Jacob Gottlieb is a man that thrives on taking risks. It is this ability that helps him to be the businessman he is today. Gottlieb has run many businesses since childhood. He was once a young entrepreneur selling baseball cards, supplying cold drinks on golf courses and even tried his hand at selling groceries. In the present day, Jacob’s entrepreneurship skills shine brighter. He founded and still works at Visium Asset Management LLC. He also trades in Wall Street. Besides business and trading, Jacob’s portfolio also boasts of him being a mentor to other professionals and a charity enthusiast.
Visium shines at work from the magic fingers of Jacob Gottlieb and is the largest healthcare hedge fund in America. Visium is a company he helped to establish, and it represents Jacob’s love for medicine and trade. What seems like a weird combination is not something that Jacob unknowingly entered. He shares the passion of medicine from his mother, a pediatrician, and trade from his father, a professor of economics. Jacob thinks that the two professions are alike and sync flawlessly with attributes such as risk management.
