Having spent his early career in the heart of Wall Street, Asher’s experience includes diverse and rare areas of finance. He worked on the foreign exchange trading desk of a prominent investment bank during the 2007-2009 financial crisis. From this vantage point, Asher witnessed the complex interconnections between various asset classes and global economies. His responsibilities included designing and implementing high-frequency trading algorithms, dealing complex derivatives, and proprietary trading.
Asher is a proud member of the FeeOnlyNetwork, meaning that he does not accept commissions or kickbacks from brokerage firms or issuers of securities. He also belongs to the National Association of Active Investment Managers (NAAIM), an industry group for Registered Investment Adviser firms developing strategies to outperform generic passive investing.
