Brian Bollinger, Simply Safe Dividends

My name is Brian Bollinger, and I am the President of Simply Safe Dividends. Prior to starting the company, I was an equity research analyst for a multi-billion dollar investment fund. I really enjoyed my work and have spent over 10,000 hours researching, analyzing, and recommending stock ideas. From calling up management teams to digging through annual reports, my research experiences have exposed me to many different types of industries, companies, and investment situations. I am also a registered Certified Public Accountant, which has helped me better analyze financial statements and get to the bottom of some of the more dreadful accounting issues, such as deferred taxes. Prior to joining the investment management industry, I attended school at Indiana University, where I triple majored in finance, accounting, and entrepreneurship and was fortunate to graduate in the top 1% of my class. At graduation, I also received the William A. Rawles Key Award, which is presented annually to the single senior in the school of business having the most distinguished record in the undergraduate program. Work experience and education aside, I am a straight shooter. I believe in only providing stock analysis that is rooted in the facts and offers a balanced look at the pros and cons of a particular investment opportunity. You will never find gimmicky analysis, sensational headlines, or careless recommendations at Simply Safe Dividends. Everything we do is done with integrity.
