We wanted to formally welcome the newest addition to the Alpha Architect team, Adam Tkaczuk, who joins us as Director of Portfolio Services.2016-09-15-09_50_27

Adam started off in physics, transitioning his quantitative skills to assist family offices, Fortune 100 firms and middle market companies reduce their tax exposure across their investments and business operations. Prior to joining Alpha Architect, Adam was the Northeast Practice Leader for Duff & Phelps’ Business Incentives Advisory practice in Manhattan. He earned his MBA from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, has a BS in physics from the University of Massachusetts and studied portfolio theory at the National University of Singapore.

Adam is passionate about our mission to empower investors through education and loves thinking about financial markets. He is also skilled in negotiating taxes with local municipalities, business tax planning, and tax-efficient investing. And as many of us know, tax management is (often) more important than alpha.

We are pleased that he has joined the team and look forward to hearing his tax- and investment-related insights.

Welcome Adam!
