Executive Profiles

Steven L.steve-re web Re’, CFA, Founder, Chief Executive Officer, Portfolio Manager

Mr. Ré graduated from the University of Southern California in 1975.  He began his career as a financial analyst in corporate banking at Lloyd’s Bank of California.  This time period marked one of the worst recession’s in the United States since the 1930’s, and not unlike the present, it proved to be both a challenging period for lenders, and a highly educational environment for financial analysts.  Mr. Ré entered the investment business as a stockbroker, working at Bateman Eichler, Hill Richards and Drexel Burnham Lambert.  Evolving from a broker to a fee-based investment advisor in 1986, Mr. Ré continued his work at Sutro Investment Management Services and Freedom Capital Management.  He founded Fairbanks Capital Management, Inc. in 1995.

In a business where frequent turnover is the norm, Mr. Ré has achieved an extraordinarily high level of client retention, in fact  Mr. Ré’s first major client is still with him after some 35 years of uninterrupted service.   Mr. Ré has achieved this outstanding record by serving each of his clients with unquestionable integrity, intelligent insight, and by protecting and growing client assets despite times of rapid change and shifting markets.

Mr. Ré is a holder of the right to use the Chartered Financial Analyst designation (CFA®).  This designation, granted by the CFA Institute, is attained only by meeting the most rigorous of standards, and demonstrating a track record of the highest levels of professional and personal conduct.

Mr. Ré is a former president and member of the Board of Directors of the CFA Society of San Diego and a former president and member of the Board of Directors of the Fairbanks Ranch Association.  He recently served on the University of Southern California Alumni Association Board of Governors. In the past he has served as  Treasurer of The Bishop’s School athletics support group, and Moderator of his church.
