Haas El Farra

Head trader

A native of Newport Beach, Haas earned his degree in economics and humanities at Cal State Northridge, and his MBA in finance at UCLA’s Anderson School of Management. He started his Wall Street career by standing in front of the New York Stock Exchange for two weeks passing out his resume. The approach worked. Haas worked for 12 years as a hedge fund trader in New York and LA, and as an investment banker in real estate and health care.

As head trader at Westmount, Haas works in concert with our team of portfolio managers to execute equity trades on behalf of clients with speed and precision. In his personal time, he loves world history, Porsches and traveling in Asia.
