About

Author Vivian Lewis is editor and founder of Global Investing, the monthly newsletter for Americans seeking to internationalize their portfolios. She brings unique experience and competences to the business of picking foreign stocks. After graduating from Harvard magna cum laude (and being elected to Phi Beta Kappa), she lived in Europe for 18 years where she worked as a financial journalist. Back in the US again in 1989, she decided that the retail investor managing his or her own investments deserved the kind of information she had been digging up for mutual fund and pension fund managers, so she started Global Investing. Nearly six years ago, Ms. Lewis started Minutewoman.com, an Internet-only newsletter for more sophisticated, risk-tolerant investors able to purchase stocks directly on open foreign markets. She brings to her readers her familiarity with foreign markets, a full rolodex of contacts garnered during 18 years of living abroad, and the ability to speak a half-dozen languages.
