Vesper Capital Management, headquartered in in Lasdale, Pennsylvania was created to enhance the lives of others by bringing to market innovative investment strategies to help individual and institutional investors better achieve their investment goals. The firm combines innovative research conducted at a major U.S. university with deep investment and entrepreneurial experience to deliver unique quantitative strategies.
Founded by West Virginia University Professor K. Victor Chow, Ph.D., CFA., industry veteran John Thompson and entrepreneur George Elias, Vesper draws upon over sixty years of collective quantitative research and investment management experience to develop active, customized indices and investment products designed to outperform the major market indexes while incurring equal or less volatility.
Dr. Chow’s research on behavioral biases and the often-studied short-term reversal effect forms the basis for the firm’s investment indices and products. John Thompson and George Elias’s extensive experience in distribution and business management transforms Dr. Chow’s research into the firm’s offerings.
