Jeffry Schneider, CEO and founder of Ascendant Capital, LLC., is a man who lives his life with purpose and dedication. Early in life, after receiving his Bachelor’s degree in science from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, he decided to begin working in the financial services industry. His list of work experience includes time spent at Merrill Lynch, Alex Brown, and Smith Barney, and all of these places helped him to gain a deep understanding of the alternative investments field. After these, he spent time with both Axiom Capital Management and Paradigm Global Advisors as a part of their management teams. During this time he built solid relationships with hedge fund managers to make sure they were the right match for the numerous clients at these firms. He also advised alternative investment managers on the best way to put together their investment vehicles.
With over 24 years of experience in the financial services industry, to date, Jeffry Schneider now runs Ascendant Capital successfully. His carefully picked team of over thirty employees all feel like they are part of a family. The culture at Ascendant is a stand out, because Jeffry openly promotes a work atmosphere based upon trust, honesty, transparency, and encouragement. Many believe this is a huge part of the reason why the company has raised over $1 billion. In fact, Jeffry and team plan on raising the bar and earning close to $50 million a month over the next year.
Outside of his success at Ascendant, Jeffry Schneider is a philanthropist with a deep care for people. He supports a wide variety of charities and among these are Wonders and Worries, Gods Love We Deliver, the Gazelle Foundation, Cherokee Home for Children, and Camp Honey Creek’s Summer Dream Program. Many of these charitable organizations help children who are either suffering through abuse or neglect or who have parents who are facing difficulties and need assistance. Jeffry firmly believes that children shouldn’t have to face these kinds of difficulties alone, and because of him man kids have received education, shelter, counseling, food, and other resources during some of the most difficult times in their lives.
