William G. Ferrell
Founder, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer
Starting on the trading floor at First National City Bank in January 1973, William Ferrell has been trading securities and derivatives and managing traders for over four decades. Mr. Ferrell came to New York with a B.A. in Economics and History from Hampden-Sydney College and a five-year game plan that evolved into a life-long career in financial risk management. After 11 years at Citibank as a trader, underwriter, salesman, and financial engineer, Bill joined Kidder Peabody & Co. as the Manager of the Municipal Securities Group and as the youngest member of the Board of Directors. While managing one of the three largest trading operations in the industry, he participated in the firm’s management process as a member of the Operating and Inventory, (capital and risk allocation) Committees, and, ultimately, the Management Committee of the firm.
In 1988, Mr. Ferrell founded Ferrell Capital Management to offer risk consulting and risk-managed investments to large money center banks. Solving capital and risk allocation issues for financial institutions has resulted in the development of a comprehensive tool kit of methodologies and measurement algorithms. He pioneered the concept of managing investment accounts to target volatility levels and has created proprietary methodologies for allocating investment capital. From 2000 through 2011, he was the Chief Investment Officer for a fund of over 100 hedge funds providing an opportunity to work with many of the world’s finest money managers.
Today, Concert Asset Management stands out as an investment manager with a unique set of tools and applications to manage assets for traditional investors. Utilizing the powerful advantage of artificial Intelligence to manage market exposures, we offer the Concert AI strategies.
Mr. Ferrell has published numerous articles on portfolio performance optimization. He occasionally speaks before major investment firms and institutional investors on ETFs, risk allocation/management, and the employment of artificial intelligence in the investment industry.
In addition to serving as a Trustee at his alma mater, he has been involved with the Greenwich Roundtable, the Economic Club of New York, as well as several philanthropic organizations, including the Advisory Board of Outward Bound; and, currently, as a ruling elder of The First Presbyterian Church of Greenwich. He is an avid sportsman and musician.
