We are pleased to announce that Lindsey Woodward is our newest member of the Investment Committee. Prior to joining Abacus, Lindsey was an analyst with Dimensional Fund Advisors, supporting Abacus and our Investment Committee with analysis of the strategies that make up a significant portion of Abacus client portfolios. In her experience working for Dimensional, she developed a very broad understanding of investments and financial markets. Prior to working at Dimensional, she was with Thornburg Investment Management. She has a passion for seeking answers and solutions to investment challenges.
As of April 1st, Brent Kessel has stepped down from the Investment Committee to focus on his other duties within Abacus including his role as the CEO. Some of us on the Committee have had the pleasure of working closely with Brent since 2012, and he has been part of the Committee throughout all of Abacus’ history. We have learned a tremendous amount from Brent in this role, and know that he will continue to inform our thinking in the future.
Please join us in welcoming Lindsey to the Investment Committee and thanking Brent for his many years of service and guidance on the Committee.
