Jacob Gottlieb has founded his latest company, Altium Capital, after the closing of his previous investment company. He previously was the owner and former Chief Investment Officer of Visium Asset Management, a primarily healthcare directed investment firm. Several of the top level executives of Visium were found to be involved in an insider trading scandal that rocked the company and forced its demise. Jacob had led the company to a high level of success and recognition before the government investigation started. He was not found guilty of any wrongdoing.
His interest in investing, a lifetime passion for Jacob, was the impetus for the creation of Altium Capital. His in-depth understanding of the complexities of investing seem to come naturally to Jacob. He became intrigued in the market as a young teen after he ended up the winner of a contest in school. It was a contest for picking stocks and Jacob excelled at it. His father saw his potential, and he helped him continue on to develop his skill. Jacob Gottlieb was also interested in becoming a medical professional, and his schooling included the completion of his M.D.
Jacob earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics upon his graduation from Brown University. He further pursued his education at NYU Medical School, and there he earned his M.D. He finished his medical internship at New York City’s St. Vincent’s Hospital. Even though Jacob was fully prepared and ready to begin practicing medicine, his love for the world of finance won over. However, his commitment to the healthcare industry did not wain. The healthcare sector was a major focus of the companies that Jacob Gottlieb founded over the years, including that of Altium Capital.
The first position that Jacob Gottlieb pursued in his investment career was at Sanford C. Bernstein & Co., a firm based in New York City. Jacob went on to achieve a Certified Financial Analyst (CFA) designation to better himself financially and professionally. It was several years later that Jacob Gottlieb went into his first business for himself.
