Fellow actor Paul Carafotes tweeted, “Kevin Dobson a great and generous actor passed. I remember him for his friendship a gracious, open minded actor with ideas to augment a scene and didnt mind if ideas gave it toYOU. We had fun. @Carafotes12 @taiskates @lmvitale @hardy985 @take2radio @KnotsLanding @HowardStern.”

Dobson was born March 18, 1943, in Queens, New York. He served in the U.S. Army and worked for the Long Island Rail Road before pursuing acting.

After debuting on TV on the soap “The Doctors” in 1969, he made an uncredited appearance in the Jane Fonda drama “Klute” (1971). After a couple of years in small roles on TV, he won the role of Det. Bobby Crocker on “Kojak” after numerous auditions, appearing in all 117 episodes (1973-1978) of the classic cop drama opposite Telly Savalas. He returned for the 1990 TV-movie reunion “Kojak: It’s Always Something.”

Dobson specialized in dramatic TV movies, including “The Immigrants” (1978), “Hardhat and Legs” (1980), “Margin for Murder” (1981), and “Sweet Revenge” (1984), the latter with a very young Helen Hunt.

From 1982-1993, Dobson was handsome Mack MacKenzie on “Knots Landing,” one of TV’s most successful nighttime soaps, reprising the role on the 1997 miniseries “Knots Landing: Back to the Cul-de-Sac.”

He was also a regular on the series “Shannon” (1981-1982), “F/X: The Series” (1996-1997), “The Bold and the Beautiful” (2006-2007), and “Days of Our Lives” (2008), along with making numerous TV guest appearances through 2014. According to IMDb, he was attached to a sci-fi series called “12 to Midnight,” but it is unclear if he shot anything for it.

Dobson is survived by his wife of more than 50 years, Susan, and their children Mariah, Patrick and Sean.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today

Published

By

Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.

Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
