About Gerald Loeb


Gerald Loeb was a highly successful financier and founding partner of E.F. Hutton who made it his mission to educate individuals about finance, investments and economics. He first rose to prominence during the Great Depression, when skittish investors turned to his now-classic book "The Battle for Investment Survival," in which he outlined his buy-and-sell strategies.

Throughout his 40-year career on Wall Street, Loeb continued to offer his sometimes-contrarian wisdom through his books and regular columns in publications such as Barron's. Loeb hoped to perpetuate quality reporting and writing for individual investors by leaving as his legacy the Gerald Loeb Awards for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism.
