Jeffry Schneider is the Founder of Ascendant Capital LLC, a boutique firm focused on offering alternative investment solutions by finding private equity, real estate and hedge funds that are often elusive to most investors. Ascendant Capital does not stop at sourcing capital; it further identifies various investment channels suited to diverse groups of investors. These investors are fully reinforced with marketing, educational, operational and sales services.
Jeffry has extensive financial experience that he acquired while working in other financial firms. This has enabled him to craft innovative financial structures that have propelled Ascendant Capital into achieving unprecedented growth. The company has become a leader in raising funds for both existing and developing alternative asset fund sponsors. Working closely with broker-dealers, Family Offices, Registered Investment Advisors and Private Banks, Jeffry, together with his team of thirty employees, has managed to raise close to $1 billion. This money has made it possible for the company to buy auto dealerships, real estate property, and tech companies among other assets.
After attaining a degree from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Schneider served executive positions in various firms. These positions bequeathed him with valuable capabilities that later helped him to establish his own business. He started his career at Paradigm Global Advisors; he was able to deepen his skills of identifying the right managers while working here. Thereafter, he shifted to Axiom Capital Management, and also had a stint at Smith Barney, Merrill Lynch, and Alex Brown.
Jeffry is optimistic that, with the right culture of openness and trust embraced by both employees and clients of Ascendant Capital, the company will continue to experience growth in global scale. The promising growth in alternative investments has also seen the company ambitiously set to raise $50 million in just one month.
Like any ordinary man, Jeffry Schneider is a husband and a dad. In addition, he is health conscious and committed to eating healthy diets. Also, he is a marathon participant and has traveled far and wide across the globe in search of adventure. Jeffry is also involved in philanthropic work and donates to various organizations such as Cherokee Home for Children, God Loves We Deliver, Wonders and Worries, and the Gazelle Foundation.
