Jeffry Schneider, the Founder, and CEO of Ascendant Capital LLC is a model of success and generosity. His hard work and perseverance has not only led Ascendant to the heights of success, as a billion dollar company but has also helped countless other people in the process. Before Jeffry created Ascendant, he worked at Paradigm Global Advisors and Axiom Capital Management. He also worked with Smith Barney, Alex Brown, and Merrill Lynch. These experiences combined with his own perspective taught him the many things he would need to know to get Ascendant off of the ground.
Being a boutique alternative investment firm with global capabilities, Ascendant offers a variety of services including education, sales and operational services, marketing, and unique approaches for financial structuring. By distributing private and public offerings around the world, the company is able to work with Registered Investment Advisors, Private Banks, broker-dealers, and Family Offices. Growing from a company with just two employees to one that has more than thirty, Jeffry leads his team who work with over fifty broker-dealers, numerous family offices, and 250 investment advisors. Ascendant Capital is looking to raise nearly $50 million on a monthly basis soon and they have no plans at just stopping there.
As a philanthropist, Jeffry donates his time and money to many different causes, and one of these that is near and dear to him is the Gazelle Foundation. This foundation helps improve the quality of life for people in Burundi, Africa by giving them access to clean water by constructing water systems. To this day, more than $1.3 million, overall, has been donated that helps build clean water systems in Burundi, and the foundation hopes to continue. The water doesn’t only benefit the general population but also helps build up infrastructures like churches, medical facilities, and schools. Everyone benefits from what this foundation has to offer and Jeffry is a proud donor.
