Steven Prusky, President and Owner
Steven Prusky has been affiliated with Windsor since serving as a summer employee in 1982. After receiving a Computer Science degree from Brown University with Honors, Mr. Prusky returned to Windsor full-time to automate the firm’s data collection process, beginning the important transition away from manual data collection and processing. He has remained with Windsor ever since, progressively moving through all positions, and eventually purchasing the firm in 2005.
Mr. Prusky began his investing career in 1987, when he co-developed Windsor’s first “black-box” trading model, and he has been a key architect of each subsequent trading model used at the firm. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s he continued intense research on equity markets while becoming the chief client liaison and one of Windsor’s two investment managers. In rapid succession, Mr. Prusky received his series 7 and series 24 (both are not active since the firm is no longer a broker-dealer). Shortly thereafter he received his insurance license and series 3 (both extant) and started MFIP, Inc., a CTA.
In his role as President, Mr. Prusky continues research on strategically applying technical analysis to the equities and futures’ markets.
Mr. Prusky has been married for 20+ years and is a devoted father of five children. His passions include travel, the environment and education. He serves on the Board of two private charitable foundations and two NGOs, one providing environmental education and experience to youth in the U.S., the other providing emergency and infrastructure relief both domestically and abroad.
