Jay Rogers - President & Founder
Jay Rogers is an investment management professional with over 17 years working in the financial services industry. His financial background began with a career on the sell side with such firms as Morgan Stanley, Wells Fargo and Bear Stearns. He later worked as Chief Investment Officer for a family office and made his transition to the buy side with a startup long only equity manager. For several years he also worked for an independent third party marketing firm raising money in both traditional and alternative asset classes. Alpha Strategies was formed through a group of highly experienced investment professionals with a shared belief that boutique investment managers as well as qualified investors are still underserved in their access to deep domain expertise in alternative investments and certain long only investment strategies generating consistently high levels of “pure” alpha. It has since grown into a diversified financial services company with specialties in alternative investment consulting, management and marketing.
