Jacob Gottlieb has a vast experience in the world of business with an interest in the healthcare sector. He began his career at Merlin BioMed Group where he met other like-minded individuals like Stuart Weisbrod who was the co-founder of that company. On his part, Jacob Gottlieb worked as a portfolio manager where he played a vital role in the field of biotechnology. With his contribution, the company managed to achieve outstanding returns which exceeded their expectations as they were above a hundred percent. After Merlin BioMed Group closed down, Jacob Gottlieb started his own company known as Visium Asset Management which is healthcare hedge fund. Unfortunately, the company got involved in a scandal in 2016 which affected his business, but for him, he was not affected legally as he was not included. Before establishing his company, he became a partner at Balysany Asset Management where he increased his experience in this field of business.
After the scandal, Jacob Gottlieb met again with Stuart Weisbrod with whom they started working together on another similar project in asset management. The fact that the two are experienced in this field means that they will bring a revolution in the financial and business sector. This is putting into consideration that they have learned from their previous mistakes and the losses they have incurred in the past from their first businesses. Altium Capital is the new brainchild of the two knowledgeable entrepreneurs which is also a hedge fund. The fact that the company has partnered with reliable companies in the health sector such as Oramed Pharmaceuticals means that it means business in taking over the healthcare industry. The fact that this firm deals with products that interest Jacob Gottlieb mean that it is strategically placed to take his new company to the next level. He is as well a risk taker as he invested in a drug that was yet to get approval from FDA with the hope that it would be approved. In that case, his optimism could be said to have contributed towards his business ventures as one is never sure of the eventualities upon investing.
