Elevation Derivative Services


Leon joined Elevation Securities in 2018 as an Event Driven/Special Situations Research Analyst focused on option ideas. He is a former Managing Director at Citigroup, with more than twenty years of experience in multi-strategy derivatives research and investing. During his tenure at Citigroup, he routinely supplied leading hedge funds with daily trading ideas covering areas such as volatility, event driven, macro, fundamental, credit, statistical, multi-asset, convertibles, new securities, and hedging. Leon built a loyal following among the firm’s largest and most sophisticated hedge fund clients. Leveraging his experience in complex derivatives, as well as his natural analytical ability and strong academic background, he has developed a unique and highly effective investment style. Leon holds a BA in Mathematics and a MA in Philosophy from the University of Chicago.

Leon has traveled to fifty countries, done business in ten countries, lived in four countries, learned six languages, done doctoral level work in three fields, played in a blues band, and spends most of his free time with his eleven-year-old son, who doesn’t care about any of that.
