David Hendler, Founder & Principal. Viola Risk Advisors, LLC (established November 2014). David believes that the sophisticated risk management, capital management, and regulatory exposure management communities have an unmet need for a holistic, enterprise-wide approach toward risk assessment in a transparent, dynamic, and open-forum fashion. With that vision, David and his team has embarked on presenting Violas risk advisory solutions satisfying those unmet needs through the Viola Risk website and via high-contact/high-value premium consulting services.

David has a unique background as a veteran senior financial services analyst with over 30+ years experience on both the Wall Street buy-side & sell-sides and the independent research side. He has covered investment & risk advisory from both the corporate debt & equity research disciplines. His career started on at New York Life Insurance Company (4 years), and then he did a long tour of duty on the sell-side (14 years) working at: Drexel Burnham Lambert, J.P. Morgan Securities, UBS Securities, Smith Barney Inc., and Credit Suisse First Boston.

David embarked on a long tour of duty on the emerging and now established independent securities research side at CreditSights, Inc. (approximately 13 years). At CreditSights he established and distinguished the U.S. Financial Services coverage as Head of that group.

David was awarded honorable mention in the 1995 Institutional Investor All-Star Rankings for his work in corporate bond research in the U.S. Banks sector. As part of the U.S. banks team that supported the lead analyst, it was awarded a #2 ranking in both Multinational Banks and Regional Banks for the Institutional Investor Equity rankings in 2000.
