Ken McCabe/Axiom Investors

As the vice president equities trader of Axiom Investors, Ken McCabe trades domestic and international equities and foreign exchange across all of the company’s long only and long short strategies. In total, he has nearly 20 years of experience in the financial services industry.

Ken graduated magna cum laude with a degree in finance from Pace University and later acquired an M.B.A. in finance from the University of Connecticut. Prior to joining Axiom, he was a vice president international equities trader at Citigroup.

Born in White Plains, New York, Ken is a first- generation Irish American. His parents were raised on farms – his mother in Kilrush, Co. Clare, and his father in Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan. “Growing up,” he says, “a typical Sunday morning was spent with family listening to Fordham’s WFUV Irish radio program, going to mass, and then watching football at Gaelic Park in the Bronx.” Today, he is a member of the Gaelic-American Club in Fairfield, Connecticut.

Ken lives with his wife, Annette, and daughters, Ashley and Caitlin.
