Timothy Galbraith/Bear Stearns Asset Management

Tim Galbraith is a Managing Director at Bear Stearns. Galbraith joined Bear Stearns Asset Management in 2001 as an equity research analyst overseeing software and technology with the New Castle Funds. He has also worked as an analyst with the Bear Stearns Fund of Hedge Funds group. Currently, he is in charge of the manager selection process for HedgeSelect, the hedge fund platform business out of Bear Stearns.

Tim traces his Irish roots to his mother’s side. Hailing from County Limerick, the Sextons were early settlers of Connecticut. At the age of 21 Galbraith set out to reclaim his Irish heritage, spending the summer hitchhiking through Ireland. Tim told Irish America, “My ‘thumbs up’ salute to the Irish people left an indelible impression and my travels inspired me to write my college thesis on the Anglo-Irish Accord of 1985.”

A graduate of Claremont McKenna College, Tim received his MBA from Columbia University. He lives in New York with his wife Jill Slansky, who is a senior counsel at the US Securities and Exchange Commission. They have two children, Madeline and Jack.
