Biography

Lee Slonimsky, who started trading stocks in high school, is the manager of New York City based Ocean Partners LP, a long/short equity fund that began in 1999 and now has investors from a number of US states as well as India, Ireland, Taiwan, and the UK. 

Mr Slonimsky’s background in socially responsible investing (“SRI”) led him to partner with Dave Castillo, the CEO of Native Home Capital, a Phoenix based CDFI, in the creation of Next Era Capital Partners LLC, which is believed to be the first majority Native American owned hedge fund in the US.

The first year spent in construction of the fund has led to a grasp of the enormous potential for Reservation based economic development and finance through building relationships with a global hedge fund industry that has a more supportive regulatory and cultural perspective on Indian Country than traditional mainstream US banking does.

More broadly, Mr. Slonimsky’s investment approach involves a combination of traditional analysis and quantitative research into the way an individual stock’s price moves.  Born into a family in which his father’s first job was as a messenger on Wall Street in August of 1929, he has done extensive modeling of risk reduction and risk avoidance strategies and successfully implemented them in the face of two massive market declines, 2000 and 2008.
