Scott Fearon

Scott Fearon has spent thirty years in the financial services industry. Since 1990, he has managed the hedge fund Crown Capital. The fund has significantly outperformed the S&P 500 by investing in fast-growing companies while shorting the stocks of “dead companies walking,” businesses on their way to bankruptcy.

Scott is the author of a popular book called Dead Companies Walking in which he describes his methods for spotting doomed businesses, how they can be extremely profitable investments and how corporate managers routinely commit common mistakes that can derail even the most promising companies.
