Jason and Jill DeLorenzo with their two sons and one daughter. The family owns and operates Ad Deum Funds in Chantilly, Virginia.
Hi! We are the DeLorenzo family, and we fully own and operate Ad Deum Funds. Our business is a full-service options specialty shop opened in 2018.
Our mission is to provide options-based investment services for active-minded investors that value virtue in trading.
As a small, specialty-focused business, we use the same high-quality tools as larger firms and offer hands-on service to make sure we meet clients' needs.
Jason D. DeLorenzo
Principal Owner and Member
I have been trading options since 2010. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Economics from Seton Hall University (2002) and my Master's degree in Economics from George Mason University (2017).
When I was trading stocks, I made a stock option move on a biotech catalyst and was successful - but it barely made any money. I immediately became interested in the vehicle, why it works, and why it doesn't work.
I saw that there were people earning money from this vehicle, and I wanted that to be me.
I took the initiative to get educated on stock options and was mentored by a CBOE market maker. I learned what options were all about and learned how to capture opportunity. From there, I read books and have subscribed to services that involved options.
On some stock trading message boards, I started contributing ideas using my knowledge of options. Participants began to notice in such a way that they were interested in me managing money for them. I then decided to take the path of setting up our own LLC and registering it as a Registered Investment Advisor; this setup allows me to offer the best services I can to clients.
Jill A. DeLorenzo
Chief Marketing Officer
I have spent my career building the leadership and support skills that I use to serve clients with Ad Deum Funds. I do not offer investment advice as I am not a RIA Representative. I earned my Bachelor's degree in International Studies from Elon University (2009).
My goal is to take complex ideas and make them easy for you to understand. This includes making our communications accessible to a wide variety of audiences, including our monthly fundamental and technical newsletters.
When Jason approached me with the idea of starting our own firm, we felt called to make it a family business. Our family has united our skills to offer our clients the best services we can.
