DAVID BEDFORD

Advisor, President

A diverse background in business and science led David to develop a passion for the markets. His experience in biomaterials research while employed at University of California San Francisco was a prelude to his future career in developing quantitative approaches to asset management.

David has been actively trading since 1998; forming Crescent Bay Capital Management in 2003 for the purpose of market research and profitable system development.  In August 2004, Crescent Bay Capital Management registered with the National Futures Association and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission as a Commodity Trading Advisor.

Under David's guidance and using strategies developed over the last 18 years, Crescent Bay Capital Management has managed over 500 futures and commodity accounts for individuals, family offices, institutions, and hedge funds.

David lives in Northern California with his wife and two daughters. When he's not spending time with his family or in the office he can usually be found on his mountain bike.
