What moves those of genius, what inspires their work is not new ideas, but their obsession with the idea that what has already been said is still not enough - Dellacroix

Peter is a Fordham University Fellow, at their Center for Research in Contemporary Finance. Mr. Lupoff continues his work related to Impact Investing and traditional asset and portfolio management in this role. Additionally, Peter is Fordham Gabelli School of Management's Executive in Residence (2018-19). Mr. Lupoff is Advisor to student-managed funds at Yale School of Management and Yale University, where he is also a Special Lecturer related to Impact Investing and Investment Research. These educational initiatives are an outgrowth of his Tiburon External Research Project, or TERP, investment educational initiative conceived as part of Lupoff's asset manager, Tiburon Capital Management (2009-17), geared to make the academically trained prospective investment professional, 'street ready'. TERP explored some Lupoff held theories on investing from this tabula rasa, or clean slate from which it’s younger TERP Analysts can work without the impediments of what has always been done, or how we do it here, without influence from the conditioned, or older thinking practitioners, custom or culture. TERP is presently offered exclusively at Fordham University and Yale University School of Management  via select student groups (Investment Management, Impact Investing). 


Lupoff's TERP Academic programs are 'gateway' programs, assisting students cross the chasm from academics to become more formidable employment candidates and productive and successful investment professionals in 1) traditional asset management, and 2) Impact Investing. TERP and its syllabus, can be further customized by scholastic institution or investment firm need. Please contact us if you are interested as a participant in TERP or, if you are an investing institution or university, wondering if TERP would be suitable and effective for you, your students or team. Sample TERP syllabus available upon request.

Quadrant 1 - Investment training for graduated candidates, placement with engaged, hiring investment firms 

Peter M. Lupoff - Founder, Instructor

Quadrant 1's mission is to fix the inefficiency that exists in the process of meeting hiring needs in the professional investment space. Currently firms spend countless hours collecting and sorting through resumes or pay exorbitant fees to executive recruiters in order to shortcut the process. In the end, the firm ends up with an inexperienced candidate or pays a premium for a candidate who has built up some experience elsewhere. Quadrant 1 can deliver on demand, high quality candidates with demonstrated abilities to do the job at a reasonable cost and in timely fashion.
