Most likely a factor leading to his being promoted to vice president at the tender age of 26, the youngest in the firm at the time. Todd then went on to join Galleon Group as Managing Director of derivatives, where the fund grew from $500m to $6bn during the 3 years he was with Galleon...

While not enough to get crazy in the Hamptons yet, silver has incredible torque to outperform gold and based on this chart, we predict silver will hit $70 an ounce this cycle. Silver is a unique commodity with great diversification potential, protection against systematic financial failure, and extreme upside!...
