Probe Financial Associates, Inc.
Probe Financial Associates, Inc. (PFA), provides the highest level of
expertise ever offered to investment managers in telecommunications and
relative IT sectors. It is the leading source of independent, unbiased
research for investors.
The primary issue in telecommunications/IT industry research is the vast
amount of complexity and change that characterize these industries. PFA's
experts have by far the most industry experience and the finest record
for correctly forcasting major changes.
Between them PFA's two founders, Al Boschulte and Victor Schnee, have:
major industry companies
an information services venture fund
awards for groundbreaking industry research from leading organizations
over 20 major studies of the industry
have been alone in calling every major turn in the industry in advance
for over 25 years
Co-founder Victor Schnee, a leading Wall Street analyst in the late 1970's,
became a highly prominent expert in the telecommunications industry research
community. He understood the excesses of the "Telecom Bubble"
of the late 1990's and repeatedly warned about it in writings.
Alfred Boschulte, former CEO of NYNEX Mobile and former executive of several
other telecommunication related companies, has become a leading industry
advisor. Mr. Boschulte decided to join Mr. Schnee because he has independently
observed that there is a growing desire among investment managers to directly
access a higher level of expertise in telecommunications and related fields.
PFA's mission is to provide investment managers with a detached, honest,
authoritative source of information and analysis of telecom and related
IT, which is highly responsive to managers' actual portfolio needs.
