Andrew McCormick

Since launching Mack Research in 2015, Andrew has engaged in continuous research and analysis of systematic investing strategies and timing models.  He is the primary contributor to the monthly Mack Research report.

 

Prior to Mack Research, Andrew worked within BlackRock Alternative Advisors, where he and a small team oversaw the operations of approximately $30Bn in client assets across fund of funds, private equity, renewable power, real assets, and single-strategy hedge funds.

 

From 2012 to 2014, Andrew was president of Atlas Ratings, a research and advisory company that evaluated the security and stability of commodity brokerage firms (FCMs).  He founded Atlas as a result of the MF Global collapse and positioned the company to serve in an advisory capacity for global hedge funds, energy companies, utilities, high-net-worth investors, and proprietary trading firms.  Senator Baccus (MT) used Atlas research in a Senate Agricultural Committee hearing to quantify the risk of vulnerable brokerage firms on farmers and ranchers.

 

Prior to Atlas, Mr. McCormick was the founder and president of MKC Global Investments, a hedge fund and CTA.  The fund’s strategy was quantitative and utilized a long-term trend-following approach across nearly 100 global commodity, financial, and FX markets.

 

Andrew attended Montana State University and is a registered EMT and combat-certified fire fighter.  He is a husband and father, has a yellow lab (Beasley), and lives in Seattle.
