Aaron has worked in top tier investment banks and been published or quoted in many major newspapers, magazines, and financial journals including Risk magazine, the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times and Barron’s. He is well respected by his family, friends, colleagues, and clients on both personal and professional levels. He is highly driven and focused on succeeding, and also maintains the highest level of integrity in his endeavors. Aaron has a long track record of achievements both in academia and the investment business.
Aaron attended University of Florida where he earned bachelor’s degrees in mathematics and statistics, and then a master’s degree in applied mathematics. He joined the proprietary trading
desk at William R Hough and Co., a Florida investment bank, where he performed quantitative research on stock trading strategies. Inspired by the profitable application of mathematics to investing, Aaron returned to University of Florida to work on a PhD in mathematical finance.
After completing his PhD, Aaron joined JP Morgan in New York, working in their highly regarded risk management department. He soon transferred to London to work in research so that he could better leverage his previous experience. After helping to build their initial equity derivatives research product in Europe, he was recruited by Barclays Capital to create and run a global research platform for their equity business.
While building this platform, Aaron developed a personal interest in investing and became fascinated with many of the great investors of our time (eg, Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch, Sir John Templeton, etc). He noticed that most of them relied on a common strategy: value investing. Aaron enrolled in London Business School’s executive program for financial accounting and analysis to better his own knowledge in this area. He then started another research team at Barclays Capital focused on the development of value based investment strategies. Seeing the potential to offer these services directly to clients without inflated fees, Aaron decided to pursue this effort and established Aaron Brask Capital, LLC.

Wall Street Job Primer
Highlights - Industry overview in layman terms - Investment banks, money managers, hedge funds and the jobs within - Chapter 5 dedicated exclusively to quantitative roles in the industry - Strategies and insights for landing jobs and maximizing success (including compensation!) I wrote this book to help those
who aspire to or already work in the financial services industry. While my original intention was to help out aspiring quants (like myself a bit over 10 years ago), I have geared most all of the topics so that they will be helpful to anyone that is relatively new to the financial sector. Indeed, the content is presented in a manner that requires no prior knowledge. I have done my best to describe each topic from scratch and use examples/diagrams to illustrate many points. The first half of the book (three chapters) provides an introduction to capital markets and the financial institutions within. I start with an overview of these topics in the first chapter. Chapters two and three then describe investment banks (the sell-side) and the institutions that manage people's money (collectively known as the buy-side) in detail. The latter half of the book focuses more on the actual jobs within these financial institutions. Chapter four provides detailed descriptions (overview, career potential, key factors, pro & cons) for most of the typical roles. It also includes a job compatibility scoring system that should help individuals figure out which roles they are best suited for. Chapter five is dedicated to quants. It discusses who quants are, theory versus practice, essential quantitative concepts, and specific roles where quantitative skills are required or highly desired. Chapter six, the last chapter, provides a variety of useful tips and insights focused on landing the right job and then succeeding once you get your foot in the door. In the context of landing the right job, I discuss internships, advantages of advanced degrees, job searches, resumes and cover letters, follow-up, interview techniques, job offers, and more. I then discuss 'on the job' topics that will help you navigate the internal politics and move you along your career path. I give particular focus to what I label 'the fundamental theorem of the bonus system' which can help you maximize your compensation and promotion. Lastly I discuss strategies for career mobility since many people often might prefer jobs other than their own.
