In 2000 although the general stock market was headed south at the time, Initial Public Offerings were still hot. So Chris went on to become the third employee and V.P. at IPOsyndicate.com (owned by Mercer Partners), a pioneer in providing individual investors access to initial public offerings (typically restricted only to institutional investors or ultra wealthy individuals) via the internet.
During his tenure, at IPO syndicate.com, he assembled large groups of investors, bringing them broader exposure to the pre-IPO investments and privately owned high yield bonds, convertible bonds and PIPE offerings. Chris utilized these and other types of financial instruments to help individual investors and corporations meet their financial objectives.

In 1995, at age 17, Chris started his career on Wall Street in New York City at investment bank and broker-dealer. Throughout “the roaring 90s”, the majority of the capital Chris managed was invested in equities, bonds, index funds and sophisticated equity options strategies. He managed and hedged many of the firm’s largest accounts and assisted on the trading desk, assisting the traders in trading the firm’s capital.
