Location: Chicago, Illinois, United States of America
Howard E. Hallengren, President and Chairman at Falcon Real Estate Investment Management Ltd., has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of investing.
Always interested in the stock market and investments, Mr. Hallengren pursued an education at Princeton University, graduating cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in English literature. Once completing his degree, he was offered a job in the investment division of the First National Bank of Chicago, which he thought would be a fulfilling career path. After earning a Master of Business Administration at the Booth School of Business in the University of Chicago in 1958, Mr. Hallengren began his career as a chief investment officer at the First National Bank of Chicago from 1970 to 1977. While there, he opposed the popular investment philosophy prevalent at the time that all one needed to buy were the “nifty fifty” stocks. When that craze collapsed, Business Week Magazine wrote an article on Mr. Hallengren, saying that he has had been “vindicated.” He remembers the feature fondly and still considers it the highlight of his career.
Mr. Hallengren then moved into International Private Banking at Chase Manhattan Bank from 1982 to 1991 before founding his company, Falcon Real Estate Investment Management, Ltd., with his partner, Jack Miller. Over an impressive career, he has learned to always remember when making an investment in common stocks or real estate that that investment should be based on solid fundamentals instead of the initial price paid. That insight, combined with his hard work and determination, is what brought Mr. Hallengren much success.
Notably, Mr. Hallengren is the author of “Reminiscences of an Accidental Embezzler,” published in 2016 and an impressive showcase of his expertise in investment banking for high profile clients. In 2019, he was recognized with an award of support by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago. Looking ahead, Mr. Hallengren hopes that in five years he can continue to do everything that he does today, including writing books and getting involved in charitable organizations.
