Martin Fridson leads Porter & Co.’s Distressed Investing lineup, and there is no one better qualified.
Martin is “the most well-known figure in the high yield world,” according to Investment Dealers’ Digest.
Over a 25-year span with brokerage firms including Salomon Brothers, Morgan Stanley, and Merrill Lynch, he became known for his innovative work in credit analysis and investment strategy.
He has served as president of the Fixed Income Analysts Society, governor of the Association for Investment Management and Research (now the CFA Institute), and director of the New York Society of Security Analysts.
In 2000, he became the youngest person ever inducted into the Fixed Income Analysts Society Hall of Fame.
Martin is the author of six modern financial classics and editor of many more – with his latest, The Little Book of Picking Top Stocks, scheduled for publication in 2023.
The Green Magazine calls Martin’s Financial Statement Analysis “one of the most useful investment books ever.”
The Boston Globe said his book, Unwarranted Intrusions, should be short-listed for best business book of the decade. Since 1989, Martin has served as the book review editor for Financial Analysts Journal. His writing appears regularly on Forbes.com.
