Practical Portfolio Management LLC

Tony Kenck worked in the oil industry for 40 years. He started as a geophysicist, but eventually migrated to the dark side.

Since the late 90s, he tried to change the culture at Texaco and Chevron from an extremely de-centralized approach to a more centralized perspective. He was partially successful and, along the way, helped develop many of the portfolio tools, practitioners, and ways of thinking still in place. He has converted his experience and all the mistakes into the guide he wishes he’d had in 2000.
