Scott J. Therriault Founding Principal
email@example.com | (203) 513-8572 ext. 10
As Founding Principal, Mr. Therriault brings 17 years of comprehensive capital market analysis expertise, equities trading experience, as well as, a wealth of deeply rooted, high level relationships in the investment banking community to BTRE. During his service at Merrill Lynch, JPMorgan Chase and UBS, Mr. Therriault consistently ranked amongst the top 5% in his production categories and was personally responsible for over $25 billion in equities transactions. Scott has aggregated in excess of $500 million in net profits on behalf of the financial institutions and investment banks that have employed him throughout his esteemed career. Mr. Therriault began taking equity positions in residential development and privately syndicated real estate investments in 2007. BTRE Partners is his inaugural venture as founder and lead equity investor.
In 1995, Scott began his career in the financial services industry at First Albany Corporation where he earned his Series 7 license and was trained in capital markets analysis, institutional equities trading and mergers & acquisitions. Mr. Therriault later joined Merrill Lynch where he became one of the youngest members of the firm to be promoted to the Director of Equities Trading position, reaching the top 5% in net production from 1999-2002. During his time with Merrill, Scott also managed large risk commitments of corporate capital for the firm’s institutional client base and was instrumental in coordinating the group’s mentoring and executive recruitment programs.
Mr. Therriault became an Executive Director at JP Morgan Chase in 2002, where he managed a team of eight traders who focused on the technology, media and telecom sectors of the NASDAQ exchange. Scott was later identified as the group’s top NASDAQ producer in 2004 and he ranked 3rd in overall Wall Street trading volume within the semi-conductor sector. His commitment to implementing innovative sales and marketing techniques on the institutional block trading desk helped create more efficient trading performance and fostered synergies between the pure equities, derivative trading, and investment banking divisions of JPM.
In 2004, Mr. Therriault was successfully recruited by UBS specifically to provide senior leadership to the firm’s equities sales & trading group. There, he continued to target the technology, media and telecom sectors of the market. Through the introduction of advanced trading strategies, initiatives and algorithmic platforms, Scott became a key contributor to an exemplary team performance in high risk NASDAQ block trading and continued to be the group’s top ranked producer through the establishment of new institutional trading relationships. By 2007, UBS ranked 1st globally in overall NASDAQ market share. –btrepartners.com

Tycoon Scot Young’s fatal fall linked to five other mystery deaths
Stephen Curtis died when his new £1.5million machine plunged to the ground a short distance from an airport.
Days earlier he told a relative: “If anything happens to me in the next few weeks, it will not be an accident.”Details of the crash emerged as police investigated the gruesome death of Mr Young on Monday. The property developer was killed when he was impaled on railings after plunging 60ft from the window of a £3million home in Marylebone, central London.
It was Mr Curtis who reportedly introduced Young and two members of his circle, Robert Curtis and Paul Castle, to Russian billionaires. As a legal adviser on major property deals, Stephen Curtis was also acquainted with Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky.
Mr Young, Robert Curtis and Mr Castle all died after apparently committing suicide in the past four years. In March last year, exiled Mr Berezovsky was found dead in the bathroom of his home with a ligature round his neck.

70-Year-Old Hedge Fund Founder Shot Dead By His Son
04 Jan 2015
We thought yesterday’s absurd story of former hedge fund manager James Crombie, founder of Paron Capital Management, who was arrested after found squatting in a million dollar Maryland house, would be as strange as it gets for hedge fund news this weekend. We were wrong: moments ago the WSJ reported that Thomas Gilbert, founder of the $200 million Wainscott hedge fund, whose success Gilbert said previously had come from investing in biotech funds, was found dead with a single bullet to the head in his Manhattan apartment this afternoon, allegedly shot by none other than his 30-year-old son.
From the WSJ:
NY Daily News adds more:
Gilbert was a big biotech investor:
From Gilbert’s website bio:
To be sure, the newsflow out of hedge fund land at the start of every year when the books are squared away tends to get crazy, but this is far and beyond the pale and even put to shame the story of Kim Karapetyan, 29-year old Moscow Hedge Fund wunderkind, who instead of facing his investors following massive losses decided to simply… disappear.
