Art Ernst

Art ErnstArt joined Byrne Asset in 2006. Since earning his M.B.A. at the Wharton Graduate School of Business in 1984, he has served the bulk of the last 33 years serving individuals, mutual funds, insurance companies, and foundations as a portfolio manager, economist, analyst and advisor.

During a 7-year stint outside Wall Street as CEO of a small, successfull textile manufacturer and consultant, he surveyed financial products and firms as a consumer; at first merely discerning value as an insider but switching to advocacy against the client-harming schemes he discovered. For Byrne Asset clients, he is the ultimate fiduciary, putting their interests above all else.

The 1981 recipient of the Eugene E. Agger Memorial Award as the top economics graduate at Rutgers, Art has written two books and several published articles exposing scams legally promoted by many financial firms.

He is the author of Wall Street Is Legally Scamming You, available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble and The Final Rip-Off: Reverse Mortgages, also available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
