Robert Shatz, Chief Operating Officer
Bob Shatz has been involved in alternative finance research and sales for the past 25 years.  As an
analyst in the Equity Department for Nomura Research Institute in Tokyo, he translated corporate
and industry research about publicly listed companies on the Tokyo Stock Exchange from Japanese
into English for the 10,000 strong English speaking global sales force across the Nomura network
including Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, London, and New York.  He then became the first foreign
analyst to be trained in Tokyo and sent to sell Japanese debt and equity research to institutional
investors in the USA.

Bob broke the 20 year Los Angeles Branch record for an equity transaction in his first six months on
the job ($32 million), and his knowledge of Japanese culture and cross-cultural communications
helped him salvage the first $250 million mutual fund marketed by Nomura in Japan for Rosenberg
Institutional Equity Management. The relationship grew into a $5 billion joint venture at its peak.

He was promoted to top management and played an instrumental role in facilitating the first
mortgage backed securities mutual fund between Japanese investors and Trust Company of the West
($750 million).  After leaving Nomura, he retired to Tucson to raise his family and look for interesting
investment opportunities in sustainable ventures.
