Eduardo Gonzalez is a graduate of the prestigious Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics and Business Administration from the University in 1997. Among the many skills mastered in his undergraduate education was the ability to carefully analyze market trends. This skill has allowed him to pinpoint emerging market opportunities, helping the portfolios he manages to grow beyond expectation.
In his first professional role after graduation from Carnegie Mellon, Mr. Gonzalez served as a quantitative consultant for Factset Research Systems. His work in building predictive ranking models as the leader of an analysis team was met with almost immediate success; his models propelled a 25% growth in sales and gave Factset the ability to expand its operational footprint into Europe.
His next leadership role came with Invesco in Houston, Texas. As part of an equity fund management team, Eduardo was responsible for guiding the team’s efforts in managing a $500 million multi-cap equity fund. Here, he put his market and fund analysis skills to the test, and his work again paid off; the fund’s Morningstar rank rose in one year from the 92nd percentile to the 20th.
Eduardo Gonzalez continued to amass skills and professional certifications in his career. He believed that as a leader, he must continually improve himself and encourage others to do so as well. In 2003, Mr. Gonzalez was awarded the designation of Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA).
In 2014, he was recognized as a Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst (CAIA).

At both Invesco and in his work with the firm Deutsche Asset and Wealth Management in New York City, Mr. Gonzalez developed proprietary stock selection models with ESG principles at their core. Through continual modeling and testing, his leadership in portfolio growth was recognized by his firm.
