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.

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.
