We will only take questions at the end of the presentation to make sure it stays focused and on time. This session will be kept to 45 minutes including questions.
About Erik Townsend
Erik Townsend is a retired software entrepreneur turned hedge fund manager.
A teenage computer protégé, he spent most of his high school years at MIT’s Artificial Intelligence laboratory, where he taught himself several computer programming languages. Erik became an independent software development and design consultant to Digital Corporation’s manufacturing systems technology group at age 17. By the mid-1980s, Erik had invented an approach to distributed system design that is now widely known as Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA).
In 1992 Erik founded the Cushing Group, a boutique consultancy focused exclusively on bringing advanced distributed application computing technologies to market. The Cushing Group’s work with Wells Fargo Bank in the early 1990s paved the way for Wells Fargo to become the world’s first Internet Bank by early 1995.
Erik has actively traded energy, grains, and precious metals futures markets since 2008, and in 2013 founded Fourth Turning Capital Management, LLC and launched a Global Macro-strategy hedge fund.
In February 2016, Erik launched Macro Voices, a popular financial podcast program which targets professional finance, high net worth, and other “sophisticated” investors.
