David Stanley

Dave Stanley was a professor at the University of Guelph for 25 years before taking early retirement. His interest in individual investing led to the development of the "Beating The TSX" approach, which has outperformed the Canadian large-cap index.
He is a contributing editor for the Canadian MoneySaver where he writes about personal investing issues and was the founding member of the Guelph ShareClub.
