Mohamed A. Jalloh, known to his friends by his nickname, Moh’m, is the founding Managing Director of Bridgedal Capital Management, LLC, a financial services company based in suburban Washington, D.C., USA.

 

He also serves as the Regional Manager in the state of Maryland for Synergy Investment Group, LLC, the first independent nationwide investment brokerage firm in the USA to effectively merge the benefits of a full service Wall Street firm and the advantages of an online broker.

Mr. Jalloh started his career in financial management at the Sierra Leone Produce Marketing Board in 1978, where he ended his lengthy exemplary service to his native country in 1992 as Head of the Economic and Planning Department. He branched out into financial services as an independent General Agent in suburban Washington, D.C., USA, in 1993, representing some of America’s leading financial services firms, including Mass Mutual, Walnut Street Securities, Inc., and Mutual of Omaha. From 1999 to 2001, Mr. Jalloh earned a coveted membership in the financial services industry’s elite Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT) (www.mdrt.com), which admits only the top 6% of financial services professionals in the world.

Mohamed Jalloh managed a multi-million dollar investment portfolio for corporations and high net worth individual investors at the Bethesda, Maryland office of the largest private bank in the world — UBS Financial Services, Inc. Headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, UBS has assets of over $2 trillion. Mr. Jalloh was recognized in the October, 2004 edition of the firm’s 66,000-employee circulation magazine, Financial Advisor, for his exemplary performance as a financial advisor. He was invited to join Synergy Investment Group, LLC, in 2005.

Mohamed Jalloh is licensed by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as a General Securities Principal, and authorized to manage investments for corporations and individuals in those states of the USA for which he holds security licenses. He holds the Series 7, 24, 63, 65, and 66 securities licenses. He is also the holder of Life, Health and Long Term Care insurance licenses. Mr. Jalloh is a graduate of Washington State University, where he earned MBA and Master of Accounting degrees as an AFGRAD (African Graduate Fellowship Program) scholar. He obtained a post-graduate diploma at America’s best business school — Northwestern University’s renowned Kellogg Graduate School of Management — in 1984. In addition, Mr. Jalloh holds a B.Sc (Honors) degree in Economics from Fourah Bay College, where he had the privilege of making history twice. In 1973, Mohamed Jalloh became the youngest student ever admitted to FBC, and in 1978, he earned the honor of becoming the first Sierra Leonean to graduate with a B.Sc (Hons) Econ., with a major in accounting.

Mr. Jalloh has been listed in Marquis Who’s Who in Finance in America, as well as Who’s Who in the World. An extremely patriotic Sierra Leonean and promoter of self-esteem among Africans, Mohamed Jalloh has spent most of his life empowering Africans through his internationally published writings and philanthropy. His first article, "Foreign Aid: A Curse or Blessing?" was published in Freetown in 1979 by We Yone, then the leading newspaper in Sierra Leone. Since then, in The Washington Post and the London-based West Africa weekly newsmagazine, among other publications, Mr. Jalloh has written extensively about the causes of, and solutions to, the problem of underdevelopment in African countries. In particular, he has focused on the role of Western countries and other Western entities, in addition to that of African leaders and other indigenous officials, in creating Africa’s problems.

In 2005, Mohamed Jalloh, in partnership with two other Sierra Leonean professionals in the U.S. – Jonathan M. Rose, an executive at 3M, in the state of Minnesota, and Minkailu Jalloh, an engineer at IBM in the state of New York, founded a non-profit organization, the Sierra Leone Children’s Educational Fund (SLCEF), dedicated to providing full scholarships for academically promising Sierra Leonean and Liberian children, from elementary school through college.

Mohamed Jalloh lives in Gaithersburg, Maryland with his wife and two children. His hobbies include music, walking, reading, writing, cricket and playing the guitar.
