John J. Richard, Associate

John has joined TAB Consulting in 2008 as an Associate to work with our team assisting in litigation support related to security matters. John has the depth and breadth of knowledge needed to simplify the complexities of the fixed income market for both individual and class action matters in this area.

For the past ten-plus years, John served as a Senior Fixed Income Portfolio Manager for his clients at State Street Global Advisors in Boston, MA. His clients included a well-known list of some of the largest defined contribution plans in the United States. Within these client portfolios, John's primary focus was on the preservation of investors' capital. To this end, the emphasis in these strategies involved intensive and exhaustive research on the underlying collateral within any given security. John was an investor for clients in security types ranging from unsecured corporate credit to securitized structures collateralized by residential and commercial mortgages, auto loans, and credit card receivables, to name a few.

John built upon his experiences in Portland, OR at the Laughlin Group of Companies as a fixed income portfolio manager (a boutique fixed income manager) and at a mortgage brokerage firm originating primarily residential mortgages. This experience in the primary mortgage market lent useful insights into the credit quality of underlying collateral in the securities market over the past twelve years.

John received his Bachelor of Arts Degree cum laude in Economics from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA where he also spent time abroad at Oxford University studying Economics and History. John also was Valedictorian of his class at Babson College in Wellesley, MA where he earned his Masters of Business Administration with extensive coursework in real estate development and finance. John is a Chartered Financial Analyst and a member of the Boston Security Analysts Society.
