Michael Kantrowitz named Co-Head of Portfolio Strategy


NEW YORK, May 8, 2018 – Cornerstone Macro, an investment research broker-dealer, announced today that Michael Kantrowitz was named Co-Head of the Portfolio Strategy division. Kantrowitz has worked alongside current head of Portfolio Strategy François Trahan for 11 years across three different firms. The Trahan/Kantrowitz partnership holds a strong following in the world of money management, particularly as it pertains to macro influences on financial markets. In recognition of their contribution to sell-side research, the team has placed first or second in Institutional Investor magazine’s Portfolio Strategy category in every one of the past 11 years.

“Michael is one of the best strategists on the Street, and I am lucky to call him my partner. We have co-signed the written work for a long time, but his contribution to the team goes well beyond publishing. He is bar none the best researcher I have ever had the opportunity to work with in portfolio strategy. His input has elevated the work we have done on investing around the business cycle tremendously. There is zero doubt in my mind that the strategy offering at Cornerstone would not be what it is today without Michael.” said François Trahan, Managing Partner and Co-Head of Portfolio Strategy.
Prior to Cornerstone Macro, Kantrowitz worked at Wolfe Trahan, ISI, and Merrill Lynch in strategy research across various roles. He is a CFA Charterholder and holds a bachelor’s degree in financial economics from SUNY at Binghamton.

Cornerstone Macro (www.cornerstonemacro.com) was founded in 2013 under the leadership of Andy Laperriere, Nancy Lazar, Roberto Perli, and François Trahan, each among the top-ranked analysts on Institutional Investor’s All-American Research Team for much of the past decade.
