Sherry Pryor Witter
Sherry Pryor Witter is the Co-Founder, Managing Partner and Chief Investment Officer of the Witter Family Offices. Sherry co-founded their family offices in 2011 with her husband, Michael D. Witter (grandson of the late Dean Witter), for the purposes of compounding wealth and in turn, supporting philanthropy. She is responsible for overseeing all aspects of investing and operating activities involving their assets, while Michael focuses on their philanthropic mission.
Sherry has over two decades of investment experience across multiple asset classes including hedge funds, real estate, private equity, venture capital, and fine musical instruments. Though each of these asset classes has provided a strong and steady return, it is the investments in their liquid hedge fund and trading strategies that have materially outperformed.
After starting her first hedge fund in 1998, Sherry continued on to launch seven additional strategies in the alternative space. Though Sherry maintains her GP status in these funds, she does not accept any outside assets as they are capacity constrained. Further, her strategies are often limited by a short timeline on the trade opportunity. When she is not managing the day to day investment portfolio and operations, Sherry is frequently meeting with undiscovered traders, evaluating new strategies or speaking at Family Office and Investment conferences.
A native New Yorker, Sherry Pryor Witter began her finance career as a high school intern at Lazard Freres. Post-graduation, she became an analyst for Eddie Lampert at ESL Investments. Sherry Pryor Witter attended the University of Pennsylvania, studying finance and economics, and The Juilliard School (Pre-College Division). Sherry lives in New York with her two sons, and husband of over twenty years.
