Russell Tanner

Walsh Capital Management

Russell Tanner began his career in the financial industry in the epicenter of it all, the trading floors in Chicago. Since then he has either traded or worked on the 3 major floors in Chicago.

He started as a runner on the floor of the Chicago Board Options Exchange in 1982. It was a unique opportunity in that the CBOE traded options as a primary. Other floors were trading futures with options as a sideline. This gave him an understanding of puts and calls at a time when they were virtually unheard of outside the industry. As the trading floors were going the way of the dinosaur, he moved off the floor and into the office. He acquired his series 3 license in 2003 with a wealth of knowledge already under his belt.

His main focus is to work with clients in the way which will most benefit them. Be it devising a strategy to protect an existing portfolio or if they are looking to diversify into futures as a component to their portfolios. His approach is that building wealth is pyramidal. Each trade or position is meant to build on an existing base. He knows the relationship between advisor and client is symbiotic. Each wants the other to do well. His goal is to build relationships which stand the test of time. He looks forward to hearing from clients and discussing both their, and his ideas. Looking to mitigate risk is also a key factor in his investment strategy. Looking across all commodity markets is also part of what he does. Markets tend to cycle, so it makes sense to look at all areas.

Russell lives in downtown Chicago with his wife. He enjoys working out as well as what the city has to offer. The symphony and great restaurants. As well as the theater and lake front. Few things beat coffee and a cigar at the lakefront on a nice day.
