Vivian Lewis is editor and founder of Global-Investing.com, the daily blog newsletter for Americans and others seeking to internationalize their portfolios. She brings unique experience and competences to the business of picking foreign stocks. After graduating from Harvard magna cum laude, Vivian lived 18 years in Europe where she worked as a financial journalist. Back in the U.S. in 1989, she decided that retail investors managing their own portfolios deserved the kind of information she had been digging up for mutual fund and pension fund managers, so she started Global Investing. It covers the American Depositary Receipt market, where now some 2,500 shares can be bought, and Canadian stocks. Apart from ADRs, Global Investing also covers yield instruments like yankee bonds and foreign preferred stocks. And for start-up global investors, the newsletter recommends closed-end and exchange-traded funds outside the U.S.
Global Investing is a newsletter for investors seeking to build an international portfolio of stocks and bonds from around the world without leaving Wall Street or their regular brokers. It covers American Depositary Receipts and other foreign stocks and bonds trading in the U.S., and closed-end and exchange-traded country funds. We also cover Canadian stocks, which can be bought in U.S. brokerage accounts. Global Investing was founded more than 20 years ago and now is a daily blog, published in two versions: a full newsletter with stock advise for paid subscribers, and a pre-subscription version with news excluding stock advise which is free. Both are edited by Vivian Lewis, who founded the newsletter, with help from a team of reporters in Latin America, Canada, Britain, Japan, China, India and Europe.
