Patrick Valle


Valle Capital Management, LLC


Patrick Valle has been a licensed financial services professional since 1997, working as a margins analyst, Nasdaq market maker, institutional trading specialist, and a trade review supervisor. His experience surviving the dot-com bubble in the late 90's while a market maker as well as the financial meltdown of 2008-2009 while working at WaMu Investments has shaped his style of options trading to focus on those strategies which hedge or eliminate unwanted risk from the stock market.

Mr. Valle started Valle Capital Management LLC, an RIA firm, in 2009 with the goal of using options to enhance performance of long-term stock and ETF portfolios. His knowledge and experience allow him to adjust to any market condition, and look for unique opportunities that present themselves in options trading (i.e., volatility trades). He enjoys teaching his clients options strategies, and use of the "greeks" to help manage the risk in their portfolios. Mr. Valle holds a B.A. Degree from UCLA in Psychology with Specialization in Business Administration.
