Located in New Haven, Connecticut, Yale Law School is one of the world’s premier law schools. It offers an unmatched environment of excellence and educational intimacy in the form of world renowned faculty, small classes, limitless opportunities for clinical training, and strong encouragement of public service. The Law School is small by design; its impact on the world is measured by its accomplished graduates and its ongoing scholarship and outreach through numerous centers and projects. For students, the experience is unparalleled. The faculty-student ratio supports a vast array of courses and opportunities for independent research and student-organized seminars. Students get practical training by representing real clients in clinics starting in their first year. Throughout, a spirit of collaboration reigns. All first-term courses are ungraded, and subsequent classes are graded honors/pass/low pass. Yale Law School is unique among law schools in that it produces leaders in all walks of life: distinguished deans and faculty members at law schools across the country and the world; industry CEOs and corporate counsels; founders of nongovernmental organizations and other nonprofit entities; entrepreneurs; government servants in federal, state, and local offices and the judiciary--just a few areas in which our alumni's talent and passion and dedication have made a difference. Among the School’s graduates are U.S. Presidents and Supreme Court Justices; and among its far-reaching projects, the Information Society Project and the China Center.

Career History
Chief Investment Officer
2013 - Current

TCA UK is an active, research-driven, probabilistic manager which follows a team-oriented investment approach and a distributed decision-making process. The firm constructs relatively concentrated portfolios on a bottom-up basis using fundamental and risk/reward analysis. The co-portfolio managers size positions and make investment decisions for the funds. The firm utilizes probabilistic investing and focuses on companies undergoing change to their business or capital structures. They employ fundamental, legal and regulatory analyses to identify misperceptions and mispricings with the potential to lead to outsized returns on capital. The funds also include fundamental deep-value investments that typically have a soft catalyst. The Opportunity Fund invests in merger arbitrage, special situations, distressed and capital structure arbitrage. The funds typically have a long bias and the firm actively manages the potential downside risk of the overall portfolio. Individual positions with offsetting short hedges are implemented when appropriate.The firm's hedging philosophy aims to limit losses and preserve capital during severe market dislocations. Macro portfolio hedges are the primary method of protecting against portfolio tail risk. The firm searches for inexpensive volatility in an effort to build a diversified portfolio of hedges with the goal of limiting overall portfolio risk. The risk management and portfolio management teams are separate and distinct, providing appropriate checks and balances. The Co-Portfolio Managers shape the portfolio on a regular basis with respect to factor risks. The portfolio is manually stress tested and stress test results and factor risk analyses are reviewed by the full risk management team at regular risk meetings. If the stress test yields an expected loss greater than 10%, the portfolio is adjusted and/or portfolio hedges are increased.
