John S. Lyons - Over 45 years experience managing investment portfolios
Mr. Lyons began his career in 1969 with a well-known Wall Street brokerage firm and during his initial five years in the business, two bear markets caused his clients and himself considerable anxiety. He became disenchanted with the lack of investing guidance he received from his employer and, as a result, he embarked on a campaign to educate himself on the dynamics and psychology of the markets. He realized that to simply "buy-and-hold" meant that a portfolio would eventually suffer damaging losses. His goal, therefore, was to identify methods of protecting his clients' investments from such losses and yet still be able to provide the returns that are available over time through equity investing.
Thus, in the mid to late 1970's, Mr. Lyons became a pioneer in the area of active management, working to develop methodologies for determining when market risk was appropriate for investing and when it was too great to be invested. The result was a multi-factor risk-assessing model that he began to utilize in March of 1978 and that, with minor adjusting, is still in use today. Its continued relevance is due to the fact that all of its input is derived from the stock market itself.
John Lyons is a graduate of Duke University.
