Jonathan began his career at SAC Capital Advisors where he focused on long/short equity, as well as listed and OTC quantitative derivatives’ strategies. At Millennium Management, he expanded his focus on long/short equity, global macro, and derivatives’ trading, research, and risk management. A veteran in the space, Jonathan has also held roles at Cowen and Mirae Asset.

In 2013 Jonathan moved into the ETF industry, as he saw an opportunity to utilize his derivatives’ experience to expand options-based ETFs to the investment community. Throughout his time focused on ETFs, he has served in numerous roles, including portfolio manager, product developer and manager, and a marketer of options-based strategies. Additionally, Jonathan is featured in industry publications and outlets, such as Bloomberg and Nasdaq, to discuss options and asset allocation.

When not working, Jonathan can often be found on a golf course, or spending time with his wife. In his downtime, Jonathan enjoys reading about retirement and investment strategies. He firmly believes all Americans should have tools to build retirement savings and access to a quality education — his motivating reasons to enter and stay in the financial field.
