Christopher Versace is the Portfolio Manager of the Thematic Growth Portfolio at Fabian Wealth Strategies, as well as the editor of both the long-only "PowerTrend Profits" investment newsletter and "PowerTrader" trading service that utilizes strategies combining stocks, ETFs and options. Versace uses a proprietary thematic investing perspective that ties in economics, demographics, psychographics, technology and more to determine investment candidates, while also sidestepping companies vulnerable to thematic change.Expand

Versace is also the host of PowerTalk, a weekly podcast that features conversations with public and private management teams, as well as other thought leaders, for the benefit of both individual and institutional investors. These conversations aim to get behind the scenes with such guests as Steve Forbes, Donald Rumsfeld and the CEOs of Smith & Wesson and Cato, among others.

Versace was previously the portfolio manager of Agile Capital Management, which combined a hedged investment mandate and a thematic investing framework. He also previously served as senior vice president, equity research at Friedman Billings Ramsey, where he covered the mobile phone industry and component technologies. Versace was also an analyst at Donaldson Lufkin Jenrette, as well as Salomon Brothers.

Versace is a contributor to Forbes.com and a frequent guest on "Live from The Washington Times with Andy Parks," in addition to other radio and television programs. He earned bachelor's degrees in economics and mathematics from Fairfield University before earning an MBA in finance from Fordham University.Collapse
