NAAIM Announces Winner of “Shark Tank” Competition
The National Association of Active Investment Managers (NAAIM) has announced the winner of its annual “Shark Tank” competition, held during its Uncommon Knowledge Conference in San Diego, CA. Since 2013, this unique challenge has allowed NAAIM Members to gain exposure to innovative ideas employing active management strategies, possibly leading to new business relationships.
Theta Research is pleased to announce the 2017 Shark Tank Competition winner is Mr. Rich Paul of Potomac Advisors, Inc.

The EVO 1 Strategy’s actual track record has been independently verified by Theta Research back to its original inception date of June 1, 2002.
As we have noted in the past, Investment Managers competing in NAAIM’s Shark Tank competition receive exposure to a room full of Advisors, many of which are seeking viable sub-advisory relationships. It’s an opportunity to describe the Manager’s investment approach to the markets answer questions posed by an audience of seasoned professionals.
