Dave has spent the past 20 years as a financial research analyst on Wall Street, where he analyzed and valued the debt and equity securities of corporations. With a big focus on distressed securities, he gained an appreciation of risk and the importance of being on the lookout for multi-sigma (low frequency but high impact) events. He is a chartered financial analyst (CFA) and holds an MBA in finance from UCLA and a BS in psychology from Johns Hopkins.
I am most excited to work on projects that… allow me to help increase the financial and business communities’ focus on nuclear risk.
I am looking for partners that can help me… harness some of the momentum and methods of impact/ESG (environmental, social, governance) investing and expanding such activities to nuclear risk.
A moment when I felt most inspired in my work was… when I, along with a colleague, found obscure industry data that allowed us to accurately predict a company’s results well ahead of others.
Innovations in my field that I am most excited to work on… include new ways of understanding and quantifying risk and reward.
