Editor of Alpha Investor
Managing Partner of CGM Partners Fund LP.
Charles Mizrahi began on the trading floor of the New York Futures Exchange at the age of 20.
Not long after that, he moved on to become a wildly successful money manager. Charles was ranked the No. 1-performing market timer — not just on Wall Street but in the entire United States — based on the actual performance of client accounts. Barron’s also ranked Charles as the No. 1 commodity trading adviser.
He has more than 37 years of experience recommending stocks under his belt, and he’s seen all that the market can throw at an investor. He made money as a pro trader during the go-go ’80s and avoided the 1987 crash. Charles also invested through the booming 1990s, dot-com bubble and bust, housing bubble, 2008 financial recession and the strong bull market that followed.
During that time, Wall Street powerhouses came running to him for advice. Because of that, Charles has managed money for everyone from close family members and business owners to Wall Street’s top investment banks.
Charles experienced all the ups and downs of the market as a trader, money manager, hedge fund manager and a manager of his own personal wealth.
He taught investing at New York University’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies. He was also the founding editor of Park Avenue Investment Club and editor of the Insider Alert advisory services, which provided readers with insight and knowledge that benefited them in the long run.
He’s been featured in The Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, The New York Times and MarketWatch, and made TV appearances on CNBC.
Charles’ dedication to providing readers with information that will take their portfolios to the next level led him to write his highly acclaimed book, Getting Started in Value Investing (Wiley). It’s also why he launched the Alpha Investor and 8-Figure Fortunes trading services at Banyan Hill Publishing, and why he publishes a weekly article for Winning Investor Daily.
