Jeff Yastine boasts over two decades experience in financial matters. Prior to joining Banyan Hill Publishing in 2015, he worked as assistant portfolio manager for Bankers Trust. This was the first job in his career. He later moved Deutsche Bank then to ING where he left a legacy for building and managing multibillion-dollar businesses.
Jeff later shifted to Kinetics Asset Management, under his tenure the assets of the hedge fund increased from $6 to $25 billion making the firm the best performing hedge fund manager in the world. This earned him a chance to participate in Templeton Foundation investment challenge. It was during this time that the world was experiencing the financial crisis. Despite the turbulent financial times, Jeff was able to raise the proceeds of the competition from $50 million to 88 million within two years. Though he was really performing well in uplifting the profits of the companies he had worked for, Jeff Yastine realized that his decades of experiences was only benefiting a small portion of individuals. This prompted him to become a financial journalist where he felt he could impart his financial know-how to a wider and deserving audience.
As an editorial director of Banyan Hill Publishing, Jeff is tasked with the responsibility to creating new products and resources that will make members of the company independent. To meet his mandate, Jeff has been authoring articles that are most inclined to his niche. In one of his recent stories, he talks about cyber attacks. In his view many companies often fail to adopt cybersecurity mechanisms that will prevent them from hackers, until they are hacked, that is the point they realize the importance of having a strong cybersecurity strategy beforehand. Jeff gives an example of shipping companies that ignored CyberKeel’s call for cybersecurity investment. Most of these companies fell into the traps of hackers; that is when they were forced to make cybersecurity investment part of their operations.
Jeff Yastine also contributes regularly Sovereign Investor Daily and Winning Investor Daily. Besides, he uses his social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to share information on financial matters.
