Biography from Federated Prudent Bear Fund

David Tice - Chief Portfolio Strategist, Bear Markets

David W. Tice, Federated’s chief portfolio strategist for bear markets, has been at the forefront of bear market investing for more than 20 years.

Mr. Tice has long taken the role of a Cassandra to warn investors about the dangers of investing near the end of a secular bull market and has debated nearly every bullish Wall Street strategist. He gained national recognition through articles he wrote for Barron's and as the subject of numerous business journal and television interviews beginning at the time when he was among just a handful of courageous people who dared to short the market. Today he shares his views of the market and bear market investing approaches with both Federated investment personnel and clients alike.

Prior to his career as an investment manager and strategist, Mr. Tice held financial analyst positions with Atlantic Richfield Company and ENSERCH Corporation, a diversified energy company. He then joined Concorde Financial Corporation where he served as director of investments and was responsible for launching an equity mutual fund.

He launched his firm, David W. Tice & Associates, LLC, in 1988 to provide clients with hedging and sell discipline perspectives and recommendations through his "Behind the Numbers" publication and research service. This effort formed the origins of Federated Prudent Bear Fund in 1995 and Federated Prudent Global Income Fund in 2000.

Mr. Tice holds an undergraduate degree in accounting as well as an MBA from Texas Christian University. He is a Chartered Financial Analyst.
