Jacob Gottlieb Managing Partner and Cheif Investment Officer of Visium Asset Management LLC discovered his talent in pick winning stocks in his youth. As a matter of fact, Jacob was in the 7th grade when he entered a contest established at his school to compete at the success of stock picks that the students actually selected. Jacob not only won the event but, performed so well that his father Max Gottlieb Ph.D. and professor of economics at City University located in New York City, New York was thoroughly impressed. As a result of the successful performance of the stocks that Jacob Gottlieb picked, his father decided to open up an actual live investment trading account in the honor of his son Jacob Gottlieb. The investment trading account began to generate successful results that were beyond the capability of a 7th-grade student. After the success of picking winning stocks, a passion developed in Jacob that carried over into adulthood leading to a successful career as an investment manager. Also, Jacob became an entrepreneur in his own right by setting up a beverage selling opportunity at a local golf course in New York City as a teenager. He began purchasing beverages from a local grocery store, pulling them in a shopping cart and selling them to the golfers who needed a beverage throughout their round of golf. This small entrepreneurship opportunity began to generate the necessary skills and experience Jacob would need to become a successful businessman. Jacob also traded in baseball cards with the local youth in his neighborhood and developed the skill of being able to find, collect, and categorize entire baseball teams especially the New York Yankees. The skill sets that he learned as a youth provided much-needed guidance, insight, and intuitive understanding of how business works to generate profitable success as an entrepreneur. The talents and gifts discovered by Jacob Gottlieb in picking stocks in his youth have transitioned into a very lucrative and productive success story in the financial industry.
