Global Trust Group and Global Key Advisors President and Chairman Robert M. Sigler states: “Our exceptional team has emerged from a lifetime of accounting, portfolio management, investment banking, private equity, venture, and quantitative market analysis.  We and our clients have been disappointed with of the state of modern markets and investment services. Global Key Advisors has been developing practices and solutions built on innovation and solid research to address these issues in serving institutions and family offices seeking quality.”

“Many traditional mainstays of investment management have changed to the point of no longer functioning as intended. Domestic and international market conditions have evolved to where tier one firms offer unclear value with resulting losses of brand equity and human capital. In our own work products we have quantitatively tracked a striking migration of top Wall Street talent toward smaller firms and private boutique models.  The advent of high-frequency trading – which we began to identify, measure, and counter several years ago in our strategies – has made it increasingly difficult for most asset managers to add value.  Consistently creating value is an art and a science requiring constant quantitative and fundamental analysis. With sovereign and corporate debt a less attractive counterweight to equities today, investors need alternatives more than ever.  We are excited to have Josh on board to help lead our efforts toward this end.”
