DRN Financial LLC is the brainchild of Ali Nejadmalayeri, Ph.D., CFA (a.k.a., Dr. N, as his students call him). The two passions of Dr. N's research revolve around (1) the role macro factors such as demography and technological innovations play in asset prices and (2) the role of information flow (corporate actions, FOMC announcements, regulatory changes) play in credit markets (corporate and municipal bonds).
