RIDGEWOOD, NJ — Advisors Capital Management, LLC (ACM), a NJ investment manager, announced that Dr. Alan Greenspan has joined ACM as Economic Advisor. The former Federal Reserve Chairman will work closely with senior members of the firm and participate in the firm’s investment committee by providing economic analysis to support the firm’s top-down approach to selecting sectors in the economy for investment. Dr. Greenspan will also provide economic and market valuation analysis.
ACM’s co-founder and Chief Investment Officer, Dr. Charles Lieberman, said, “I am very excited to resume working with one of the towering members of the economics profession.
