A Foundation of Friendship

Lyrical Asset Management (LAM) continues a thirty-plus-year friendship of its founders, Jeffrey Keswin and Andrew Wellington. Jeff and Andrew met as classmates in the University of Pennsylvania’s Management and Technology Program, where they studied finance, management, and systems engineering in Penn’s Wharton School and School of Engineering. They became apartment-mates as they launched their careers in New York City, toiling first as junior analysts in investment banking and management consulting, respectively. Little did they know that some 18 years later they would launch an asset management firm together.

LAM embodies Jeff and Andrew’s entrepreneurial spirit and unconventional perspectives on the practice and business of investment management.
