Randy Swan

Founder, Pres­i­dent and Lead Port­fo­lio Man­ag­er of Swan Glob­al Invest­ments

Randy Swan, CPA is the founder, Pres­i­dent and Lead Port­fo­lio Man­ag­er of Swan Glob­al Invest­ments and the cre­ator of the pro­pri­etary Defined Risk Strat­e­gy (DRS).

In 1997, rec­og­niz­ing the lim­i­ta­tions of Mod­ern Port­fo­lio The­o­ry and the dif­fi­cul­ty of mar­ket tim­ing and pick­ing stocks, Randy devel­oped the Swan Defined Risk Strat­e­gy to help investors achieve cap­i­tal appre­ci­a­tion while seek­ing pro­tec­tion from large loss­es.

As Lead Port­fo­lio Man­ag­er of Swan and the DRS, Randy over­sees and man­ages the strat­e­gy across numer­ous prod­uct port­fo­lios and asset class­es such as large cap stocks, emerg­ing mar­ket stocks, for­eign devel­oped stocks, small cap stocks, long-term bonds, gold, and more. Across each product/portfolio, the DRS strat­e­gy seeks to define the risk, reduce volatil­i­ty, lim­it large loss­es and match or exceed the long-term per­for­mance of the stock mar­ket over an entire invest­ment cycle (peak to trough).  This is all from the per­spec­tive of help­ing investors to achieve a more con­sis­tent and smoother longer term invest­ment expe­ri­ence.
Before found­ing Swan, Randy was a senior man­ag­er for KPMG’s Finan­cial Ser­vices Group, pri­mar­i­ly work­ing with risk man­age­ment and insur­ance providers. His expe­ri­ence at KPMG helped him in design­ing the DRS, as he was able to see first­hand how insur­ance and risk man­agers dimin­ished risk.  What fol­lowed was his dis­cov­ery and pur­suit of effec­tive­ly using options as an invest­ment vehi­cle to dimin­ish and hedge risk. The DRS uses equi­ties and options to define a par­tic­u­lar risk/reward struc­ture in port­fo­lio man­age­ment, thus seek­ing to mit­i­gate large risks in port­fo­lios and mar­kets.
Randy has been fea­tured in pub­li­ca­tions by Barron’s, The Wall Street Jour­nal, Forbes, Morn­ingstar, Investors Busi­ness Dai­ly, and more.  He has also been a fre­quent speak­er at indus­try con­fer­ences includ­ing the Options Indus­try Council’s Wealth Sum­mit and the Alter­na­tive Invest­ment Sum­mit.  Addi­tion­al­ly, he serves on the Advi­so­ry Lead­er­ship Coun­cil of the Options Indus­try Coun­cil (OIC), an ini­tia­tive designed to sup­port edu­ca­tion with­in the finan­cial advi­sor chan­nel, specif­i­cal­ly focused on advanc­ing the aware­ness and use of options in build­ing a supe­ri­or port­fo­lio.
Randy is a 1990 grad­u­ate of the Uni­ver­si­ty of Texas with a master’s degree in pro­fes­sion­al account­ing.
