David is an investment professional with more than 24 years experience. His career spans a wide spectrum of finance, ranging from that of a traditional Investment Advisor, to an exchange floor Trading Specialist, to Hedge Fund trader. His extensive background has given him the opportunity to trade on virtually every market in almost every country around the globe at some point in his career.
In addition to his professional career in the global capital markets, David also served for 17 years in the military, primarily with naval special operations. Not only did the military provide him with the fundamental underpinnings of discipline and self-motivation, but the experience ignited a passion for global affairs for him, which has easily translated over into the field of global finance. It’s given him a unique perspective on world affairs and the impact of global events on the financial markets.
Prior to joining Hansen & Associates, David worked for a large multinational bank, where he actively developed and executed equity, derivative and currency trading strategies for the bank’s investment management team. He also designed and managed a proprietary “portfolio insurance” product, which he used to hedge the bank’s investment portfolios against market declines. In that role, he managed all facets of the hedging process, including portfolio construction and all active trading.
David has now brought his knowledge and experience to Hansen and Associates, where he has applied his concepts to develop a range of investment products focused on mitigating investment risk and maximizing returns through tactical asset allocation.
