998 where he was the organization’s buy-side analyst. He used to cover global healthcare in his position. After he worked for some years, Jacob left and continued with his career working for Merlin Biomed Group as the healthcare portfolio manager. He worked for a short period then quickly moved to work at BAM. When Jacob was working at BAM, he was building a team. He had a reputation that he created and made him be the top earner of the organization. He was looking to manage more money and together with his team started Visum Asset Management with $300 million as their seed capital.
Some members left, and they no longer work at Visium Asset management. Joshua Brown used to be the portfolio manager and partner at Visium Asset management. He is an Indiana University graduate holding a degree in finance. He spent more than a decade working at Visium, and he works currently at Paulson company as the Senior Vice President. The others who left include Steven Ku, Ron Belldegrun, and Neetu Dhaliwal.
