Michael Nazwaski, CFA – Portfolio Manager, Head of Trading
“I have known Mike for about 20 years. He was a customer of mine in my former life as a banker. We were catching up with a mutual friend a couple of years ago and Mike shared his role at Inukshuk Capital Management. It was not a sales pitch. just an honest description of the job he and the ﬁrm were doing. Several months later, I decided I needed to make some big changes in my own ﬁnancial management. I reached out to Mike because of his integrity, dedication and market acumen to see if I might be able to start a relationship with the ﬁrm. I met the rest of the team shortly after that and started opening accounts. I now sleep better at night because I know Mike is working for me!”
