Autonomous Learning Investment Strategies (ALIS) - The Third Wave
Michael Weinberg

"Autonomous Learning Investment Strategies (ALIS)” describes the emerging “third wave” of investment managers that is following on the first and second waves of fundamental discretionary and quantitative investing, respectively. Just as counter-cultural movements have upended established ways of doing things, Michael Weinberg, chief investment officer and partner of MOV37 and Protégé Partners, believes ALIS managers will as well.

Michael Weinberg has 25 years of experience investing directly at the security level and indirectly as an asset allocator in traditional and alternative assets. He is the chief investment officer and partner of MOV37 and Protégé Partners. His portfolio management experience includes Soros Fund Management LLC, Credit Suisse First Boston, and Financial Risk Management (FRM). Previously he was a research analyst at Dean Witter, currently Morgan Stanley. 

Weinberg is a board member of AIMA, on the management advisory council for the Michael Price Student Investment Fund, former-chair of value investing at CFANY, where he has received multiple awards, and a member of the Economic Club of New York.  He is published author, has been interviewed by top financial newspapers and is often a keynote speaker at conferences and universities. 

Weinberg received an M.B.A. from Columbia Business School, where he is now an adjunct professor of finance and economics, and a B.S. in economics from New York University. 

Mr. Weinberg’s Athenaeum presentation is co-sponsored by the Soll Center for Student Opportunity.
