Summary

Stewart Flink possesses three decades of experience with securities and investments. After working for industry giants like Goldman Sachs and Bear Stearns for several years, Mr. Flink established Next View Capital LP in 2009 to give investors a level playing field. Under Stewart Flink's leadership, Next View Capital focuses on global diversification in the metals, mining, energy, health care, and technology industries, with a focus on private placements in public companies. On its official website at www.nextviewcap.com, Next View Capital illustrates the problems Stewart Flink observes in the traditional model of business in the financial industry. For example, in most established institutions, account managers are paid commissions on their clients’ transactions, and incentive bonuses are based on the firm’s own valuation of client account performance, two areas which may exploit investors. Stewart Flink structured Next View Capital’s compensation model to prevent such manipulations by removing the financial incentive unless the investors in the fund make money. Blanket commissions on transactions as an incentive are eliminated altogether, and his financial managers are rewarded based on the actual performance of their clients’ accounts as calculated by a third-party administrator. Well-known and respected within the investment community, Stewart Flink earned his Master of Business Administration from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. He served eight years on the alumni board and maintains involvement with the school’s Pete Henderson Society. Over the years, he has made presentations on portfolios and wealth protection to peer groups, academic organizations, and accounting firms and has published newsletters and articles on various topics of interest to the financial industry. Additionally, Stewart Flink was a contributing author to Bloomberg Financial's PIPEs: A Guide to Private Investments in Public Equity with a chapter on due diligence.
