Dave Reid

Dave Reid, CA, is a financial whiz with a penchant for straight-forward, practical investment strategies. After years of sharing his insights with family, friends and clients, Dave decided to write a book about what he knows best — low-fee, self-managed investments that don’t require constant attention. He refers this approach as a “gone fishing portfolio.”

Dave has a long history with Bungalo Books. His original firm (Reid and Wyngaarden of Kingston, Ontario) provided our newly minted publishing house with all manner of accounting services when it launched in 1986. (And those services continue up to the present through his original partner, Dan Wyngaarden.) Disinterested in keeping track of other people’s balance sheets, Dave followed his interest in financial markets and real estate — making his expertise available to others lucky enough to know him.

Dave claims that his Financial Intelligence book is the extent of his publishing ambition but that is probably what David (The Wealthy Barber) Chilton said too. When he’s not sailing the high seas in his fabulous yacht (just kidding), Dave lives in a rural neighbourhood of Kingston in eastern Ontario.
