Mark's mutual fund is launching December 15, 2011. He is a self taught private investor who operates the website Fund My Mutual Fund (http://fundmymutualfund.com); a daily mix of market, economic, and stock specific commentary. Fascinated by the market since an early age, he discovered mutual funds as a teenager in the 80s and moved to equities by the mid 90s. The origin of the website is/was to leverage the power of the internet in developing a transparent track record to attract investors for his potential "long/short" mutual fund. His equity focus is identifying secular growth trends and the companies most likely to benefit from these macro trends. Stocks are identified through fundamental analysis, although basic technical analysis is used in determining entry and exit points.

With a degree in economics from the University of Michigan, a broader understanding of the economy as a whole, along with interpreting investor psychology, is also a major interest for Mark.

I am a Founding Partner at Meritas Advisors where I serves as the firms' chief investment strategist. With over 20 years of experience in finance, strategic planning, risk management and asset valuation, my focus is primarily on macroeconomic influences and identification of those long-term trends that create investing headwinds or tailwinds. I am an investor, a perpetual student of economics and a relentless warrior for liberty. I am also a great lover of fine wines, tend to dance excessively (particularly while cooking), possess an excessive adoration of dogs, and an endless desire to find the humor in life.
I am the co-author of Cocktail Investing, published by Wiley and Sons in April 2016 and is available at the usual outlets such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. I am also the co-manager of the Growth Seeker Portfolio for TheStreet along with my co-author for Cocktail Investing, Chris Versace. I am a regular guest on various national and international television networks such as Fox News, Fox Business Network, One America News Network and RT, as well as having been featured multiple times on Real Vision Television. Every week I can be heard on national radio programs such as America's Morning News, frequently on international radio stations such as RTHK in Hong Kong, and am a regular speaker at conferences around the world where I discusses the markets, economics and politics. I am best known for my love of translating the complex world of global finance into Main Street concepts in terms that everyone understands with (hopefully!) contagious enthusiasm and an often irreverent sense of humor.
My career and my insatiable desire to learn have led me to a life of steady international travel. From this I have developed two home bases, one in sunny San Diego, California and the other in the indescribably beautiful town of Genoa, Italy which lies south of Milan, between Portofino and Monte Carlo on the Mediterranean Sea.
I’m a voracious reader and a confirmed geek, so I tend to pour through a lot of financial and economics books and periodicals. I actually think that studying economic theory and political history is fun. I know, I’m not a healthy person. I also read a section of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence every morning with my mandatory coffee as well as continually re-read the Federalist papers. Federalist 51 is still my hands down favorite. The Law by Bastiat may be one of the greatest books ever written. Friends have suggested therapy…
