One of the Authors

JM is an investigative writer and strategic thinker, inquisitive and persistent. He’s been intensively trained to maintain a cool, level-headed and analytical focus under extreme conditions.  With close to 10 years of supreme low flying in the Canadian and Dutch Air Forces, JM has managed risk in the most demanding of circumstances; experience which he’s put to good use following his decision to set his sights on a career in highly focused asset management.

Today, what tragically little is left of my hair, has turned a whiter shade of pale  …

After settling down on Wall Street, JM received his Series 7 and Series 9/10 Securities Licenses, and specialised in equity, option and derivatives trading. He’s endured all financial crashes and crises of the 80’s, 90’s, 2001, 2008 and 2012 at close quarters, and for >39 years lived and breathed the investment management & venture capital industry.

During the 90’s and 2000’s, JM specialised in the healthcare & biotechnology industries. His strength is detection of major trends and shifts early-on in the pharmaceutical industry and macro-economic events. He’s recognized for broad scientific insight and in-depth knowledge about global financial markets.

In June 2000, JM set up and ran a deep-focus private equity firm with his close friend and business partner DN. They operated with two high quality advisory boards and established a strong, international network. In 2011, they sold the company and up until end 2019, managed a buy-out of the firm’s main biotech asset. JM’s 25-year track record (1995–2019) shows a consistent 30% annual return (>700-times his money).

The Key to Success
