Bondurant Investment Advisory ("BIA") was founded by Scott Bondurant, a former Managing Director & Global Head of Long/Short Strategies at UBS Global Asset Management, where he was responsible for leading the development, implementation, and marketing of the $2.5 billion equity long/short platform from 2005-2014. Over the last seven years, Scott has been an Adjunct Professor at Northwestern University teaching "The History of Investing," worked as a Principal at Unearthed Land Technologies – a digital real estate records start-up, and served as President of the American Platform Tennis Association.
Over the years Scott observed that most high net worth individuals (including his former self) have not prepared a comprehensive financial plan to meet their future needs and goals. Over the course of his career, he realized that behavioral biases steered both institutional and individual investor portfolios towards a focus on the short term, at the expense of maximizing long term returns. Bondurant Investment Advisory was founded with the purpose of helping clients develop robust financial plans incorporating our proprietary investment approach to meet their lifetime goals.
Bondurant Investment Advisory is uniquely positioned to provide empirically backed institutional quality solutions designed to fit the individual needs and goals of each client.
