Seth Tobias (April 8, 1963 – September 4, 2007) was an American hedge fund manager and financial commentator who made frequent appearances on the CNBC television programs Squawk Box and Kudlow & Company.
Early life and education
Tobias was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on April 8, 1963 and had four brothers, Samuel, Spence, Scott and Joshua. He was raised in Plymouth Meeting and graduated from Plymouth-Whitemarsh High School and from Boston University with a B.A. in finance.
He was the president of Circle T Partners, a company he founded in 1996 at age 32 after working for five years as portfolio manager and equity trader at JRO Associates.
Tobias' career began by processing trades for a then-unknown portfolio manager named Jim Cramer, who went on to host "Mad Money." Tobias impressed Cramer, but the job didn't last long. Tobias traded up to a position with the much larger JRO Associates hedge fund. Five years later, Tobias headed out on his own.
Tobias' first wife was Tricia Zocchi of South Jersey. At the time of his death, he was married to Filomena Tobias.
Tobias died on September 4, 2007, after drowning in his pool while under the influence of cocaine, alcohol and Ambien.
