He took his trading experience to several large Hedge Funds and became a portfolio manager at SAC Capital Advisors for five years. Marc later became a partner and portfolio manager at RNK Capital that invested in both private and public markets. At the Royal Bank of Canada, Marc was a managing director and a portfolio manager for their internal fund with assets over $20 billion. Bookmark Advisors was formed because Marc envisioned a firm that could provide objective, unbiased investment advice to a broad spectrum of investors that wasn't influenced by investment banking relationships, large institutional capital with leverage, and monthly performance targets that clouded the big picture for most investors. This philosophy allows for long term growth of capital with tax efficiencies. The result is effective financial planning with results and confidence from our clients. Marc graduated with a degree in Finance from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 1991. His passion for investing is unparalleled aside from his adherence to Integrity and his family.
