Jacob Gottlieb has endured a fair amount of obstacles during his career. However, he is fortunate to be working with an old teammate from his successful beginnings. Stuart Weisbrod was a mentor to Jacob Gottlieb when the two men worked at Merlin Biomed Group. Stuart Weisbrod is co-founder of Merlin and used Gottlieb as a portfolio manager in the year 2000. Gottlieb credits Weisbrod’s management style with providing him with the template to conduct business as he moved forward in his career. Jacob Gottlieb made a great amount of contributions to Merlin before the company closed for business in 2007.
Jacob Gottlieb had great success on his own. He launched Visium Asset Management with a $300 million dollar investment. The company’s net worth quickly rose to 2.5 billion. Visum flourished despite the financial crisis that took down several other organizations of its kind over a 10-year period. It had become an 8 billion dollar hedge fund. The company held offices in New York, San Francisco and London. The staff featured well over 200 employees.
Visium hit a wall when several of its high-ranking members were accused of inappropriate conduct. The information was provided to the FBI by an informant working on the inside of the company. Charges were brought against the accused. However, Jacob Gottlieb himself was never suspected of any unethical practices.
Jacob Gottlieb remained at Visium while the company was being investigated. He held the title of CEO and has stayed on to wind down the organization and return funds to investors.
David Gottlieb launched Altium Capital as his next business enterprise. Altium Capital has come out of the gates with a great deal of success due to Gottlieb’s reputation in the industry. He has chosen to invest in healthcare systems. The company has already taken a stake in Oramed Pharmaceuticals Inc. Oramed is a cutting-edge healthcare provider that will save millions of lives in the future.
