In 2012, Joel launched his own hedge fund, SaLaurMor Capital (named after his daughters, Lauren and Morgan). This was a dream that Joel had had from the early 1990s. Since inception he outperformed the hedge fund index and in many significant down months, he was able to consistently generate positive returns for his investors. He shut it down in 2016 to pursue his current dream. Prior to SaLaurMor, Joel was a portfolio manager at Citi where he managed a long/short equity and credit portfolio focused on insurers, asset managers, and specialty finance companies. Joel successfully grew that portfolio from under $100 Million in 2008 to $700 Million in 2011. In each full year as portfolio manager, he generated positive returns, including in 2008 when the market collapsed 40%. Joel has spent over 20 years analyzing, rating, and reporting on global insurers. He has over a decade of experience investing in financial stocks and working at insurance and reinsurance companies.
