The NIR Group, headquartered in Roslyn New York, is a unique investment firm which places it emphasis on specialization. Corey Ribotsky, managing member and head portfolio manager sees the advantages of specialization in the following way:
“We believe at the NIR Group that specialization gives our investors the best road to meeting their goals. Our guiding principle is to adhere to a consistent core strategy and then follow through with it to the greatest extent possible. Each fund we create has a particular strategy in mind, giving each fund the ability to focus on and succeed according to its pre-established core strengths. The idea behind the philosophy of specialization is that it gives our investors at NIR the ability to choose the single strategy that they wish to follow, giving them exactly what they want."
