Thomas F. Paolozzi III – Founder & Portfolio Manager

Beginning his career over 25 years ago on the Board of Trade in Chicago, Tom built a RIA founded on the tenet of strong risk adjusted absolute returns.  Almost a dozen years ago he opened The Plato Fund, LP further building upon this principle and has been the fund’s portfolio manager since.  The Plato Fund, LP’s concentrated small cap value focus has delivered strong, long-term alpha with a low correlation and downside capture compared to the major indices.  “I am passionate about leveraging my investment experience and process to grow my clients wealth.”
