Brian Bloch started off his career as a business academic, first teaching economics and then international business. He has an honours degree in economics, and a master's and doctorate degrees in business administration.

After many years of academic research, Brian found journalism to be much more rewarding and satisfying. Brian's initial journalistic work was in general management, and he still writes in this area, as well as on university issues for the Times Higher Education in London. However, his main focus is now financial.

Brian's work has also been published in the U.K. for Bloomberg Money, the Financial Times, the Guardian and Compliance Monitor. His work has also appeared on Moneyweb, a South African-based web publication.



Brian's particular interests lie in the area of risk and how to control it, asset allocation, and the legal aspects of investment, such as suitability and compliance. Brian lives in Germany.
