COSTA MESA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–July 11, 2006–Brookstone Capital Inc. has hired Vincent M. Visoiu as its Senior FX Trader and Portfolio Manager to head up its new currency trading unit, BrookstoneFX LLC (“BFX”). Visoiu is a money manager with an extensive profitable track record and has joined BFX in order to expand and centralize his management operations. Working with a team of top economic and math Ph.D.s and programmers that specialize in the systematic trading of financial markets, Visoiu has created proprietary systems and technologies that are used by BFX.
Visoiu graduated as a Foreign Medical Doctor from Central America Health Science University in Belize with his medical residency work being done at the University of Miami Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami. He has also received a B.S. in business from Nova Southeastern University and an M.B.A. from Florida International University. He is Series 3 registered with the National Futures Association (NFA) and is a Chartered Portfolio Manager (CPM) with the American Academy of Financial Management.
Visoiu’s success is attributed to him having two careers requiring highly critical thinking, medicine and money management. His former role in medicine required him to rely heavily on acute analysis and objective tests to arrive at correct diagnosis for patients. Visoiu uses that same objective approach and analysis to trade the markets. This approach has resulted in the development of proprietary trading systems, including specific money management modules that have been used to successfully trade the futures markets as well as the FOREX markets. His interests in the markets focus heavily on portfolio diversification management as well as arbitrage spread trading between interrelated investment vehicles.
Dr. James DeMers, President of Brookstone Capital, stated: “We are delighted to welcome Vincent Visoiu to Brookstone. We are confident that Vincent’s years of profitable trading experience trading both the FX markets as well as the Commodity/Futures markets, together with his highly specialized approach to trading that has given him an edge in rapid market implementation and market performance, will significantly contribute to Brookstone Capital’s future expansion and success.”
