Jacob Gottlieb and Stuart Weisbrod they have worked separately for so long, but now they are under one roof. They have worked previously together, and that makes them conversant with each other. They worked together at Merlin BioMed Group, and now they have hopes that as they are sharing offices, then they will be able to help each other with the work. Because of all the experience that Stuart Weisbrod has it has enabled him to be able to build the necessary team. One of the members that was on the team includes Jacob Gottlieb who offered his services to Weisbrod as his portfolio manager that was in 2000. While at Merlin there were so many things that Jacob achieved during the biotechnology revolution and the achievement was that he assisted Merlin to gain returns of over 100 percent in the year of 1999 and 2000.
The returns were so of help to the company because it helped in gaining new clients, get pension funds, family offices, and for individuals, they earned high net worth. When he finished work at Merlin Jacob decided that it was time that he started his firm because he knew he was ready to take on something challenging. After putting a lot of work and determination in his company Visuim’s Business which he started with $300 million as the start capital, but after years it grew to 2.5 billion. The cash was so helpful because he even survived the financial crises in 2008, from that time then he oversaw the growth of the company to $8 billion, that employed 200 people and their offices were based in London, New York, and San Francisco.
After the company came to an end in 2016, though everything is not entirely settled Gottlieb in starting off in his next venture and that is Altium Capital. It will offer the same services as Visium, and that is the hedge fund which will be a good start for Jacob Gottlieb. The experience that he has in healthcare investment enabled the company to receive their first investment as 5.61% stake which was not a surprise to so many people.
