Penta Capital is the summation of a decade of independent market analysis, graduate coursework in financial engineering, and blogging. As an industry outsider, we realized that there were two problems with the traditional fund management model: Under-performance and lack of accessibility. Experience taught us that the primary driver of underperformance was human emotional bias and different market techniques deserved evolving weighting through the investment cycle. Also, investors’ concerns with fees, fund accessibility, and transparency were not addressed. Hence, we created our proprietary investment schema in 2015 combining multiple analysis techniques through a quant layer, and a SMA model to address operational concerns

Mohammad Naqvi, Founder & CEO | Phone: 862-262-8520

Mohammad Naqvi brings 12+ years of investing experience and a breadth of knowledge in various investment advisory areas with specialization in pre-retirement, investment and portfolio management, 401K/IRA rollovers, and overall financial consultations. Mohammad has advised clients with diverse professional backgrounds (financial services, engineering, medicine, and legal, etc.), and is solely focused on meeting clients’ investment needs. This is achieved by clearly outlining the long-term plans and simplifying financial concepts so that near-term volatility does not influence key financial decisions. 

Mohammad started his investment career in the midst of the Great Recession (2008-09) and quickly realized that there were several pain points with the traditional financial services industry inhibiting many individuals from meeting their goals. These include disparity of offerings available to different segments, lack of clear communications, advisor’s market bias, and inability to proactively manage risk while delivering consistent performance.

Mohammad started a financial analysis platform, “Understand, Survive, and Thrive,” in 2010 to help investors navigate through several post-2009 uncertainties including the debt crisis of 2011, oil crash, and China crisis, and US-China trade war. At the same time, Mohammad has developed many proprietary market analysis techniques and investing processes to deliver consistent un-correlated portfolio performance with active risk management. These strategies are the cornerstone of Penta Capital Strategies and are continuously enhanced to ensure continuous augmentation of intelligent algorithms that help eliminate human bias from investment decisions and deliver performance for clients.

Mohammad completed his undergraduate from NJIT, M.S. from Columbia University, and executive education from Harvard Business School.
