Mr. Gerber serves as a member of the United States Agency for International Development’s Partnership for Peace Fund Advisory Board. From 2017 to 2019, he was a member of the Director of National Intelligence’s Senior Advisory Group (SAG). In December 2008, President Bush appointed Mr. Gerber Vice Chairman of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

Mr. Gerber was a member of the U.S. Honorary Delegation attending the celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the State of Israel in Jerusalem, and served on the AIPAC National Board of Directors from 2004 to 2016.

Mr. Gerber has more than 30 years of investing experience in multiple securities classes and derivatives across a broad range of strategies. In 2008, he developed the Gerber Statistic, which measures the co-movement of financial assets, enabling early detection of concentration risks and insufficient diversification within an absolute return portfolio. Later, after many years in collaboration with Harry Markowitz, the Nobel Prize-winning economist and father of Modern Portfolio Theory (MPT), research was completed to optimize the modern portfolio construct by replacing historical covariance with the Gerber Statistic. This groundbreaking paper was published in the Journal of Portfolio Management of February 2022.
