Investment bankers aren't known for being disruptive. But Jeff Solomon is different. He thrives on the new, embracing nascent technologies and driving institutional understanding and adoption, from cannabis to digital assets. Jeff’s firm, Cowen, is its own breed of investment bank, living five minutes in the future even though it’s 100 years old. His perspective is informed by a fascinating career trajectory – a failed actor who helmed a $5 billion hedge portfolio and is now chairman and CEO of a cutting-edge financial institution. Jeff’s fun and inspiring story includes lots of great lessons, including a peek behind the curtain at the people driving a fresh wave of investment in disruptive technology.
