Portfolio Manager Ben Zacks has used his expertise to navigate through the market’s ups and downs…several times.
There is no substitute for experience. Ben Zacks is a nationally recognized investment strategist and has historically made many timely and profitable investment decisions. Ben was one of the founders of Zacks Investment Research in 1978, and for years worked on developing, and perfecting, our various strategies and models.
He then used this intimate knowledge of Zacks’ research to begin managing money for clients when he founded Zacks Investment Management in 1992. Ben has a B.A. in Economics from Boston University.
Mitch Zacks wrote the book on how to exploit analysts’ strengths and foibles…literally.
Mitch Zacks is the firm’s primary expert on quantitative investing, and has personally developed many of the proprietary models we use in the management of our strategies. Mitch has written two books on quantitative investment strategies, Ahead Of The Market, which details the Zacks method for spotting stocks early in any economy, and The Little Book of Stock Market Profits: The Best Strategies of All Time Made Better, which was published in 2011 and was one of the top selling investment books at that time.
