He is Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA), a holder of the Certificate of Quantitative Finance designation (CQF), a Firm Risk Manager (FRM) and a Certified Public Accountant (CPA).

Before returning to New York in 2013, Edward spent most of his professional career working outside of the United States including long assignments in London, Paris, Tokyo and Hong Kong.
Edward is a recognized expert in global financial markets, and he is a frequent contributor to numerous business publications and online journals. Edward regularly lectures and leads seminars and financial training modules on topics of importance for global capital market participants, including the impact of economic regulation on the formation of asset prices.
He is an active proponent of an independent, empirical, research-driven approach to asset allocation and security selection. Edward primarily explores the main developed markets in the United States, Europe, and Asia for investment opportunities, but he will also search for rewarding prospects in less developed and emerging markets. His core investment philosophy is to build and protect real wealth, requires favoring savings over consumption, minimizing transaction costs and deferring tax consequences of investment decisions. Investors are best served by establishing a long-term plan that is consistent with the investor's goals and risk preferences that embed realistic expected return and volatility assumptions.
