The following testimonials are from company founders, chief investment officers, and peers. You can find these and additional recommendations published on my LinkedIn profile.
“First of all, I need to say that I was a fan of David’s writing when we were both covering investment funds at Pageant Media’s Absolute Return. During his time at Alternatives Watch, David has quickly adjusted to become our top freelance writer and his articles are always well received by our audience (a savvy lot). What makes David rise above much of the competition is that he knows investment
products and trading strategies very, very well. Because of his experience, he can add guidance and direction to almost any project to make it better. He knows how to attract, build, and engage an audience and this combination of skills is highly valued.” Susan Barreto, Managing Editor/Founder, Alternatives Watch
“I had the pleasure of working with David at Moody’s and S&P. David’s excellent work in the asset-backed commercial paper (ABCP) group writing research was extremely helpful to us on the marketing staff. We were able to grow the number of programs we covered and the number of paid investor subscribers because of it. Later, when David was at Thomson, we had a good relationship when his reportorial duties would cause him to call me for information on a story he was working on. David was professional, friendly and aggressive at the same time and the end result was always a fair, balanced, accurate piece.” Kieran McShane, Director of Market Engagement, S&P Global Ratings
“A very good reporter with solid understanding of financial issues.” Arturo Cifuentes, Past M.D. Securitization, Moody’s Investors’ Service/Senior Research Associate, Catholic University of Chile
“David is a pleasure to work with. He personifies a higher degree of ethical conduct and professionalism.” Eric Banks, Co-Head of CDO Trading, Bear Stearns/CEO/CIO, Tolis Advisors
“I worked with David at Thomson IFR. His bond reports had more actionable ideas and “inside baseball” than other media outlets consistently exceeding readers expectations. It’s exciting to see him tackle the Coronavirus economic wreckage in non-performing loans with trend reports. I highly recommend David to any news team. He simply works and cares the most.” Sheila Mullan, InTouch Capital, Senior Reporter, Treasury Markets
