About Dave Fry
Seeing the need in 1999, Dave created the ETF Digest Investment Newsletter which was launched in early 2000. At the time ETFs were in the backwater of investment choices for individuals and institutional investors. One thing became certain following the dotcom bubble and some mutual fund scandals the need for ETFs became apparent.
As an author Dave wrote Create Your Own ETF Hedge Fund, A DIY Strategy for Private Wealth Management published by Wiley Finance in 2008 and The Best ETFs: U.S. Equities, A Companion Guide to Building Your ETF Portfolio [Kindle Edition] published in 2012.
Dave was among the very first to see the need for an online publication that provided individual investors and financial professionals with trading tools, relevant market information and actionable guidance and advice on ETF investing.
In July of 2009, Fry was named in the ETF Hall of Fame as one of the Top 25 people who revolutionized the ETF industry and guided ETF investing early before they gained widespread acceptance among all breeds of investors.
Are there too many ETFs now?
Dave believes Wall Street new product engineers have seized the ETF space blurring product differences especially in the index linked areas.
Going forward he is dropping the use of the ETF Digest label in favor of a simple blog, “Dave Fry’s Musings”. It includes an eclectic mix of his overall views from investing, politics, and his overall comments of life from the fast to slow lanes.
Coming soon: "The Markets I Knew" and a Hawaii memoir “Malaekahana” with both being released during 2017 and 2018.
