Jeffry Schneider, the CEO and founder of Ascendant Capital, LLC., lives an exemplary life of hard work, perseverance, and philanthropy. He started out his career by working for numerous top-notch firms, such as, Smith Barney, Alex Brown, and Merrill Lynch, and learned plenty about the alternative investing market while there. After spending time with those firms, he moved on and became part of the management teams of Paradigm Global Advisors and Axiom Capital Management. While there, he ensured that certain hedge fund managers were a good fit for the wide range of clientele that the firms had. The relationships he built during those times helped him to grow, and he now has over 24 years of experience in the alternative investments industry.
As the go-to-guy for alternative investing, Jeffry Schneider created Ascendant, which is a boutique investment firm that specializes in these types of investment opportunities. Under Jeffry’s guidance, the company has earned over $1 billion for several different managers and works with over fifty broker dealers, numerous family offices, and 250 investment advisors. The profit made is directed towards the purchase of auto dealerships, tech companies, and real estate, and the company looks to improve by raising $50 million a month over the next twelve months.
Jeffry Schneider believes in giving, and as a respected philanthropist he has helped countless people through his donations of time and money. One of the organizations he has supported, the Gazelle Foundation, works to construct clean water systems for the people of Burundi, Africa. Without this water, the people would suffer greatly with disease, poor health, and possibly death. The water helps not only the general population, but it goes to building the infrastructure of the area by being pumped into educational institutions, medical facilities, and churches. To date, $1.3 million has been raised, and Jeffry is proud to take part in this organization.
Jeffry Schneider works very hard to stay in tip-top shape, and one way he does this is by participating in half ironman challenges. On his Vimeo page, you can watch a video of him competing in an ironman challenge in New Zealand. He has also traveled to Croatia, Saint Croix, Chile, and many different states in the U.S.A. to compete.
