Applying an Advisor-Centered
Approach to Complex Strategies
Founder and president
Founder and President Al Scofield early on understood Moore’s Law of the exponential growth of computing capacity and the extraordinary value this held for analyzing securities prices. The seed of what became EdgeTech was planted in the mid-1980s when Al, after having taken out a loan to buy one of the most powerful consumer computers then available, wrote his first software algorithm investment model. Al continually improved his source code and analysis along with the rapid development of technology through the ‘90s as he used his insights to aid his investment advisory practice.
Fellow investment advisers curious as to Al’s process and recognizing his success within the industry eventually inquired as to Al’s unique approach to active management. It was then, in 2002, that Al decided he would share his custom-designed software innovations with the financial advisory community. EdgeTech Analytics, LLC was later established in 2007 to help bring the technology to more advisors and their clients across the country.

Whether it’s athletes, musicians, mathematicians, or inventors, Drew has always given reverence to those who are able to break concepts down to their most fundamental levels and begin to rebuild them in ways that have never been seen or thought of before. He and the team at EdgeTech are passionate about taking those same unconventional approaches into the investment technology space and directly to advisors and their clients.
Working closely with both the development and distribution teams, Drew oversees implementation for all EdgeTech partnerships. Nearly a decade in the fin-tech area has taught Drew that no two advisors or clients are the same and each comes with their own unique set of opportunities. Finding creative solutions for any advisor can only be done by leveraging technology to do so and is at the heart of what Drew does every day.
