A financial writer like no other, Jared Dillian is one of the industry’s most original, entertaining, contrarian voices. He is a master of market psychology and has been called “the Dr. House of trading,” with a staunch following ranging from casual investors to professional traders and hedge fund managers.
From 2001 to 2008, Jared worked at Lehman Brothers—first as an index arbitrage trader and then as head of the ETF trading desk. During this time, he routinely traded over $1 billion a day in volume.
He left Lehman Brothers to start a market newsletter for investment professionals, The Daily Dirtnap, which has been published continuously since 2008. Jared also currently writes Street Freak and The 10th Man, which have a combined readership of more than 200,000.
His memoir, Street Freak: Money and Madness at Lehman Brothers, was named Businessweek’s #1 general business book of 2011, and his first novel All the Evil of This World was published in 2016.
He is a regular contributor at Bloomberg View, Forbes, and other outlets. His media appearances include MSNBC, Bloomberg TV, The New York Times, LA Times, Business Insider and dozens of local and syndicated radio programs. Additionally, he is a teaching associate in the graduate business program at Coastal Carolina University.
He graduated from the United States Coast Guard Academy in 1996 with a B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science, and received his MBA from the University of San Francisco in 2001. He lives in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
