With 46 years in the investment industry and as a CFA Charterholder, I have founded a very successful Canadian investment management firm, Sceptre Investment Counsel, been the Director of Investment Research at Merrill Lynch Canada, and built and managed my current research firm, Strategic Analysis Corporation. SAC applies the theoretical discoveries, termed Accounting Dynamics, of the late Dr. Verne Atrill to the capital markets, as well as currency and sovereign solvency analysis. I appear regularly on business television and perhaps I am best known across Canada for my forecast that Nortel Networks would suffer a massive price collapse in June of 2000.
