Co-Head of Investment Strategy

Marcin Krolikowski is the Co-Head of Investment Strategy at Independence Financial Partners where he advises on market research and analysis, asset allocation, and portfolio construction, and conducts macroeconomic research.  His work helps clients build cost-effective, resilient, and robust portfolios. Previously, Marcin worked for Citigroup on their Emerging Markets Desk, trading primarily fixed income instruments.

Always passionate about finance and the economy, Marcin thrives on the industry’s ever-changing nature, which he compares to “trying to solve a puzzle that is forever transforming.” One of his strengths is his ability to remain rational when the market is not; another is his willingness to answer specific questions directly from clients.

He is an Associate Professor at Providence College, where he teaches corporate finance and investments at both the undergraduate and MBA levels.

Dr. Krolikowski serves on multiple boards, including the Board of Directors of the CFA Society in Providence. He is an Editorial Board Member of the Journal of Business Accounting and Finance and is actively involved in the community.  Having lived in Poland, South Africa and Oman, and now a resident of Providence, Marcin enjoys travelling, tennis and hiking in his free time.
