Neal M. Dietz 
Managing Director & Chief Investment Officer

Since 1983, Neal Dietz has offered a distinctive blend of professional investment guidance and personal service. His more than 30 years of managing individual equity, mutual fund and derivative portfolios gives clients a direct line of communication to their own personal, professional wealth manager.

Neal's extensive study of technical analysis, as well as his degree in Accounting from Boston University, has guided him in doing comprehensive work with Relative Strength Investing that strives to mitigate risk and identify investment opportunity. Relative Strength attempts to identify and track those areas or sectors of the market that are stronger than others. This work is the foundation for the investment strategy provided exclusively to the clients of Dietz & Lynch Capital.

Finally, his own experience as the owner of a successful restaurant in New York (1976-1983) allows him to combine personal experience with the struggles of being an entrepreneur, thereby enabling him to advise individuals as well as small businesses and corporate clients.

In February 2010, Neal was recognized as a top financial advisor and named to the LPL Financial Chairman's Club by LPL Financial, based on production in 2009. Neal has been interviewed extensively and is featured in the book "Trader's Secrets" (Target Press. 1999).
