Jeffry Schneider was raised in Manhattan in New York City. After graduating from the University of Massachusetts with a Bachelor’s of Science degree, Jeffry returned to New York and began working in the financial services field in New York City. Among the financial companies he previously worked for are Merrill Lynch, Alex Brown and Smith Barney.
After learning the ropes of the financial services field, Jeffry Schneider founded his own company Ascendant Capital LLC, based in Austin, Texas. Ascendant Capital LLC raises money for alternative asset fund sponsors and has grown from two to over thirty employees in the past five years alone. The company uses a creative and varied range of financial structuring through education, sales, marketing and operational services. As the founder of this company, Jeffry has helped Ascendant Capital LLC raise almost one billion dollars. The current goal of the company is to raise fifty million dollars monthly.

Some of these programs are Wonders and Worries, God’s Love We Deliver, Camp Honey Creek’s Summer Dream Program, The Cherokee Home for Children, and The Gazelle Program.
But his passions include more than his business and his generosity in the non-profit sector. Schneider is also passionate about health and travel. He has combined these two successfully by training for and competing in a series of Ironman and Half Ironman marathons all around the world. These grueling competitions combine swimming, biking and running. Schneider has competed in these events around the world and continues to train and eat a healthy diet as well as he runs his company: with determination and enthusiasm.
