Your Markets and Money Editors

To find out more about the men and women who bring you the real investments stories behind the news each week, browse this list of Markets and Money editors and contributors. You’ll soon discover they have a range of experience you can rely on to bring you the best opportunities in shares, real estate and a host of other markets. We trust they’ll broaden and deepen your understanding of the financial world you invest in too…and point out the tricks and hoaxes governments and hucksters like to try!

We will warn you of one thing, though, dear reader. The one thing you won’t find at Markets and Money is consensus. All of our editors are free to think for themselves and under no obligation to agree with anyone else. We have no party line, no advertisers to please, and no agenda to push. Our only aim is to bring you the best analysis and ideas the editors can find to make you smarter, richer and more successful. YOU can decide whose analysis you believe.

Leading the charge is our founder, Bill Bonner. A man of many talents, his entrepreneurial savvy, unique writings, philanthropic undertakings, and preservationist activities have all been recognised and awarded by some of America’s most respected authorities. Since 1999, Bill has been a daily contributor and the driving force behind Markets and Money.
