Vice President

Lightstone Capital Management LLC

Gregory Woods joined Lightstone Capital Management in 1999. His responsibilities include the development, and creation of new portfolio strategies and the development of new products using these strategies. He has worked closely with Lightstone’s CIO Michael Legatt, to create and beta-test new software applications for use in the research process. Gregory also oversees the daily maintenance and tracking of the live portfolios, while maintaining and performing quality control on the multiple databases and data sources necessary for this research. He is also in charge of the implementation of all the current strategies from their formation to their actual trading.

He worked on a number of research papers and books, one of which was his work for the book The Fourth Mega-Market (Acampora: Hyperion, 2000) which focused on the economic conditions, and stock market movements of the late 19th century America. He also coauthored the papers: “Using Quantitative Methods of Stock Selection to Offer Shariah Compliant Strategies Across All Equity Styles”, presented at Islamic Finance World, Toronto, Canada. May 22–24, 2007; and “Searching for Alpha”, presented at Islamic Finance World, New York. May 19-22, 2008. These papers focused on creating equity strategies that comply with Shariah law, but also give investors the opportunity for full asset allocation.
