Consulting clients and building systems for winning
Hedge Funds · Private Equity · Banking
We’re not just consultants, we’re practitioners. We’ve sat in the seats of our clients, we know what it takes to win, and we build the systems we wish were handed to us when we were sitting in banks, hedge funds, and private equity firms. We don’t do “training.” We build end-to-end systems that get pushed down to every employee, making your firm better year after year.
Geoff Blades | President
Geoff founded BLK as an institutional platform to complement his work as a leader in the field of personal development. Seeing the enormous impact his work was having on the skillfulness and success of just one on his banking clients at Goldman Sachs, Geoff began to imagine what would be possible if you built systems to push down and expertly train all bankers. BLK was born and Geoff began assembling a team of highly experienced professionals (a number whom remain private) to help him build it.
Patrick Yeghnazar | Partner, Head Hedge Fund Advisory
After a career at Goldman Sachs and as a top trader at Highbridge Capital, Patrick was drawn into the world of top performance. Initially exploring how hard-core mental conditioning could improve his own trading, Patrick saw how much this skill would have improved his performance at Highbridge, as well as the enormous need for this type of knowledge in the hedge fund community. Coming together with Geoff, whom he worked with early in his career at Goldman Sachs, they began to build the systems that today form the foundation of our Hedge Fund Advisory.
Quentin Danziger | Head R&D, Special Projects
“Q” is responsible for a lot of the background thinking that goes into some of our projects, and when Geoff is dreaming up stuff, he’s often doing it in the lab with Q. A deep thinker on advanced topics, with a degree in Engineering Physics from Colorado School of Mines, Q brings a variety of skills that we rely on to craft custom solutions for our clients. Based in Colorado, Q lives outside the box, and brings his unique perspective to everything we do.
