Through extensive research and analysis of risk-adjusted strategies, Bido will strengthen Cognios Capital’s proprietary ROTA/ROME valuation approach and investment strategies.

Prior to American Century, Bido spent more than five years as a business process consultant at Andersen Consulting where he worked on high-profile clients, such as American Express and Sprint.
