Adam Apt

...
Adam Apt, (PhD, Oxford University)
Dr. Adam Apt is the founder and owner of Peabody River Asset Management, a small investment advising company.
Adam received his doctorate in history from Oxford University. As a graduate student, he decided not to pursue an academic career. His reasons were varied but among them was his dislike of the need to balance his research with both teaching and an almost constant job search.
After completing his doctorate, Adam earned an MBA from the University of Chicago. Fascinated by the economic theory of investments, he went into the investment management profession and later worked at two startup internet investment management companies before moving on to found his own company, Peabody River Asset Management, in 2007.
Adam says that his doctorate in history "fostered a form of critical and analytical thinking that has been very valuable" in a business environment. The study of history, he notes, "encourages a tendency to find the larger historical context for business evaluations and decisions and to appreciate that the future will not be a simplistic projection of the present."
Because so much of business consists of presenting information and arguments to clients and colleagues and persuading them to adopt a particular view, Adam reports that teaching skills are highly valued by employers. Outside of his business offices, Adam also teaches classes for financial professionals, a task he enjoys as it enables him to improve his skills as a presenter. As he develops and expands his own company, Adam continues to draw on and use his skills as a teacher and researcher.
Leaving academia has enabled Adam to maintain multiple pursuits in his personal and professional life. Living in Boston provides him with access to some of the nation's best archives and research libraries. Proximity to these resources allows Adam to publish book reviews, contribute to different reference works and, more simply, read widely within his field.
