Benj Gallander: has among the highest returns, both short- and long-term, in North America. Co-editor of Contra the Heard Investment Letter, columnist for The Globe and Mail, writer for Canadian MoneySaver and various publications in the United States, Gallander's approach has the investment world buzzing.

His approach to investing is decidedly contrarian. He does not believe in buying and holding until perpetuity, albeit he is a longer term investor than most. He thinks that stop losses are idiotic, like playing cards with your hand open. He redefines conventional norms of the risk-reward relationship. He rarely buys a stock that does not have a chance of a minimum 100 per cent return, often much more. He remains unconcerned with the daily pulse of trading. This ability to dance against the herd has led to a twenty-year annualized return of 18.1 per cent.

His best-seller (one of three) The Contrarian Investor's 13 How to Earn Superior Returns in the Stock Market focuses on his methodology and philosophy, and the rules around which Benj has structured his investment approach. One of his goals is simple: to show people how to improve their financial returns by themselves, reducing their dependence on brokers and advisors.

He has travelled to about 35 countries and worked in many of them including Czechoslovakia, France, Israel and Nepal. He has criss-crossed Canada and is looking forward to landing in Regina one fine day.
