A psychiatrist and trading coach is offering his help to stressed out hedge fund managers and investors with a consulting firm specializing in peak-performance coaching for hedge funds, institutional investors and traders.

Ari Kiev said he is expanding the services he provides to hedge funds and other investment firms to include the assessment of new portfolio managers, team building and leadership training.

“Given the stress of today’s market and the challenges faced by professional investors, I felt the time was ripe for expanding my consultation work,” said Kiev.

Kiev said his services will encompass dealing with the stress of drawdowns, the behavioral dimension of risk management, psychological screening of analysts and portfolio managers, and creative approaches to building cultures of collaboration.
