Jason Apollo Voss is author of the forthcoming book, "The Intuitive Investor: A Radical Guide for Manifesting Wealth." Over the course of his investment career as co-Portfolio Manager of the Davis Appreciation & Income Fund (DAIF), the Fund bested the NASDAQ by 77.0%, the S&P 500 by 49.1% and the DJIA by 35.9%. Importantly, these returns were earned even in recessionary, and financial-market-bubble-bursting, times. And these returns were earned with significantly less volatility than that of the overall stock market. The DAIF was one of Morningstar's first 10 mutual funds (of 10,000) to receive its Stewardship Award for ethical stewardship of investor monies.
At the time of Jason's retirement at the age of 35, the firm he worked for Davis Selected Advisers was one of the nation's top 50 largest money management firms and among the largest shareholders for a number of household name companies, such as American Express, Costco, Altria (i.e. Philip Morris), Sealed Air (makers of bubble wrap), etc.
The DAIF was regularly ranked in the top decile of its investment category and further it earned a Lipper #1 ranking. The Fund was named a Lipper Leader, and was a perennial Morningstar Analyst Pick. Voss has given numerous press interviews to: the Wall Street Journal, Barron's, Business Week, Bloomberg, Reuters, Money, the Wall Street Transcript, Smart Money, Red Herring, Value Line, etc.
Jason holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics, and a Masters of Business Administration with an emphasis in Finance and Accounting, from the University of Colorado. Additionally, he is a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) as designated by the CFA Institute.
