During a career spanning a quarter century, Tom Saler has worked closely with editors and portfolio managers to shape pieces for diverse audiences.

The author of three investment books, Saler has written hundreds of articles for such prestigious financial publications as Barron’s, Bloomberg, and Institutional Investor. His “Historical Perspectives” column has appeared in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel for nearly 20 years. Saler also co-authored a script for the “Secrets of the Great Investors” series narrated by Louis Rukeyser.

Areas of specialty include whitepapers, shareholder reports and market commentaries. An authority on behavioral finance and neuroeconomics, Saler gives keynote speeches on how to overcome the cognitive biases that cause subpar investment results.

Saler’s latest book — a critically acclaimed biography of the conductor Carlo Maria Giulini — was published by the University of Illinois Press in 2010. Recently, Saler provided an oral history of the book to the Rosenthal Archives of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

Current projects include a stageplay and two screenplays.
