Biography

Dylan Minor’s professional experience began in the field of investment management at companies that included Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo. Not long after, he opened his own wealth management firm, Omega Financial Group, which has about $250 million of capital responsibility and continues to help clients with a variety of life-planning issues, ranging from retirement plans and the sale of a business to a change in marital status or maximizing one's financial resources. He also founded and manages a hedge fund, Argos Total Return Fund, and serves as an expert consultant with numerous companies.

With an increasing interest in investment research and analysis, Minor earned a PhD at UC Berkeley and was subsequently appointed to teaching and research positions at Harvard Business School and Kellogg School of Management. His academic work has been focused on the field of Strategic Human Capital with primary interest in the intersection of social responsibility, strategic human resource management, business ethics and financial performance. “This draw comes from my wanting to think about business more holistically,” Minor says.

His research has been featured in a variety of media, including: ABC, Academic minute, Barron's, CBS, Chicago Tribune, CNBC, Financial Times, Forbes, Fortune, Harvard Business Review, Harvard Business School Working Knowledge, Harvard Gazette, INC.com, NPR (All Things Considered), Quartz, USA Today, Wired, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post.

A first generation college graduate, Minor (whose first name is pronounced Die-Lynn) has a penchant for the game of tennis.
