Stephen Hicks – The Man Behind Southridge Capital

Southridge Capital is a private equity firm based in Connecticut which provides securities brokerage and investment banking services. The firm’s CEO is Stephen Hick, who helped found it in 1996 and is continuing to manage its business development. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, earned from King’s College in New York, and an additional MBA degree, earned from Fordham University.



According to PR Newswire, Hicks has more than 3 decades of experience in the world of finance and has an impressive portfolio of responsibility when it comes to his role at Southridge Capital. He focuses on cash procedures from the company’s portfolios in order to ensure that they are maximizing their investments. He is leading a skilled team with a wide range of knowledge and experience in order to maintain the success of the company. Hicks notes that there is a wide set of skills which are necessary in order to be successful as an entrepreneur as the field is very competitive – and a daily list of tasks is a valuable to Mr. Hicks.



When talking about his day-to-day operations, Southridge Capital CEO Stephen Hicks states that he does not have a typical routine. The day starts with a review of the company’s portfolio, and with the creation of a list of tasks that need to be accomplished during the day by him and the staff. He spends his day masking sure that the firm’s investments are performing as expected, and looking for opportunities for new investment for the future. He relies on a few data and information resources when it comes to the market, his go-to places being Wall Street Journal online, Quoutestream, and OTC markets.



Coming up with the idea for Southridge Capital was a matter of circumstance and luck, according to Hicks. While he was working in New York at a hedge fund, the principal partner decided to return to his home country and gave a year to wind down the operations in order to close the company. Hicks decided it was a good opportunity for him to start a business on his own and launch a hedge fund.
