Born August 18, 1958, in Meaford, Ontario to William and Patricia West, David spent his childhood in Meaford. After attending Wilfred Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario, David moved to Toronto to take a job with the Canadian Securities Institute. He developed a lifelong interest in investing and financial markets, which grew to include developing courses and teaching at the Canadian Securities Institute and Foran Financial. As a portfolio manager and investment consultant, David worked with R.N. Croft Financial Group Inc. before becoming a full-time freelance writer. His writing credits include stints as a regular columnist for The MoneyLetter and as Editor of The Money Reporter, both published by MPL Communications Ltd., and as a contributor to Canadian Business Online.
