About Liz Peek
Liz Peek was one of the first women on Wall Street to earn that most hallowed of titles --Partner. After graduating with an Honors Degree in Economics from Wellesley College she joined a research boutique on Wall Street where she developed an improbable expertise in backhoes, mining equipment, wireline services and drilling fluids. She became a CFA and in 1975 she moved to Wertheim & Company, a leading equities house which subsequently was bought by Schroder, Inc. and then by Citigroup. During almost two decades with the firm, Liz became a top-ranked analyst covering oilfield services companies, co-head of investment research and head of the firm’s international research department. As a partner she was seconded to Schroder to assist that company’s entry into the equities business at the time of London’s “Big Bang”, and then undertook to build Wertheim’s equities business in Tokyo.
Liz was the first woman to head the National Association of Petroleum Investment Analysts, a national organization of several hundred energy investors, and was a frequent contributor to the Wall Street Journal, Oil and Gas Journal, Wall Street Transcript and other industry periodicals. She was a guest on Wall Street Week and other financial programs.
In recent years Liz has been a columnist with The New York Sun, FoxNews.com, The Huffington Post, The Motley Fool and Women on the Web (wowOwow.) She is a frequent guest on Fox’ Strategy Room, and has appeared on other TV programs. She has been twice nominated for a Loeb Award. She is Vice Chairman of the Board of Fashion Institute of Technology, a SUNY college of some 10,000 students, and serves on the Executive Committee of the Central Park Conservancy Women’s Committee. She is married to Jeffrey Peek and has three children.
MY RANT ON LIZ
I HIGHLY DOUBT THAT THE HUFFINGTON POST TOUTS MRS PEEKS PRAISES. I will have to check out THOSE credentials
So as you can see, Mrs. Peek had a hand in the downfall of America, by being a wall street leader and wheeler dealer. Well god bless Liz peek, huh? Are all you conservative tea baggers belly aching at Liz for causing the financial woes in this country? Nope. You8 are too busy trying to get a Black man out of the Presidential Oval office, and put some looney fruitcake beauty pageant queen with no sense in her head instead. Maybe Liz will run as her VP. The TIGER is unleashed today grrrr.
