Michael Krause  

Prior to founding AltaVista in early 2004, Mr. Krause worked at UBS in New York, where he developed and published Global Profit Picture — the first attempt by any major Wall Street firm to measure and dissect corporate profitability worldwide. Michael also produced and enhanced the industry-leading publication focusing on S&P 500 earnings, Profit Picture Monthly. It was during this time that he developed expertise in analyzing indices which he now applies to the world of ETFs.
