Neil George

Neil George’s career in financial services began back in 1987 — recruited by Merrill Lynch International Bank directly from his MBA class at Webster University. There he served on various market regional teams throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas as a researcher, asset manager and securities trader.

He worked at Mark Twain Bank (now part of US Bank), where he co-founded the International Markets Division and later, Guinness-Flight (now part of Investec PLC), where he would serve as Chief Economist. Both roles affording him the opportunity to build international trade and brokerage platforms, launch a variety of investment products including mutual funds and deposit accounts, and manage a fixed-income mutual fund worth over $1 billion.

Neil is also an experienced bond trader, who, in the 1980s, successfully gambled on a New Zealand turnaround, at one point becoming the country’s single largest debt holder.

He retired from financial services in 2002 to launch his career as a full-time financial writer, researcher and analyst and over the years has served as the editor-in-chief of several award-winning investment services dedicated to finding Wall Street’s safest yields. His market commentary and insights have been featured in such prominent financial publications as The Wall Street Journal and Barron’s as well as on Bloomberg, CNN and NBC.
