Ascendant Capital, LLC founder and CEO, Jeffry Schneider, has earned his reputation as one of the industry leaders of the alternative investment movement. His experience with alternative investing started out early in his career when he worked for Alex Brown in New York City. After working for that firm, he went on to spend time with Merrill Lynch, Smith Barney, CIBC Oppenheimer, and Paine Webber and his knowledge base expanded even more. Before founding Ascendant, he worked in the management teams of both Axiom Capital Management and Paradigm Global Advisors. With these companies, he connected hedge fund mangers with the right kinds of clients that they represented. He also helped advise investment managers on how to best build their investment vehicles.
On Jeffry Schneider’s social media accounts, you will find a spread of his business and personal interests represented. On his Twitter account, you can read Tweets that highlight some of the charitable causes he supports, events and happenings in his home town of Austin; Texas, and some of the business interests he has. His Facebook page has a more personal touch, and there he shares photos of him with different business partners as well as friends. On his Vimeo account you will find different travel tips, food tips, and a video to one of the half ironman challenges that Jeffry participated in. These competitions take him to places all around the world including Saint Croix, Chile, Croatia, the United States, and last but not least, New Zealand where the video takes place.
It is very well-known that Jeffry Schneider donates large amounts of his own capital to charitable causes. Among these organizations are Gods Love We Deliver, Wonders and Worries, Camp Honey Creek’s Summer Dream Program, the Cherokee Home for Children,the Gazelle Foundation, Mobile Loaves and Fishes, and Trinity Episcopal School of Austin. He supports many charities that help disadvantaged and poor children or those that suffer from neglect and abuse, but also donates to global charities that benefit third world countries who lack the most basic of necessities such as water. It is Jeffry’s hope that more people, over the years, will donate to charitable causes and organizations who help people that have difficulties helping themselves.
