Anthony is a researcher, analyst and freelance writer living in beautiful Eugene, Oregon. Anthony writes about the finance industry - particularly information security related topics - and is a fervent advocate of both freedom and accountability.
Anthony’s work is featured by leading Internet publishers including The Chicago Sun-Times, Business Week BX, Seeking Alpha, InvestorCentric, OpenSalon, Bear Market Investments, Alacra Pulse, ML-Implode, Reuters, and dozens more, as well as having been referenced by the BBC News.
Anthony has worked as a consultant to senior members of product development, secondary, and capital markets from the largest financial institutions in the country, and he had a front row seat to the bursting of the credit bubble.
As Special Studies Coordinator, he worked as part of a talented team who developed competitive market intelligence for the banking and finance industries.
Anthony worked directly with senior members of product development, secondary and capital markets from the largest financial institutions in the country including Bank of America, Citigroup, JPMorgan, Washington Mutual, Countrywide, Wachovia, Fifth Third, IndyMac, GMAC, SunTrust, and many more.
Anthony has extensive experience in research, data collection, analysis and custom report design, as well as long term project and client management. He continually locates, develops and maintains high level resources and contacts in the finance industry in order to maintain regular access to competitive intelligence that may not be available through traditional channels.
He has led high profile projects from conception and development through implementation, and has been extremely fortunate to continually have worked with a culturally diverse team of colleagues possessing unlimited talents, and who worked tirelessly to ensure the highest standards of quality in client satisfaction and product quality.
The primary types of data sought and utilized for these reports consisted of proprietary underwriting guidelines, base rate and adjuster databases with APRs, production metrics and market analytics, fee schedules and internal company communiqué.
This data was nearly worth its weight in gold, and extremely difficult to secure on a regular basis. Even clients would bar access to the majority of their data through the official channels, but Anthony always managed to get his hands on the best intelligence.
During the housing bubble, the hunger for product and market intelligence that was driven by the desire to gain market share was so great that executives at nearly all of the lenders were willing to barter almost anything, but not necessarily with anyone. That is where Anthony did his best work.
The crux of Anthony’s work relies on his ability to establish and develop relationships with senior level contacts at major corporations who can provide regular access to intelligence of the most sensitive nature.
Effectively managing and further developing these resources required a great deal of diplomacy and finesse, as the contacts were well aware that Anthony’s clients included their own biggest competitors.
Anthony also founded Everybody’s Holding Company, LLC, and has experience in all aspects of business operations, accounting and finance.
