Vic Lederman

Vic Lederman is the Editorial Director at Chaikin Analytics... And he has become something of a "geniuses' keeper of secrets" over the years... You see, Vic worked with scientist and inventor Andy Hildebrand. In that role, he tested and supported the kind of technology products that have contributed to nearly every pop music recording since the 1990s. Vic worked with Andy in the final years leading up to the company's sale. Then, Vic joined our corporate affiliate Stansberry Research in 2017. He worked alongside investment-newsletter industry legend Steve Sjuggerud. Specifically, he helped Steve in the years leading up to his successful retirement... In one of his main roles, Vic led the company's coverage of the commercial real estate space as the editor of True Wealth Real Estate. He brought the "insider only" world of private real estate deals to everyday investors, along with the most promising stock recommendations in the housing space. Vic also helped with True Wealth Systems. In that publication, he completed a behind-the-scenes analysis of Steve's overarching strategy. And he developed quantitative, trend-based trading strategies while testing millions of system variations. In True Wealth, Vic produced research-driven, evidence-based investing ideas with a "big picture" approach. By doing that, he helped uncover fundamental stories supported by financial trends. Now, at Chaikin Analytics, Vic is bringing his diligence in editorial production and market analysis to a new group of investors... Vic is excited to help Chaikin Analytics subscribers find the most compelling investment opportunities alongside Wall Street legend Marc Chaikin. Most importantly, Vic is known for his aggressive "do it right" attitude and is bringing that philosophy to our company.
