About Berton Hochfeld

Berton Hochfeld - Professional Summary:     

Berton Hochfeld is the founder of Hochfeld Independent Research Group (HIRG), a successful research firm in the enterprise software space. With clients among the world's top investment management professionals, HIRG provides research and analysis that translates into applicable and relevant intelligence. Mr. Hochfeld's marketing, economic, and technological expertise has led the company to a ranking as the top performing fund in the IT space for several years running.

Mr. Hochfeld founded HIRG in 2001, having already built a strong reputation in marketing and economic analysis. Since graduating from Harvard University in 1969 with a Master's degree in Finance, Berton Hochfeld has worked with top technology vendors, such as IBM, Telex Computer Products, and BMC Software. He has been a leading analyst with top firms including F. Eberstadt and Montauk Capital Markets Group, developing a reputation for excellent forecast accuracy and “sell side” analysis.

Berton Hochfeld is known for his innovative approach to economic concerns. He was one of the earliest practitioners of what is now known as econometrics, a combination of economics and mathematics that serves to quantify and analyze economic trends and relationships. His senior thesis at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School focused on this method, which was then untested and new to the market. Mr. Hochfeld still takes an innovative approach to financial analysis, making use of the enterprise software space to provide the latest intelligence and research to clients.

Mr. Hochfeld also makes use of his economic and analytic skills as a manager of the Heppelwhite Fund, a small but successful hedge fund that invests solely in the enterprise IT space. He has led the Fund to small gains in 2008 and 2011, in years when benchmark averages industry-wide were significantly negative. He credits this success and the success of his business to his wide range of financial and business expertise, as well as both formal and informal contacts in trading, industry analysis, and consulting.
