Marc Smith is the Founder and Managing Partner of Red Wave Investments. I have worked in the financial industry since 1998. Prior to Red Wave, I was a Partner and Portfolio Manager at Hayek Kallen Investment Management. My professional experience also includes working as an investment analyst at a hedge fund, a publishing analyst covering the retail/consumer products sector for institutional investors and as an investment banker in New York and Los Angeles where I focused on mergers & acquisitions and capital raising transactions primarily for the healthcare and utility industries.

I earned an MBA in Finance from Cornell University and a BA in English Literature from Pepperdine University.

The name Red Wave stems from the sports mascots at my two schools, Cornell and Pepperdine.
