Ruminations of a Taco-Obsessed Philly Native

Jacob Gottlieb is a son of Polish immigrants who relocated to the United States back in the 1960s in search of better working conditions. The parents of Gottlieb had successful careers such that the mother was a pediatrician while his father was a professor in economics. As a result of the early exposure in economics and medicine, Jacob Gottlieb developed an interest in the two disciplines where he pursued them in the higher education. The love and passion for investing were identified at an early age. For instance, when he was in 7th grade, Gottlieb won a stock selection contest that was held at his school. As a result of his newfound passion, his father set him up with his investing trading account. Later after completing his secondary education, Gottlieb enrolled in the university where he studied the two discipline of economics and medicine. He completed a Bachelor of Arts in economics and Doctor of Medicine from the University of Brown and NYU Medical School respectively.

Jacob Gottlieb at first had interest in pursuing medicine, and he even completed an internal medicine internship at St. Vincent Hospital before changing his mind and enrolled for a finance course on Wall Street. Changing his career from medicine to finance proved essential since it enabled him to develop crucial managerial skills. After completing his studies, Gottlieb began his trading in 1998 by working with Sanford C. Bernstein as an analyst dealing with global healthcare. After a short duration working with Sanford C. Bernstein, Jacob left to advance his career and became the healthcare portfolio manager in Merlin Biomed Group. Jacob Gottlieb did move from Merlin to Balyansy to become a top earner. After having an extensive portfolio gains Jacob and his team left the BAM and went on to incorporate Visium in 2005. Consequently, Jacob enabled the Visium to generate more than $8 billion worth of investment with more than 170 employees.

The popularity of Jacob is not a result of only enabling Visium to become the largest hedge fund but also by charity work he engaged. For instance, he was involved actively in the operation and the management of Covenant House. The Covenant House is a global organization that has been in operation since the 1970s, and the primary purpose is to help and protect children from a poor background. The primary focus of the organization is to give shelter, food and other essentials to the youth who are homeless as well as running away from human trafficking. Besides, Jacob is involved in Math for America Foundation.

Right in the interesting moment I think the chance for Jacob to sell is now if he can leverage on the better views he get. Like no other people, show that they have turned to the best point as well since it makes it every chance clear. Quite the same for everyone who loves the Visium, I think it is best to keep informed here as they have a smart approach.
