Purpose and passion
Russ is the CEO and Chief Investment Officer of CORAL Investment Partners, as well as one of its co-founders. He is a senior portfolio manager for the Portfolio Management Program—managing large-cap growth and high-yield equity portfolios. Russ brings his considerable expertise and passion to equity investing and advising clients on asset allocation suitable to their unique situations.
Russ is disciplined and well-grounded in the investment process, with the confidence and conviction to act. He helped form CORAL Investment Partners as a remedy to all the bad products, poor advice and unknowledgeable advisors he has seen during his more than 40 years in the business. Along with his team, Russ enjoys helping people, beating expectations and seeing the good outcomes experienced by the families he advises.
A fascination with how companies grow
Growing up, Russ was fascinated by the family portfolio his grandfather put together from a few shares of General Electric stock. His fascination grew into an interest in how businesses grow or fail over time. Russ graduated cum laude from Rutgers University with a B.A. in economics. He started his career in the financial services industry in 1977 as a Financial Advisor with Merrill Lynch. He continued in that capacity and added the role of Portfolio Manager at Oppenheimer. He joined UBS (then PaineWebber) in 1994, where he was a solo Financial Advisor. In 2000, he was joined by his partner and wife, Margaret Beal. Along with Tom Coash, they formed CORAL Investment Partners in 2011. Russ was appointed Managing Director, Investments, in 2012. He has taken part in the UBS pilot program for the Clinton Initiative, a mentoring program working with small business clients and women entrepreneurs. He also serves on the UBS Portfolio Management Council, an editorial advisory group for wealth management research.
Russ is on the investment committee of the Center for Arts Education of New York City. He and his wife Margaret live in Scarsdale, NY. They have two college-aged sons, Matthew and Casey. Russ is a wine collector, an avid sailor and enjoys skiing during the winter months.
