Congratulations to Jack & Ryan for their continued Achievement

July 17, 2023

An integral part of the success and growth of Alaska Permanent Capital Management has been the continuous focus on financial education advancement both in the community and within the firm.

Over 20 years ago, Bill Lierman walked into the 900 West 5th Avenue office as an Intern. He had studied History in college while playing competitively in baseball and hockey. An unfortunate injury sidelined Bill’s Major League Baseball focus and rerouted him home.

Thankfully, Bill and our Founder, Dave Rose, worked together to develop a new path forward. Eventually, Bill studied diligently and passed the Certified Financial Analyst (CFA) exam.

As Chief Investment Officer for Fixed Income Assets at APCM, he places significant focus on developing professionals for the finance industry in Alaska.  

We’d like to highlight two exceptional employees who started as interns and have recently graduated.

Jack Straub, is an Investment Analyst, who has lived in Alaska for 23 years. He’s engaged to Sofia; the couple is planning their wedding for Summer 2023. They love to hike together and spend time with friends and family.

Jack graduated from Chugiak High School. He joined the Firm in 2017 as an Intern. He graduated from the University of Alaska, majoring in Finance with a minor in Economics. When asked about his experience, he pointed out that he appreciates how the firm’s Internship Program allows you to begin developing real world skills.

Please help us congratulate Jack on his accomplishment of becoming a CFA Charterholder! 

Ryan Navrot, born in Homer, Alaska is a first-generation college graduate. Ryan graduated from Homer High School, then attended Montana State University and the University of Alaska, completing the MBA program, and is now pursuing his CFA license.

When he’s not working and studying, one favorite pastime is playing guitar and writing music.

When asked about his experience, Ryan said the “Internship was a gentle transition into the world of finance, and Bill was patient and generous, and for that I am grateful.” 

Please help us congratulate Ryan on completing the MBA program!
