Meet the Haugen Equity Signals Team

Tom Fees


For the past 15 years the expected return factor models used by Haugen Custom Financial Systems and its successor, Haugen Equity Signals, LLC have been regarded as among the best in the industry. While Bob Haugen was alive, Tom was the one in the background who took Bob’s ideas and made them come to life. As a result, few people have Tom’s level of expertise in programming, maintaining and running computer models that make accurate stock predictions. Today Tom is running the company, combining his skills as a software developer who has extensive involvement in this very niche market with his 18+ years of executive experience running his own information technology consulting firm.
