Angelo A. Calvello is co-founder of Rosetta Analytics, Inc., a technology startup using proprietary deep learning techniques to create investment signals and scalable investment strategies.

He is also co-founder of Distributed Alpha, LLC, a proprietary trading firm that invests in mispriced application-driven, decentralized technologies, crypto currencies, and Blockchain tokenized assets, and founder of Impact Investment Partners, an investment consulting firm.

Additionally, Calvello is the “Dissident” columnist for Institutional Investor, where he had the most read opinion columns in 2017, and former columnist for Chief Investment Officer.

Calvello has also published extensively in other publications, including Pensions & Investments, Healthcare Financial Management, American Indian Culture and Research Journal (UCLA).

As a serial innovator and author and speaker focusing on artificial intelligence, Calvello’s unique insights into the rise of disruptive technologies and how they are re-shaping investment management—new sources of return and new tools to measure and manage risk, realignment of the relationships between asset owners and asset managers, different composition and demographics of the workforce, and transformation of traditional business models—have revealed the future of beneficial investing.

Calvello has over 25 years of experience in the institutional investment industry and holds a PhD in Contemporary European Philosophy from DePaul University. He is the author of Environmental Alpha: Institutional Investors and Climate Change (Wiley 2009), Founder and Publisher of the Journal of Environmental Investing, and member of the Chicago Quantitative Alliance. Calvello is the Chairman of the Board of Outreach with Lacrosse and Schools, a sports-based non-profit that creates educational opportunities for at-risk youths on Chicago’s South and West sides.
