Robert "Bob" Kendall

Chief Quantitative Analyst
VPM Partners

From major corporations to the global market's top-50 banks, to just about anyone dealing in treasury securities in the banking and finance sector, Bob Kendall's insights serve as invaluable assets to their practices. The Daily Fixed-Income Report service helped to guide hundreds of billions of dollars in outright positions, mortgage-pipeline hedges, as well as spread trading.

Following a lengthy trading career along with years of conducting seminars for traders worldwide, Bob's vision for the future took on a new dimension. In 1992, he left the Pacific Options Exchange and his active trading/consulting career to collaborate with a software development company. His goal was to develop a software product capable of replicating the same objective, quantitative process proven so instrumental to his trading accomplishments throughout the years. In 1995, Mr. Kendall began to further explore the feasibility of incorporating an all-encompassing, cash-to-equities allocation process to portfolio management. The result was one of providing a tool through which portfolio managers could systematically and effectively manage capital resources and has been a key component of our equity management process here at LaSalle Financial for nearly 20 years.
