FINARCFinancial Analysis Research Consulting
Cosima F. Barone has been involved in investing for four decades. She is a member of GSCGI's Board, in charge of the Banking Relations' Commission. Cosima has advised many large clients, both institutional and individual, in how to preserve and grow their assets. She's very experienced with dealing with the difficulties inherent in a family with a large portfolio. Cosima provides original, well-thought out analysis, without the bias inherent in many advisors. Having spent most of her career in Switzerland, she brings an international perspective that is critical with today's currency swings. It does you little good to have bought a market that is rising in its local currency, when that currency is declining. Cosima's goal is long-term growth, and risk management is a critical part of that strategy. Cosima's creativity is the central pillar of FINARC. Everyone can explain surprises after the fact. It takes a very special person to anticipate the unexpected.
