About the Author

David Bott is an accomplished financial analyst and writer, with years of experience in the financial markets. He considers himself a “portfolio surgeon” who takes an unhealthy portfolio and makes an endurance athlete out of it.

As such, he has produced healthy, enduring results for high echelon clients including major energy companies, hospitals and non-profits; senior corporate executives; and general counsels for multinational corporations.

But more than an analyst, Mr. Bott is a person who influences and persuades top ranking people; whose opinion is highly sought after; and whose judgment is respected and trusted.

During his most recent five-year tenure in the financial industry, Mr. Bott has fed his insatiable interest in international natural resource and emerging markets investing.

His ultimate goal is to become a national policy adviser, using his drive and untiring commitment to bring greater autonomy and dignity to the people of the developing world.
