President of Kessler Investment Advisors, Inc.
Serves as President of Kessler Investment Advisors, Inc. specializing in sovereign debt, repo, and futures, and in modeling short and long term strategies in these markets. Since joining Kessler in 2001 he has created the mathematical models that form the basis of Kessler’s proprietary indices and various long and long-short investment strategies, and established the companies’ current daily portfolio valuation system. With an orientation consistent with long term investment management rather than the daily win-lose focus common to bond traders, Mr. Hickman’s research quantifies the underlying Kessler risk-mitigation philosophy in the realm of virtually perfect credit and related futures. He focuses on statistical correlation of research on economic and market trends with returns on assets responsive to macroeconomic forces, within risk limitations defined by a broad range of metrics in order to form the companies’ basis for objective market calls. He is the author of the whitepaper, Investment Performance in Relationship to Holding Period Length. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from the University of Colorado.
