J. Anthony (Tony) Boeckh’s economic and financial writings have been widely followed by individual and institutional investors in every major country in the world for over 40 years. He has been referred to as the “expert the experts rely on” by Louis Rukeyser of “Wall Street Week”. His analyses and forecasts have been most closely associated with The Bank Credit Analyst (BCA), which he developed into its modern form; he was the Chairman, CEO, and Editor-in-Chief of BCA Research Inc. from 1968 to 2002. Under his leadership, BCA grew from a small firm to become one of the world’s leading independent investment research companies. He has a PhD in finance and economics from the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.
He first gained experience in economic and financial research at Canada’s central bank in the early 1960s. He taught economics and finance at McGill University in Montreal, Canada for a number of years. He coauthored “The Stock Market and Inflation”, published by Dow Jones-Irwin in 1982.
He was involved in the investment management business as chairman of Greydanus, Boeckh and Associates, a fixed income investment firm, from 1985 to 1999.
Tony has been a longtime supporter of free market economic principles. He is a founding trustee of the Vancouver-based Fraser Institute, an economic think tank dedicated to free market principles.
Currently, he and Ian Boeckh manage Boeckh Investments Inc., a family office and private investment firm specializing in small public companies. Tony has lectured at economic, financial, and investment seminars and conferences around the world, and has been sought after by the media and others for his insights and analysis.
Tony has been a longtime student of investment cycles, financial manias, and crises. The financial crisis of 2008-2009 prompted him to set out his thoughts in “The Great Reflation: How Investors Can Profit from the New World of Money”. He also coauthors “The Boeckh Investment Letter” with Robert Boeckh, which is available on the web at www.boeckhinvestmentletter.com. The publication follows the principles outlined in “The Great Reflation” and is focused on helping investors manage their money.
