About Vitaliy Katsenelson
Vitaliy Katsenelson was born and raised in Murmansk, Russia (the home for Russia’s northern navy fleet, think Tom Clancy’s Red October). He immigrated to the US from Russia in 1991 with all his family.
Vitaliy is a Director of Research / Portfolio Manager at Investment Management Associates, Inc (IMA) a value investment firm based in Denver, Colorado. After receiving his graduate and undergraduate (cum laude) degrees in finance from University of Colorado at Denver, and finishing his CFA designation, he wanted to keep learning. Figuring the best way to learn is to teach, Vitaliy first taught an undergraduate class at the University of Colorado at Denver and later a graduate investment class at the same university that was designed based on his day job. He is currently on sabbatical from teaching for awhile.
Vitaliy has written articles for Financial Times, Barron’s, BusinessWeek, New York Post, Forbes.com, among others. He has been interviewed in Barrons, The Wall Street Transcript, Value Investor Insight, Welling@Weeden, BusinessWeek, BNN, CNBC, and countless radio shows. Vitaliy is also the author of Active Value Investing: Making Money in Range-Bound Markets an investment book published by John Wiley & Sons in October 2007, and interviewed by Jim Puplava February 2008.
