Francesco Maggioni

Primary goal is capital protection. Then positive returns from investments or trading in stocks, futures, bonds and commodities. Quantitative approach for asymmetric results


Mr. Maggioni has been working in the financial markets for the last 15 years covering different roles and working in tier one consulting companies and banks worldwide.

In recent years his studies have been focused on the psycho-emotional aspects of trading and how those aspects have an impact on traders’ behavior and thus performances.

He also performed quantitative analysis and portfolio construction for several funds advised by the family office.

Prior to that he worked as an external consultant for KPMG Financial Services in the Milan office. In 2002 he has been hired by Ernst & Young LLP, San Francisco as an auditor for hedge funds, auditing large single funds and fund of funds.
