Vantagepoint "Delivers The Good" in the 3rd annual food drive

Delivering The Good

We held our annual Food Drive in honor of my younger brother, Lee, at the beginning of Q1.  The pandemic required that my team be very creative when it came to donating and they definitely rose to the occasion.

I asked traders to take a guess at how many pounds of food my team would donate.  We had a wide variety of guesses and some of our traders had some massive faith in us. I’m pleased to share with you that a newer Vantagepoint family member, Brent S., came the closest.

My team donated almost 2,500 pounds of food! 

The Vantagepoint team donated over 2,500 pounds of food in honor of Lee Mendelsohn.

This makes a huge difference in our community; many people here were struggling in the midst of the pandemic. We were able to donate over 800 pounds of food to THREE local food banks.

My team continues to amaze me every day.  Brent, our top guesser, has also noticed too. He recently posted on a national board about us, “Congratulations Lane on such a magnificent organization. Your awards are duly deserved. My best to you and your team.”

That post meant a lot to all of us!  I think what was most telling about our food drive was how much it meant to my team to be able to make a difference in so many lives.

Changing lives is something we love doing here at Vantagepoint.  We hear from traders every day who are using Artificial Intelligence from our predictive forecasts to upgrade their trading and nothing motivates my team more! It’s a joy that we can pay our successes forward and help those in our community who need a little extra right now.

Vantagepoint President Lane Mendelsohn receives Best Places to Work Award from the Tampa Bay Business Journal

Our Commitment to Our Team Wins Awards Again, But This Year It Carries Extra Meaning

On Wednesday, April 21st, we were part of an online awards celebration with the Tampa Bay Business Journal celebrating the Best Places to Work.  We were all thrilled when Vantagepoint AI was recognized as #4 in Large Workplace category. 

Vantagepoint President Lane Mendelsohn receives Best Places to Work Award from the Tampa Bay Business Journal

We’ve moved up the ranks over the years starting in a category for small companies with a handful of employees.  Our recognition this year alongside many national firms doing business in the Tampa Bay Area is a milestone for us.

And, I have to say, this year’s win is also especially meaningful to me.  COVID-19’s impact on our community and the challenge of maintaining our company culture while our team was deployed to working from home required some creativity, ingenuity and innovation.  That my team was able to flourish in the midst of unusual conditions speaks volumes about our Vantagepoint family bond and our exceptional leadership team.

This year’s rankings, based on employee surveys, were especially close.  Tampa Bay is an up and coming, dynamic market in the country; the competition for all-star talent is fierce.  As a business owner, I’m honored to be recognized for our care of our team and our culture alongside some of the titans of business in our country.  I’m so proud of my team, their exuberance for changing lives, and their commitment to our traders.

It’s such a unique time we are all walking through.  My team is working from their homes, the awards ceremony was virtual…and still, it means so much to us.

We all consider it an honor to serve our traders and be a resource for them to help create the life they want with our software.

Lane Mendelsohn, President of Vantagepoint AI, LLC, is featured in Technically Speaking magazine from CMT.

My Recent Interview with CMT’s Technically Speaking

Many people search for years to find their true passion. I was lucky, I knew what mine was at 5 years old. I loved the markets and learning how I could analyze them. Many people would think my interest in the markets was because my dad is a titan of the Fintech industry; but it was more that as my interest in the markets grew, my father exposed me to many additional aspects of the markets. Analysis and charts were definitely my passion.

At 13 years old, I was certified by the Charted Market Technician® (CMT®) Association which was (and still is) a huge honor.  CMT® designation marks the highest education within the discipline and is the preeminent designation for practitioners of technical analysis worldwide.

I was delighted to be featured in CMT’s monthly magazine, Technically Speaking.

Lane Mendelsohn, President of Vantagepoint AI, LLC, is featured in Technically Speaking magazine from CMT.

Please tell us what you do professionally.

I am the President of VantagePoint AI, a trading software company that applies artificial intelligence (specifically neural networks), which my father founded in 1979.  As President, I oversee all aspects of the company, including R&D, sales, and customer support.  I really enjoy collaborating with our Research and Development team.

Before COVID 19, our company sponsored several trading conferences each year for our customers where they were able to share knowledge and benefit from interacting with professional traders who have become experts with our software. We’ve been recognized as one of the best places to work both locally, statewide, and nationally for over 10 years.  This past year, I was singled out by Fortune Magazine as Leader of the Year for leading and growing our team, and for building and maintaining a phenomenal company culture.

How did you get there?  School, internships, strategic plan or just luck, parents got you a job?

My path has been a little unconventional.  In the early 1980s, my father would read Stocks and Commodities Magazine and Futures Magazine to me, kind of as bedtime stories.  In that way my father was already educating me about the financial markets and about the financial industry.  Even though I was just a little kid, he ignited the passion in me about the financial markets and technical analysis like some dads do with their kids involving football and baseball.  For me, it was all about the financial markets and to an extent still is.

At six years old, my dad gave me my first “professional” job.  Looking back on it now, it was the beginning of my career; that job was more than just the task that he had asked me to perform — I was “our facilities manager.” It was a fancy title for janitor, but I had a responsibility.  I was taking out the trash, cleaning the restroom and vacuuming.  This exposed me to the organization and the handful of employees of my father’s company.  After school I was a fly on the wall in the office.  I watched how things were done and listened in on conversations – and through osmosis I was learning both about entrepreneurship, trading and the financial markets all at once.

