It uses this network to distribute public and private offerings all over the world.
Much of Ascendant’s success is also attributed to Jeffry Schneider. In the last five years, he’s gone from employee just two professionals to employee more than thirty. During that same time, Ascendant has raised nearly $1 billion on behalf of its managers. Jeffry and his team use this capital to purchase any type of investment that offers marginal returns, such as real estate, auto dealerships, and tech companies.
The culture that Jeffry Schneider built around his company plays a large role in its success. Ascendant operates in a positive environment that encourages and relies on open dialogue and trust.

Transparency is so important to the company because it allows everyone to be involved. That’s also where the trust and open dialogue come into play. Rather than keep company concerns only within the high ranks, Schneider wants all his team members to be aware of the company’s current status so that they can better resolve the issue.
As for Schneider personal life, he’s a healthy philanthropist. Health has always been a part of his life, which is why he continues to participate in a number of marathons. He also enjoys working with numerous charities that focus on helping the less fortunate.
