Chris O’Grady | Chief Investment Officer

As Chief Investment Officer of Dakota, Chris O’Grady tries to blend his classic analytical training with structural trends in the marketplace. Through rigorous dialogue with allocators and asset managers, Chris and the team try to forecast where investment trends are topical and where these ideas fit in client portfolios.

In addition to his role as CIO, Chris maintains responsibilities for managing relationships with distribution platforms across multiple channels. Chris has a history with investment products outside the norm, particularly alternative investments, and he leads many of the sales efforts for Dakota’s alternative investment products.
