About the Author
Gil Weinreich has been the editor of Research magazine since 1997. During his editorship, the magazine, which reaches some 90,000 investment advisors, has gained broad acceptance within the wirehouse advisor community. Research has also won the prestigious award for Excellence in Financial Journalism conferred by the New York Society of Certified Public Accountants (NYSSCPA) in each of the seven years from 2003 to 2010. Gil himself won the first two of those awards for a pathbreaking column he wrote in 2003-2004 called “The Ethical Advisor.”
At Research, Gil has participated as a speaker, panelist or moderator at numerous industry conferences — from the World Series of ETFs to the Retirement Income Industry Association to various broker-dealer conferences; he’s lectured on ethics at Credit Lyonnais and keynoted at Dalbar’s financial professional conference.
Prior to Research, Gil worked as an international news reporter at Voice of America (VOA), where he wrote news for VOA broadcasts, mainly on the Africa and Mideast desks, and covered international news events. He produced live news shows, documentaries and feature programs, and won a journalism award for his coverage of breaking events in the Middle East. Earlier in his career, he worked at U.S. News and World Report in Washington, D.C., where he produced the weekly letters page.
Gil’s first book — on a non-financial topic — was published in 2010, prompting appearances on the Michael Medved show and other national radio programs.
Gil received his Master’s degree at American University in Washington, D.C., where he studied international relations. He earned his Bachelor’s degree at U.C. Berkeley, in political science.
Gil and his wife Nedra and their children live in Los Angeles’s Westside.