At seven years old, I was promoted.  My father gave me the important task of formatting floppy disks.  Initially I got paid five cents per disk but did such a great job that later on my compensation per disk was increased.  My father opened an IRA account for me when I was very young, so I was able to fund my account starting at a very young age.

By high school, I was even more involved in the company daily.  Fortunately, as fate would have it, the principal of my high school in Florida had been a commodities trader and broker in Chicago years earlier, still traded and knew of my father’s reputation in the industry.  He told my father that I could be excused from attending school anytime to accompany my father on trips to financial industry events.

My father has been a member of the CMT Association since the 1980s.  He encouraged me to join as well.  So, in 1993 at just 13 years old, I became a member of the CMT Association.

In 1995, at fifteen, I developed our company’s first website.  I got very excited about the Internet and HTML programming.  I realized that having a website would be a tremendous benefit to our company in promoting our trading software.

So, I can literally say I started at the bottom of the company and worked my way In 2018, I was promoted to President. This was a tremendous milestone in my life and an honor to hold the position that my father had held since 1979.

Who was an early mentor in your career?

My father, Louis Mendelsohn, has been my lifelong mentor – not only in my career but also, in my personal life.  He has shown me how to be an ethical business owner.  He’s shown me how to become financially successful while putting integrity and high ethics over making money.  He has shown me by example how to be a great father to my own children and he has shown me how to be a caring husband and a true friend.

What book/author was most influential in helping you understand TA?

When I was 13 or so, my father handed me a book and said, “This is something that you could read and understand — it will make sense to you and you’ll enjoy it.” That book was The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham.

Another book I have a lot of familiarity with is the 2004 edition of John Murphy’s Intermarket Analysis – Profiting from Global Market Relationships.  I’ve known John since I was a teenager.

What do you like to do when you are not looking at markets?

Many people are surprised to find that my lifestyle juxtaposes high-tech, technology, artificial intelligence and technical analysis with nature and agriculture. I own a 75-acre cattle ranch adjacent to my parents’ property. I enjoy tractor work, working with my hands, buying, and selling cattle, and involving my daughters in agriculture as well.

I find I relax (both mentally and physically) when I’m “working” the ranch, it gives me time to think, relax, and decompress, with nothing but the sounds of nature all around.  So, having the ranch as a hobby has been a phenomenal way to counterbalance everything I do in the office.

My greatest joy is my family; not only providing for them financially but also providing experiences for them.  Being able to travel all over the world has given my kids the opportunity to expand their horizons.  It gives me tremendous satisfaction that we can create such wonderful memories together as a family.  That “investment” is priceless.

What brought you to the CMT Association?

As I mentioned, I became a member of the CMT Association in 1993 when I was only 13 years old on the encouragement from my father.  That allowed him to bring me to member-only conferences on technical analysis around the country.  When I attended those conferences, it afforded me great father-son time.  It also allowed me to be a fly on the wall, listening to conversations and panel discussions, and interacting with industry professionals and leaders.

What it the most useful benefit of membership for you?

The most beneficial aspect of being a member of the CMT Association has been the friendships and relationships I’ve developed over the decades as a result of attending the CMT Association annual conferences.

I can remember many CMT Association meetings from the past, like those on Marco Island and the Saddlebrook resort in Florida, as well as other conferences in Chicago and New Orleans.  In the evenings, my father would take me out for dinner with a couple of other colleagues.  Being able to listen to their stories and talk about how technical analysis has evolved since the advent of personal computers and trading software, was just as important as the meetings.  These experiences were a significant part of my formative years and of great value to me.

As an adult, I’m able to appreciate even more than before how gracious these people were with me.  I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who respected me, even though I was just a kid.  It’s something that I am very appreciative and thankful for.  To have had people like John Murphy, John Bollinger, Michael Kahn, Stephen Poser, Jake Bernstein, Larry Williams, Darrell Jobman and Jack Schwager, to name just a few titans in the industry as my role models during my formative years is incredible.

The art of technical analysis is vital to helping traders succeed.  Our goal is to help traders of all skill levels enjoy the benefits of our groundbreaking technical analysis processes in a way that is easy, fast, and helpful.

Simply put, I love seeing the tool we have to offer empowering traders daily!

National Philanthropy Day Brings Extra Donations From Vantagepoint AI

Over the years, we’ve been proud to support Shriners Hospitals for Children; and we’ve built strong bonds with our patient ambassadors.  We believe in giving more than just money. We put our heart into our relationship with Shriners. My daughters, Rachael and Abigail, have developed some special friendships, and my entire team cherishes their own personal connections that have developed with these amazing kids.

This year, as our Vantagepoint Family increased in size, expanded our corporate giving to include The Children’s Cancer Center. Talk about a group of strong and wonderful children! Even throughout the pandemic, we have been able to donate to both organizations regularly and equally.

This year, I wanted to surprise my team with something special in honor of National Philanthropy Day.  I set some lofty goals for the team for the 4th quarter and they proceeded to achieve them.  On Wednesday I announced that due to their added efforts, we would not only be making our regular donations to both organizations, but that we would be making an additional donation for the month to each.

When I let our partners and ambassadors know what was coming, they wanted to join in with me in a message for our Vantagepoint family, and share with all of us how much it means to them to have our ongoing support, especially when so many other companies have had to pull back.
