David Frazier has a diverse background in the investment securities industry and has invested in the financial markets for more than 25 years.
After completing his undergraduate studies in economics, finance, and accounting, he joined the Dun & Bradstreet Corp. in 1987 as a business analyst, with the goal of improving his understanding of the ways in which companies can profitably employ different financial and operating strategies.
From 1989 to 1991, Frazier worked in sales and marketing for a boutique financial planning firm. He then joined Waterhouse Securities Inc. (now TD Ameritrade Holding Corp.) in 1992 as a Series 7 investment representative. While at Waterhouse, Frazier began to recognize that individual investors often react emotionally and in counterproductive ways to the vagaries of the stock market, rather than analyzing the reasons that they make or lose money on a particular investment.
In 1993, Frazier became a sales representative (and later, the national sales manager) for a stock mutual fund managed by William O'Neil and Co., the publishers of Investor’s Business Daily. While working under the direction of Bill O'Neil, the fund's chairman who's made millions of dollars investing in the stock market since the early 1960s, Frazier learned how to better select profitable investments in stocks of fast-growing companies that the major Wall Street investment brokerage firms often overlook.
From July 1996 to March 1998, he was an investment research analyst at an investment consulting firm that provided advice to affluent individual investors. From April 1998 to March 2000, he was a merchant banking analyst and financial publications director at Magnum Financial Group, a corporate financial advisory and consulting firm that provided investment banking, business consulting, and merger and acquisition advisory services to both start-up and small publicly traded companies.
From April 2000 to March 2004, Frazier was an equity research and investment banking analyst at a private investment banking and corporate finance firm headquartered in Los Angeles.
Frazier has provided investment research and analytical writing services to several money management firms and investment publications, including Dan Sullivan's The Chartist; Stephen Leeb's The Complete Investor, Emerging Investments, and Leeb's IPO Insight; and The Flex-Funds Family of Mutual Funds.
Frazier has passed the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD) Series 7, 63, and 65 exams. He received his BS degree in business administration and management from Virginia Commonwealth University with a major in finance and a minor in economics, and he has taken numerous graduate courses in finance and accounting at Harvard University and the University of California at Los Angeles.
