A veteran of the investment services industry since the mid-1990s, David Dierking has been writing about investment strategies using ETFs and mutual funds since 2007. Originally published in the Milwaukee Business Journal, he now contributes regularly for a half dozen investment websites, including Seeking Alpha,, ETF Trends, and ETF Daily News.

Quote from David Dierking

"It's hard to feel like you're getting unbiased investment advice when so much of that advice can be driven by commissions and fees that go to brokers and financial advisors. I like to be that unbiased source of information that looks to serve the best interests of investors without those conflicts of interest. Everybody, regardless of experience or affluence, deserves that!"
