I'm managing editor for SA PRO. I work primarily on our PRO product, though also in support of our marketplace product and in a few other areas on the site. I'm always happy to hear from readers and contributors, whether to help with questions, hear your feedback, or learn how you're using the site. I've been working at SA since September 2012.
I've been investing for 6 years. I used to write articles for Seeking Alpha before becoming an editor (while I'm proud of the work I did, it probably would not have been up to our PRO standards, which is a good thing). I am probably one of SA's most frequent users, and have learned an immense amount from contributors, readers, and SA employees.
Beyond the market, I like reading, travel, writing, playing/writing/listening to music, and learning languages. Probably most relevant to ask me about SA, but you're welcome to get in touch on anything else as well.

Brian Gilmartin, is a portfolio manager at Trinity Asset Management, a firm he founded in May, 1995, catering to individual investors and institutions that werent getting the attention and service deserved, from larger firms. Brian started in the business as a fixed-income / credit analyst, with a Chicago broker-dealer, and then worked at Stein Roe & Farnham in Chicago, from 1992 - 1995, before striking out on his own and managing equity and balanced accounts for clients. Brian has a BSBA (Finance) from Xavier University, Cincinnati, Ohio, (1982) and an MBA (Finance) from Loyola University, Chicago, January, 1985. The CFA was awarded in 1994. Brian has been fortunate enough to write for the TheStreet.com from 2000 to 2012, and then the WallStreet AllStars from August 2011, to Spring, 2012. Brian also wrote for Minyanville.com, and has been quoted in numerous publications including the Wall Street Journal.
Trained as a scientific programmer, I worked on war game software for NORAD (North American Air Defense) and statistical software for Abbott Labs. For most of my 40-year career developed and sold financial and accounting software.
Was principal or founder of 3 small (5-30 employees) software companies.
Wrote a book on public pensions and a play that won an award in Writer Digest Magazine's annual writers competition, a contest that draws over 10,000 entries a year.
Moving along the continuum of time, I have been invested in the market successfully for 30+ years.
Part of the general diaspora from New York (Queens), and now an educator and self-taught (organic) rancher in West Central Texas I have always had a profound interest in geo-politics and history as it relates to economics. Possessing degrees in politics, electronic engineering, as well as education I have been fortunate to have traveled extensively and worked for several international firms, notably in Sweden and Canada before doing what amounts to missionary work in our public schools, as a teacher.
My investment philosophy is conservative, yet on occasion contrarian. For example commodities in the early 70's, presently high quality US dividend aristocrats presently - mixed with some well entrenched European securities that offer consistent dividends and growth upside. That said, I too believe long-term investment is the sine qua non for financial success - unless you are steeped in financial wizardry and luck, which I certainly am not. I have also constructed a firm inner ring of dividend aristocrats that allow my (outward) "concentric ring" to flourish. However, in a dangerously over bought market I have gathered the wagons and sold off those smaller European and global equities that have profited during our long bull run-up - while awaiting the inevitable 20 -30 % correction. I have always invested in dividend stocks, and will continue to do so; I do not "play the market". "Dividends are real money and do not lie" about a stocks overall performance. The goal always is to be equal to and greater than inflation - beyond the pablum of government disseminated statistics, to buy quality when others flee, to invest and not flip equities for a quick dollar, to hold on, but know intuitively by experience when to sell if, for example, a dividend is cut - or not.
I enjoy SA, and believe it is a positive forum for intelligent conversation concerning investment and economics.
A long-term investor, my investing philosophy revolves around assembling a diversified portfolio of high quality dividend paying stocks.
I have been investing for over 15 years and I am a CFA Charterholder.
I am interested in researching and writing unique articles that combine politics and finance. With a background in Political Science and Economics, I often look at the impact regulations have on the bottom line. I generally take a short perspective when looking at companies.
Too many companies get away with lying to investors and the public. I hope that my articles can shine some light on the misstatements made by various management teams and add to improved corporate governance in this country.
I am an investor and CFO for over 35 years who focuses on dividend growth investing (DGI) for the long term, particularly for building retirement income.
In addition to financial data, I concern myself with the quality of management and the long-term macro perspectives of the companies and industries in which I invest.
Independent banking research, focusing on large U.S., Australasian and European banks. I identify long and short ideas and trading strategies around special events (CCAR).
To benefit from independent insights and quality analysis from a banking insider - subscribe as a "real-time" follower above.
I hold a Graduate Diploma in Applied Finance and Investment (similar to CFA), and a Graduate Diploma in Financial Planning.
I have 30 years of personal investing experience, and 15 years of professional financial advising experience, including broking experience at ETrade Australia, 7 years as a Senior Financial Planner at Commonwealth Bank of Australia and 8 years at High Net Worth Financial Advising. My business is a mix of young clients growing their wealth, pre-retirees, and retirees wanting income, some growth, and safety.As a global investor I use a macro thematic approach searching for good value and/or high growth. I search the globe for great investments with a focus on Asia, Emerging and Frontier Markets as well as "trend investing". I assess a countries demographics and growth potential. Some trends I currently follow include Chinese shares going global, the rising Asian middle class, Electric Vehicles, Renewable Energy, Energy Storage, Smartphones, 3D printing, and personal robots.
I also love to invest in income producing investments that can grow over time and benefit from compounding....Included here are the near monopoly businesses such as the Stock Exchanges, and the high quality income producers.
I use direct shares, ETFs, mutual funds and some direct property investments.

I retired in 2006. I spent 30 years in the semiconductor industry. I have been a dividend investor for 25 years. Currently primary investment is in traditional dividend payers, most of which are discussed on seeking alpha. I also invest in preferreds. I stayed fully invested through internet bubble and financial crisis. Can't say I slept well in the recent crisis but I stayed in the market. Now glad I stayed in.
I am a retired CPA with 40+ years of investing principally in individual stocks and equity mutual funds. Currently our portfolio is allocated between short term fixed income, dividend/distribution paying equities and equity mutual funds. I am always on the look out for increasing dividend equities with a reasonable current yield.
I have over five years of experience in covering financial markets. I am interested in commodities, emerging markets, media & entertainment and technology.
As an investor, I always employ the top-down approach. My objective is to share my insights and investing ideas and also learn from other accomplished investors here.
Currently studying for a Masters in Oil and Gas Law , University of Aberdeen
Past: LLB Law (Hons) & Diploma in Professional Legal Practice,University of Aberdeen.
Self-taught in investing from the age of 17 and traded with leverage due to low available funds. From the age of 18 I have been managing an anglo-american share portfolio. Now manage for other family members too.
