Welcome to Rosenthal Capital Management, LLC

“We are always mining for edge. That’s why we continually enhance our computer technology and maintain a constant quest to increase our accuracy rate…”

— Bret Rosenthal

OUR MISSION

Employ proprietary institutional-quality investment algorithms to preserve capital while still capturing the upside.

OUR MOTIVATION

Algorithms are the edge in today’s investing landscape. For the past five years we’ve put in the time, resources and effort to build dynamic volatility enhanced algorithms so that individual investors can benefit from a system that garners equal to or greater than “buy & hope” strategies with less draw.

OUR DESIRE

We enjoy working one-on-one with clients. During the 80s-00s in New York City we built the largest private client equity business at Lehman Bros and Prudential (Wachovia/Wells Fargo) by bringing institutional information to individual investors.

At the time, powerful proprietary fundamental information was the key edge on Wall St. We met with an average of three (3) CEOs/management teams per week to gather information about companies in which we were interested in investing. We then immediately shared this informative edge with our clients.

Success led us to Florida where we launched a family office managing our own family assets plus those of some of our favorite New York City relationships.

Now, we are opening our doors again and accepting new clients. Why? Because we see the same opportunity to level the playing field between institutional and individual access to valuable information.

Institutions have access to investing algorithms and platforms that are not made available to individual investors. We enjoy providing the cudgel individuals need to survive, which is why we’re sharing our proprietary technology and algorithmic information.

OUR HISTORY

We have each individually been investing in financial instruments for 30+ years. Over this extended period of time we have built up a treasure trove of knowledge. We’ve employed all manner of equity trading and investing approaches from traditional long-term investing strategies to stock market day-trading activities. This experience helped us develop our lucrative brand of capital management. [Meet the Rosenthal Capital Management crew.]

OUR APPROACH

Our investing platform is a top-down approach and works as follows…

1. ACTIVATE ALGORITHMS

Employ our volatility specific Long-only intermediate-term Algorithms.

We apply these to each of the Big Three indices and will be investing in the following ETFs:

◊ S&P500 (SPY)  ◊  NASD100 (QQQ)  ◊  Russel SmallCap600 (IWM)

2. APPLY HEDGES

Deploy our volatility specific intra-day Hedging Algorithms.

We apply these strategies on the Big Three as needed to protect principal and reduce draw even further.

3. IDENTIFY GROUP ETFs

Once direction has been determined by the Big Three we look to position group ETFs.

We choose the groups our fundamental research department feels are most relevant to an investor’s portfolio.

Our algorithms (specifically designed for each group ETF) then direct our investment dollars.

4. DEPLOY CAPITAL

We now know market direction and Group strength so we begin to deploy capital.

We place assets into individual equities based on fundamental information gathered by our research department.

NOTE

Important: Unlike other investment advisors a significant portion of our capital under management  is our own. Everything you will see, read and watch on this web site impacts our personal capital directly. Investing is not a game to us nor a hobby but instead a passion and a war. For those who are interested (and who we feel are qualified to join us) we offer partnership access to an individual managed account through our affiliation with Interactive Brokers.

Meet the Crew

& join us -- we're family, literally (three of us, anyway)!

Bret Rosenthal

Principal, Head Trader

Bret began his career in the late 1980’s in New York City with Lehman Brothers and moved on to Prudential Securities/Wachovia. During this time he mentored under the watchful eye of his father, Gary Rosenthal, with whom he still works today. The Rosenthal Group managed one of the most successful private client businesses in the country at all three firms, the history of which was chronicled in R.J. Shook’s book, The Winner’s Circle. Bret’s stock trading approach was highlighted in Steve Cawiezell’s book, Expert Trading Systems: Successful Traders Share Their Secrets. 

Bret began building stock trading systems in the late 1990’s. In 2001 he implemented his first successful algorithmic system throughout the Rosenthal Group’s client structure: P.A.C.E. (Proprietary Analyses and Computer Enhancement). While the intervening years have seen the acronym change and the employed tools be exceedingly enhanced, the core of that system lives on in the strategies and systems of today’s Rosenthal Capital Management.

In 2005, Bret and Gary started their own firm, Rosenthal Capital Management, LLC, located in Jupiter, Florida (Palm Beach County).

Listen to Bret describe his professional day trading, swing trading and stock market investing history and current approach in this interview by Steven Cawiezell, host of the Secrets of Successful Trading Systems Podcast.
