Ascendant Capital, LLC Founder and CEO, Jeffry Schneider, is a successful alternative investor whose leadership skills are second to none. It takes a lot to run a billion dollar business, and to do it well, you need the kind of stamina, dedication, charisma, and care for people that a man like Jeffry Schneider has. While many other business’s have failed due to a lack of vision and creativity, Ascendant has thrived and grown. The company started out with only two employees and now has over thirty. It looks to be earning $50 million a month over the next year, and countless family offices, investment advisors, and broker dealers can thank Ascendant for a large part of their own success.
At Ascendant, Jeffry Schneider has carefully crafted a special company that cares about its employees. He assures, daily, that every single employee feels appreciated, valued, and encourages them to share their ideas and opinions in a transparent environment that focuses on trust rather than greed. The health of his employees are also of great concern to Jeffry and he pushes himself to research about the latest health findings and to provide the office-place with plenty of nutritious food options. Jeffry also takes part in half ironman challenges outside of the business to ensure that he is doing all he can for his own health.
He started out his work career by spending time with numerous prestigious firms, such as, Alex Brown, Smith Barney, and Merrill Lynch and also worked as part of the management staff for both Axiom Capital Management and Paradigm Global Advisors. While with these companies he learned all about alternative investing and was, and still is, the go-to-guy for advise about how to best structure various investment vehicles. With over 24 years of experience in the financial services industry, now, he knows his stuff. During the earliest years of Ascendant, Jeffry helped Virtus Real Estate raise six different funds that eventually purchased more than $1.5 billion in Real Estate.
Outside of work Jeffry has supported loads of charities and among them are the Gazelle Foundation, Wonders and Worries, the Cherokee Home for Children, and Gods Love We Deliver and Jeffry on Facebook.
