Meet Our Executive Team

Michael J. Shatsky

Managing Partner / Chief Investment Officer

Michael is the Founder and Managing Partner, as well as the Chief Investment Officer of Sky Alpha Asset Advisors.  He also serves as the lead Portfolio Manager for the firm’s proprietary ATV Strategy. After studying business at Florida Atlantic University and dabbling in the sports memorabilia industry, Michael started his career at Smith Barney in 1993. There, he focused on fixed-income securities for High Net Worth Individuals and was mentored by some of the most successful advisors at the firm.  They taught him to always prioritize the client’s best interests, which helped him build strong client relationships and a solid business model.

In 1995, Michael began developing what is now the present-day SPX option strategy ‘Alpha Through Volatility’, and his dedication to making this strategy the focus of his wealth management business was a significant step that eventually led to the founding of Sky Alpha 23 years later.  “Our niche will differentiate us for years to come as the industry becomes more homogenized and there are fewer ways to truly add value in active portfolio management,” he says.

While studying the markets has always been a passion, Mike also enjoys time away from the office with his beautiful 11-year-old daughter. Together, they enjoy the beach, sports, movies and traveling. He is an avid golfer and belongs to Adios, one of the most exclusive clubs in South Florida.
