About Me


My name is Michael Spelman and I’m the Founder & CEO of EVP Research. My background includes portfolio management roles in quantitative equities, commodity trading and hedge funds. Most recently, I was the CIO at a multi-billion AUM asset manager in charge of building customized portfolios for institutional investors.

After selling my partnership stake in the company, I sought a competitive, investor-friendly way to grow my own capital. I wanted a portfolio that not only performed better than the stock market, but was also adaptive to the prevailing macro environment and offered a combination of strong risk control, transparency, low fees and daily liquidity. Because I couldn’t find one that met my requirements, I decided to build one that did. The result of that effort is EVP Research.

If you find the quality of insights compelling, I hope you will consider adding EVP Research to your own research stack – it’s the reason I use it for my own investing. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
