Steve Koomar has over 30 years of experience in the financial industry. He’s one of Frank’s most popular Wall Street Unplugged guests, known for his unique (and usually spot-on) views on macro trends, including world trade, economies, interest rates, and inflation.
At Goldman Sachs, Steve specialized in derivatives, Japanese bond trading, and global proprietary trading. As the international fixed income portfolio manager for Prudential Investment Management, he managed fixed income investments and foreign exchange risk in every major global market.
Steve later served as a portfolio manager for a large hedge fund and consulted in insurance products and distressed residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS).
Today, Steve manages a farmland real estate investment trust (REIT) and consults for a private oilfield services company. He’s also editor and publisher of Vigilante Investor, a newsletter that integrates geopolitics, economics, and security analysis to identify the compelling investment opportunities of our day.
