After graduating from Seton Hall University with a degree in accounting, Michael Melissinos began his research into systematic trend-following while working as a junior analyst at Bear Stearns and J.P. Morgan. Both the Bear Stearns collapse and the subsequent financial crisis motivated him to challenge the traditional investing approach and try to develop something better. In 2011, four partners contributed a total of $300,000 to help Michael launch his fund management career. Today, he manages money for more than 30 individuals and institutions.
