With a history of excellence, he has always helped to guide the companies he has worked for towards success and profit. As an agent for Merrill Lynch, Alex Brown, and Smith Barney, he learned plenty about the alternative investments industry while benefiting each company. Now with over 24 years of experience in the financial services industry, many people consider him a top source for alternative investment information. It is no wonder that they do, either, because he has managed to raise over $1 billion at Ascendant, which has benefited the numerous broker dealers, family offices, and investment advisors that he has worked with.
Jeffry Schneider believes you are only as good as you give, and as a supporter of many different charities, he knows the true meaning of helping others. One of his favorite charitable causes is the Gazelle Foundation, which is an organization that constructs clean water systems for the people of Burundi, East Africa. The cause has raised over $1.3 million and the water helps the general population as well as churches, schools, and medical facilities. It has not only kept many people from suffering from illness and disease, but it has transformed their lives so they can pursue more of the things they want to do rather than simply scraping by and merely surviving.
As a health enthusiast, Jeffry Schneider travels the world to participate in half ironman challenges. These competitions have taken him to places all over the globe, such as, Saint Croix, New Zealand, Croatia, Chile, and many states in the U.S.A. He also researches nutrition and healthy eating on a regular basis, and the people that work for him at Ascendant have benefited from his interest, because he makes sure that every team member always has access to healthy food options.
