Adam Rodman, One Of Forbes’ “30 Under 30”: Contrarian In A Consensus World

Updated on

Adam Rodman is the Founder, CIO and Portfolio Manager of Segra Capital Management which runs a global opportunistic hedge fund focused on thematic investments in the emerging and underfollowed markets. Before launching Segra in June 2013, Adam was a partner and senior investment committee member at Corriente Advisors.  In 2014, Forbes Magazine picked him as one of the “30 under 30 in Finance”. Mark L. Hart III, Founder and CIO of Corriente Advisors, provided Segra’s initial seed capital. Segra is also supported by an advisory board of industry veterans and has best in class service providers.

“Fundamental Macro”: in layering a top-down approach over a fundamental bias, Adam follows a theme-based, fundamental and catalyst-driven research process incorporating bottoms-up security-level analysis coupled with thematic macro overlays. Investing long and short with cross-asset flexibility based on relative, cross-economy business and trade cycle dynamics, Segra aims to  achieve absolute rates of return in various market environments. Rooted in his successful track record at Corriente is Adam’s contrarian bias where he attempts to capture contrarian pivot points, often by exploiting mispriced volatility. Historically, Segra Capital has maintained an equity and credit bias.
