Welcome to my Blog!

With my wife's help, I've begun my own blog.

Working for a $7 billion pension fund has plenty of benefits. I get access to the top money managers and portfolio strategies used on Wall Street (which is exiting for me). I have regular communications with money managers at Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, and JPMorgan, to name a few. I've learned a great deal and I think this has been very helpful for our family. But then I was thinking (rather, my wife was making fun of me for not knowing how to blog) that I could share my views and ideas with friends and family in a more efficient way--that I could spread the wealth (disclaimer: by "wealth" I am referring to ideas, not actual money). So, on this blog I plan to explain financial events, strategies, and ideas with the intent to bring everyone up-to-speed on the financial world around us and what Wall Street is really saying. I figure at least this way you won't have to read what we in the business call "Financial Pornography." Feel free to ask questions or ask advice.

These are my three sons.
Pretty cute.

I saw the word pornography in the post and thought this was going to be a sweet blog. Now I realize I was tricked.

Very cool. I look forward to reading more, especially when I get back to the U.S. and have to spend a lot of time thinking about the markets... aka when I start a real job like the rest of you. :)
