Charles Gabriel has 30 years' experience in political forecasting for institutional investors. He left Capitol Hill after serving as a Reagan-era House staffer to join the former Drexel Burnham Lambert, and later starred as Washington research head at Prudential Equity Group. He co-founded Capital Alpha Partners in late 2007. In addition to election forecasting, budget issues and policy-related investment strategy, he has long translated developments impacting the mortgage, specialty finance and education sectors. A particular specialty is predicting, gauging and contextualizing "political risk" as seen through the eyes of money managers. Gabriel's "Election Risk Reports" and biennial "Red Stock, Blue Stock" lists have won high regard. He is also an entertaining speaker and frequent guest on business television.
