Founder, Brede Investment Management Company
Debra Brede had a different idea in mind when she founded her investment management firm in 1989. A decade of industry experience made her realize that the needs of individual clients weren’t always best served by the typical Wall Street business model, where a firm sells its products to meet its sales goals. At the firm that bears her name, the individual needs of each client would be the primary focus.
Today, D.K. Brede Investment Management Company delivers investment management services to corporations, municipalities, retirement plans, charitable trusts, and high-net-worth individuals based on the principle that every recommendation made is dependent solely on a client’s individual needs, as determined personally by Debra Brede herself.
Debra is now a frequent media commentator on investment-related topics and is recognizable to tens of thousands of CNBC and Fox Business news viewers around the world. She’s also been featured in the Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Businessweek, Financial Times, Reuters, Bloomberg, Forbes, and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.
