Trent Smalley

Investment Advisor/Portfolio Manager

Trent J. Smalley, CMT is a Portfolio Manager and Investment Advisor Representative at JSPM LLC.

As a native of Omaha, Nebraska Trent’s initial approach to markets began with a comprehensive study of value investing principles pioneered by Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffet, Charlie Munger, and more recently, Joel Greenblatt.

Having started his career in 2007 and navigating through the global financial crisis in 2008-2009, he saw the need to supplement his fundamental approach to markets with technical analysis. In doing so, he completed the Chartered Market Technician Designation through the CMT Association in 2017.

Since that time, Trent has held various roles within the financial services industry, most recently joining JSPM LLC in 2020. His custom portfolios are constructed with his individual client’s objectives and risk tolerance in mind as he adheres to a strict fiduciary duty as a fee-only advisor.

Trent is an active member of the CMT Association and is a member of the CFA Society of New York. He resides in New York City and is an avid Brooklyn Nets fan.
