Constance Teska, Principal, Pluscios Management
Ms. Teska is a principal of Pluscios Management LLC.
Prior to co-founding Pluscios, Ms. Teska was President of JPMorgan Capital Management (formerly Banc One and First Chicago) (the “Bank”), the Bank’s fund-of-hedge fund business, which invested both proprietary and client assets in portfolios of hedge funds. Ms. Teska was responsible for all facets of the business providing strategic direction, management, and leadership. As head of the Investment Committee she was responsible for portfolio construction, portfolio management, risk management, manager selection, due diligence, and on going manager monitoring. Ms. Teska was the founding member of this business and successfully managed it for nine years achieving top quartile performance. She also designed the alternative asset sales and marketing process for the Bank’s private wealth group.
In the 1990s, Ms. Teska, Senior Vice President, was part of the team that spearheaded an $8 billion proprietary investment business using up to 10% of Bank Capital and contributing up to 20% of total Bank revenue. The Corporate investment group’s strategy was to access the best managers, both internally and externally, through direct investments and investments in funds. The group initially entered the alternative asset class through investments in private equity, tax-oriented investments (e.g., leveraged leases, energy investments, etc.), structured value investments (e.g., CMBS, CDOs, etc.) and market value investments (e.g., hedge funds). Ms. Teska was instrumental in launching each investment class and served on the Investment Committee and Management Committee for each asset class.
Ms. Teska's career at JPMorgan and its legacy institutions spanned twenty-five years. During this time she was a frequent speaker on alternative assets at conferences and other industry events.
Ms. Teska received her M.B.A. from the Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University and her B.S. degree from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. She serves on the Board of Directors for the Northwestern University Settlement House and also served on the Board of the Chicago Chapter of Hedge Funds Care.
