Keynote Speaker: Vitaliy N. Katsenelson

Vitaliy was born and raised in Murmansk, Russia (the home for Russia’s northern navy fleet, think Tom Clancy’s Red October). He immigrated to the US from Russia in 1991 with his three brothers, father, and stepmother.  (Here is a link to a more detailed story of how his family emigrated from Russia.)

His professional career is easily described in one sentence:  “I invest, I educate, I write, and I could not dream of doing anything else.”

Vitaliy is the  Chief Investment Officer at Investment Management Associates, Inc (IMA), a value investment firm based in Denver, Colorado.  He received his graduate and undergraduate degrees in finance from the University of Colorado at Denver, and finished his CFA designation shortly after.Vitaliy is a learning enthusiast and concluded the best way to learn is to teach.  Vitaliy began his teaching (learning) quest by lecturing an undergraduate class at the University of Colorado at Denver. He would later progress to a graduate investment class at the same university that he designed based on his day job.  Currently he is on sabbatical from teaching for a while.

Vitaliy has since found a love for writing.  He authors a monthly column for Institutional Investor Magazine and he’s written articles for the Financial Times, Barron’s, BusinessWeek, Christian Science Monitor, New York Post, … and the list goes on.

Vitaliy was profiled in Barron’s, and has been interviewed by Value Investor Insight, Welling@Weeden, BusinessWeek, BNN, CNBC, and countless radio shows.

Finally, his biggest achievement – well actually second biggest; he counts quitting smoking in 1992 as the biggest – he’s authored  the Little Book of Sideways Markets (Wiley, 2010) and Active Value Investing(Wiley, 2007). We are excited to have Vitaliy speak at HFG 1st Annual Stakeholders Summit.
