Our Philosophy & Approach

LakeView Asset Management, LLC (LVAM) specializes in the development of multi-strategy investments that seek to generate returns that exceed benchmarks of the client’s choosing.

We accomplish this by developing and executing low-risk, proprietary trading strategies, and by using a variety of investment techniques and tools that include options, structured products, ETFs (both leveraged and/or inverse or fixed income strategies, as appropriate).

LakeView Asset Management, LLC (LVAM) values the privacy of its clients. Scott Rothbort and/or other employees of LVAM may appear in live media or be quoted in printed media. With that in mind, under those circumstances, the company will disclose the names of stocks for which its clients, employees or the family of its employees own under the management of the company. However, it is the policy of LVAM not to disclose the size of any holdings or value of such stocks under management individually or in the aggregate unless required to do so by a matter of law or regulation.
