NEW HAVEN, Conn., April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Hedgeye Risk Management, a leading independent provider of real-time investment research and ideas, today announced that The Most Interesting Investor in the World has joined the firm as CEO effective immediately.

Keith McCullough, Founder and retiring CEO of Hedgeye notes, "I’m thrilled to have The Most Interesting Investor in the World accept our offer to become CEO of Hedgeye Risk Management.  He has decades of experiences across markets, and he is really the only person in the world I could envision taking over the helm at Hedgeye as I pursue my lifelong goal of playing in the National Hockey League.”

The Most Interesting Investor in The World has over 50 years experience trading global markets.

Daryl “Big Alberta” Jones, Managing Director, adds, “This is clearly an inflection point in the growth of Hedgeye Risk Management, as our competitor, Goldman Sachs, was purportedly interviewing The Most Interesting Investor in the World to succeed Lloyd Blankfein who is rumored to be moving on to replace Timothy Geithner at the Treasury Department.”

According to The Most Interesting Investor in The World, “In fact, I share many beliefs with my new partners at Hedgeye, but most important it is our common view of Keynesian Economics.  In one word: No.  While replacing retiring CEO Keith McCullough will be no easy task, I, too, will wake up at 4:00 a.m. to manage risk for Hedgeye’s subscribers.”

In addition to his new role as CEO, The Most Interesting Investor in the World will also be recommending Dos Equis for Hedgeye’s annual summer picnic.
