My name is Vivian Lewis. I was born to immigrant German Jewish refugee parents in New York, so I started out as a multilingual baby and won the American Association of Teachers of French prize for high school grads in my year. I went on to study European history, first at Harvard, where I was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and from which I graduated magna cum laude, and then at University of California, Berkeley where I got an master's degree. I married Paul Lewis, a financial journalist then with the Financial Times (of London), and moved to Brussels where I pursued my PhD at the University of London. When my money ran out, I went to work for McGraw-Hill World News Common Market Bureau and never looked back. Journalism turned out to be my forte, not academia. I then went to work for The Economist in Paris followed by The Sunday Times (London).
When we lived in Washington, I took a break from journalism and worked for the Joint Economic Committee and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Then we returned to Europe, again living in Paris, where I was freelancing as an economic journalist. In this role I covered a half dozen countries in Europe.
We then moved back in the U.S. again, this time back to New York where my husband became U.N. Bureau Chief for The New York Times. I found it hard to get freelance work because my background was mainly European.
So in 1990 I started Global Investing, initially a print newsletter - now it's a blog. We started out covering the expanding market for American Depositary Receipts and Yankee bonds, adding open-end and later exchange-traded funds with an international bent later. Because there were so many ideas you could only buy directly on foreign markets, in 1996 I decided to start what later became Global Investing Pro, for institutional and high-net-worth investors, but it is now dormant.
My husband and I are grandparents to five.
