Graceful Grady (Founder of Uptrend Asset Management) displays a unique and fun timeline from being a self proclaimed child prodigy to leading Uptrend Asset Management, an alternative investment firm. We focus our success on utilizing an opportunistic, equity long/short strategy. Our slogan is, "we have the edge in hedge" and we intend to do this by capitalizing on trends and events. We are not looking to be a "market trends and events" type firm but more of the true sense of the words "trends and events" with sustainability. They say style resurfaces about every 20 years; we consider our style the Peter Lynch theory of the general public. Our investment philosophy involves disciplined, fundamental, opportunistic, and research oriented investing.
