Kenny Lissak – Performance Coach
Kenny Lissak is a Wall Street veteran, with over 20 years of successful buyside trading under his belt. No PhD, just real-life experience. As a Founding Partner of SAC, Kenny worked directly with Ari Kiev, the first Wall Street coach, teaching him the trading side of his psychological observations, so that theory could be turned into practical solutions. He later used the techniques they developed in his roles as Managing General Partner at Kadem Capital and Amtech Capital in New York.
Kenny is a practical, data-driven coach, ideally suited to traders, fund managers, and asset allocators who are ready to uncover the truth behind which aspects of their investment processes really work, identify impediments to success, and create repeatable, workable, professional solutions with measurable results.
Kenny is based in New York and coaches globally.
