Agenda:

Presentation by Joel S. Salomon on his Upcoming Book: Mindful Money Management: Memoirs of a Hedge Fund Manager.

Joel will give a sneak preview of his upcoming book, Mindful Money Management. A testimonial from an insurance company CEO gives an insightful description: “Joel followed a path less travelled to pursue a dream that many in the financial community share. While he was successful in achieving his ‘dream job’ of running a hedge fund, the experiences that followed led to a personal transformation and enlightenment that may surprise many readers. Joel provides a candid account of his journey, including successes, failures and a number of interesting direction changes along the way. His story shares a behind the scenes view of the realities involved in starting and running a hedge fund along with uniquely personal observations coupled with a great fabric of philosophical insights from other experts that Joel admires. This book will be instructional to those interested in professional investing as well as anyone interested in learning to truly follow their dreams.”
Biography:
JOEL SALOMON BIO
In 2016, Joel shifted his focus to assisting individuals as a Prosperity Coach where he works closely with his clients to help identify and overcome the roadblocks standing in their way of personal financial freedom.
In 2012, Joel launched his own hedge fund, SaLaurMor Capital (named after his daughters, Lauren and Morgan). This was a dream that Joel had had from the early 1990s. Since inception he outperformed the hedge fund index and in many significant down months, he was able to consistently generate positive returns for his investors. Prior to SaLaurMor, Joel was a portfolio manager at Citi where he managed a long/short equity and credit portfolio focused on insurers, asset managers, and specialty finance companies. Joel successfully grew that portfolio from under $100 Million in 2008 to $700 Million in 2011. In each full year as portfolio manager, he generated positive returns, including in 2008 when the market collapsed 40%. Joel has spent over 20 years analyzing, rating, and reporting on global insurers. He has over a decade of experience investing in financial stocks, and working at insurance and reinsurance companies. Joel was designated a Fellow of the Society of Actuaries in 1992 and has been a Chartered Financial Analyst since 1995. Joel holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Rochester where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a double major in Mathematics and Statistics.
