Thomas Landstreet Profile
As manager of the global macro N3L Fund, named for Newton's 3rd Law, Tom analyzes government economic policies and their incentive effects on behavior…and prices in the real economy. His behavioral economic analysis leads him to specific investments.
As a speaker and writer, Tom reflects knowledge gained from investing as well as his experience working for one of history's celebrated economists, Dr. Arthur Laffer. But it is his background in theater and stand-up comedy that animates his speeches. He can take complicated topics of the day and make them interesting and often humorous.
In this environment of heightened policy activity, corporate and industry leaders are increasingly concerned about how policy changes will alter their business prospects. This is Tom's specialty. He is an expert on monetary, fiscal, regulatory and trade policies, and how changes in any of those four areas can dramatically affect industries, commodities, currencies, and companies.
An example of the insights Tom brings to his audiences: On August 20, 2014, while oil prices hovered near all-time highs, Tom published a Forbes.com article predicting a major collapse in prices. Almost immediately, oil prices began a decline culminating in a 50% price cut within five months. Tom's audiences receive this foresight in the months prior to the collapse.
Tom has been published in the Wall Street Journal, City Wire, Forbes.com and appears weekly on One America News Network's "The Daily Ledger" show. He has accumulated nearly half a million readers on Forbes alone. He frequently speaks at investor and corporate conferences and is a regular guest lecturer at universities including Vanderbilt University.
Tom spent 13 years as an institutional equity salesman for several investment banks, five years as a VP of Laffer Associates producing macro-economic research and seven years as the proprietor of Standard Research Corp. He founded the N3L Fund in early 2017.
Tom enjoys educating audiences, playing music, golf and hiking. He has been married for 30 years and is the father of three well behaved children.
