New position adds a unique, dynamic perspective to Krilogy’s investment platform
Krilogy® a St. Louis-based wealth management firm with nearly $2 billion in assets, has added Jamie Saettele in the new position of Director of Technical Research.
In finance, technical research is the study of market action and pricing trends. Recognizing that there are historic patterns in market trading, technical analysts work to identify trends in their early stages in order to invest at the most advantageous time to deliver optimized returns. This is a discipline that very few firms include as a part of their investment process. Jamie’s experience and expertise in technical analysis provides the opportunity to complement Krilogy’s existing fundamental and quantitative analysis.
“At Krilogy®, we are always looking ahead to determine what will continue to add value and improve outcomes for our clients that trust in us to be great stewards of their wealth,” said John McArthur, Partner and Chief Investment Officer. “Jamie’s deep knowledge and focus on technical research enhances our traditional quantitative approach to our portfolio management process and provides clients with a dynamic perspective they may not experience elsewhere. With current economic and market conditions, we anticipate that market returns will be harder to come by and that alpha generation, as opposed to general market risk, will once again become increasingly important. Jamie’s insight and experience should help us deliver better risk-adjusted returns for our clients in this environment.”
Since its founding in 2009, Krilogy® has committed to investing in building its team and adding services to care holistically for clients’ financial well-being. In recent years, Krilogy® Tax was established to develop tax-friendly investment strategies and manage clients’ tax returns, Krilogy® Law launched to develop clients’ estate plans, and (K) Plans was formed to support employer-sponsored retirement plans. The firm now offers the most comprehensive set of wealth management services to ensure that all parts of a client’s financial picture are included in their plan. The team has grown to include professionals who offer a tremendous depth of skill and perspective, often in specialized areas, that allow Krilogy® clients access to well-rounded information to make financial decisions.
“Krilogy® is unique in the financial services industry because of its willingness to incorporate new services, technologies and perspectives to best serve clients,” said Saettele. “This is impressive in an industry that can be quite traditional. Krilogy’s commitment to innovation paved the way for rapid, deliberate growth which, in turn, creates opportunity for clients and team members alike. It is an environment I knew I wanted to be part of. Joining the team was a decision that came quite naturally, and I am very happy to contribute to our culture, teamwork, and relentless focus on clients’ financial wellbeing.”
A 2004 graduate of Bucknell University, Saettele has served as Technical Strategist for DailyFX, and later co-founded SB Trade Desk, a research service firm focused on the foreign exchange market. Before joining Krilogy, he was a Senior Technical Strategist at Scandinavian Capital Markets.
