ABOUT

Jeff Hybiak, CFA®

Chief Investment Officer

Jeff is a CFA charterholder and received his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration (Finance & Accounting emphasis) from the University of Northern Colorado, where he was a member of the Financial Management Association National Honor Society.  He has worked in the field of accounting and finance since 1992.  Jeff was one of the minority of advisors warning about the looming financial crisis. SEM first warned about the upcoming recession in December 2006. In addition to helping his clients successfully navigate the dot-com bubble bursting, his piece, The Pending Forest Fire was widely criticized as 'doom & gloom' marketing by advisors throughout 2007 and early 2008. Instead it correctly predicted how easily the crisis could spread due to the bubble cycles created by the Federal Reserve. Prior to joining SEM, Jeff served as a Fund Manager/Analyst for the UNC Alumni Foundation Fund, a balanced portfolio consisting of equity, fixed income, and cash securities.  He joined Strategic Equity Management, Inc. in October 1998. 

Jeff & his wife Brandi, who is Advisor Services / Operations Manager for SEM also serves as his assistant, have 6 children (plus a son & daughter-in-law), ranging in age from 25 down to 12 year old twins.  They welcomed their first grandchild in 2017. Besides just enjoying their large family, Jeff enjoys exploring their new home state of Virgia by riding his bike, playing tennis, & hiking.  He also enjoys playing piano & guitar.
