I am a retired baby boomer who enjoyed writing in my former profession. I have been an active investor and follower of the stock market for many years. Now that I am retired from my former profession I am going to give a shot at writing for Seeking Alpha in an effort to join both interests into one new endeavor.
I am European - Danish in fact - I have worked 20 years as CEO of (for EU standards) heavy and hi-tec industries in Denmark, Germany, Sweden and Iceland, followed by 15 years as Chairman of various similar industries, - US company included. (Conclusion: I'm getting pretty old!)

I am less than 10 years from retirement and want to firm up the details. I have been a long and consistent saver but with no "business plan" as of yet. I have no financial background but enjoy learning about different investing philosophies. I want to be able to help my children understand these concepts so they can be better prepared for their future.
