He holds an MBA from Fordham Gabelli School of Business and has co-authored a book called “Cocktail Investing - Distilling Everyday Noise into Clear Investing Signals for Better Returns.”
With a passion for teaching others about investing, Versace spent 9 years as an Assistant Professor of Finance at NJCU School of Business.
