Frederick Lacy, president of California-based Fincom Investment Partners, began as a Chicago commodity broker in 1984, before heading west in 1987, joining Bateman Eichler, Hill Richards. Ultimately "retiring" in 2000 as a licensed Securities Principal and Managing Director of Investment Banking, he has been involved in numerous successful investments, including raising the institutional start-up capital for what became PetroHawk, subsequently purchased by BHP in 2011 for $15 billion. Fincom IP was one of the very few correctly calling both sides of oil's 2003-2014 bull market, repeatedly advising clients, months before the 2014 top, of a "100% chance of a bloodbath in oil." The firm also has a long-time involvement with technology, such as mobile payments in India; leading an early $13 million VC financing for a "ledger" software (a sector now commonly known as "blockchain"); other investments include 3D holographic display technology along with early mobile applications. Fincom's long-time clients are enormously successful investors. Some helped found/director of LNG pioneer Cheniere Energy; others founded Upfront Ventures, the #1 performing venture capital fund last decade. In 1989, Mr. Lacy hosted "The Venture Capitalist," which aired on (now) CNBC and he was invited to Beijing in 2006 to advise Chinese companies on entering the U.S. financial markets. Fincom Investment Partners is not accepting new clients and does not sell any subscription services.
