Co-President and Owner, Gray Swan Asset Management
Blog Posts: 1

David Bensoussan is co-president of Gray Swan Asset Management, a registered investor advisor in San Diego, Calif., specializing in stocks and other equity investments. David spent his childhood in both California and France, giving him an international perspective. In 2000, he graduated from U.C. Santa Barbara with Dean's Honors. He then formed an investment partnership before continuing his studies, and in 2006 received an M.A. in International Politics from U.C. Irvine. His thesis, on the "Commodification of Mortgages in the United States," correctly asserted that Wall Street's bundling of subprime and other mortgages into the equivalent of commodity products would have dire economic consequences.

David's research and timing skills help him identify trend reversals at the most opportune time and profitably capitalize on them. As an individual investor, David made a significant sum predicting the demise of Bear Stearns in 2008, and then parlayed those gains into a lucrative real estate partnership that started purchasing foreclosed properties for historically low prices in early 2009. David launched professional financial advisory firm Gray Swan Asset Management in 2013, with his long-time friend and business associate Warren Thefeld.
