Investopedia spoke with Erez Kalir, CEO and co-founder of Stansberry Asset Management, about his greatest investment influence.

Prior to joining Stansberry Asset Management, Erez Kalir co-founded Sabretooth Capital, an event-driven fund that invested in distressed credit and equities, and managed $1 billion in assets for investors including Julian H. Robertson, the Rockefeller family, and several highly-regarded endowments. He also worked at Eton Park Capital Management, a large hedge fund spun out of Goldman Sachs, as the first analyst hired into the Special Situations Group. Erez’s experience includes time spent as an Engagement Manager at McKinsey & Co., a Special Counsel to FCC Chairman Bill Kennard, and a law clerk on the Federal Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in Manhattan.

Erez holds a J.D. from Yale Law School, where he was a senior editor of the Law Journal and a Coker Fellow; an MSc. with distinction (highest honors) from Magdalen College, Oxford, where he studied on a Rhodes Scholarship; and an A.B. (highest honors) from Stanford University.  He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Young President’s Organization Manhattan Chapter, the New York Economic Club, and the Atlas 400. He has been an invited investment presenter at the Ira Sohn Conference and the Greenwich Roundtable, and named to Institutional Investor’s “Hedge Fund Rising Stars” list. Erez lives in New York but is originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, which he still considers home.
