Alex Koyfman

Born in Soviet Russia, Alex immigrated to the US with his family in the early 1980s. He holds a bachelor's degree from the University of Maryland, and a JD from Penn State.

His interest in finance and investing began at an early age, and he was trading actively by his late teens — taking advantage of the rapidly developing opportunities online trading gave non-profession investors. His earliest successes include a very risky but ultimately highly lucrative purchase of Worldcom shares as panic sent the stock plummeting to below $1.

After lawschool, Alex made the decision to give up a promising future in the legal industry, and turned to trading and investing full time — including an increased focus on both early stage public equity, and startup stage private equity investing.

In the fall of 2014, longtime friend and colleague Brian Hicks persuaded Alex to start the now flourishing Microcap Insider investment advisory — a newsletter which profiles the best and most prospective technology and resource companies trading today.

His scientific approach, and statistical de-risking methods have helped build a strong, fast-moving, high-averaging portfolio which handily out-performs any hedge fund in operation today.
