Former White House National Economic Council Director, Larry Kudlow, is joining The Bahnsen Group, a $2.6 billion national wealth management firm with offices in New York City and Newport Beach, California, as an economic advisor.
“Larry has been a mentor to me for many years, both personally and professionally. We both share a love of free markets, and Larry has over forty years of experience in public policy and macroeconomics that is going to benefit the process we implement for our clients immensely,” said David Bahnsen, Founder and Chief Investment Officer at The Bahnsen Group. “My clients have benefitted from the wisdom of Larry Kudlow for years, albeit indirectly. To formalize this working relationship is a dream for me."
It was recently announced that Kudlow joined Fox Business Network as anchor of a daily afternoon show.
Kudlow spent the last three years as the Director of the National Economic Council, steering trade policy, tax policy, and in 2020, the COVID-19 economic response policy, both within the White House and inter-departmental agencies. He began his policy career working in the Office of Management and Budget of the Reagan White House in the early 1980’s.
Kudlow’s consulting position will involve client events, both virtual and in-person, and frequent consultation with The Bahnsen Group’s investment committee.
“I am excited to work with David and the clients of The Bahnsen Group in this endeavor,” said Kudlow. “David is a friend and supply-side disciple, and I know the seriousness and sobriety with which they engage capital markets. This is going to be a good fit for all of us.”
Bahnsen is a regular guest on Fox Business Network himself, and is currently a trustee at the National Review Institute where he hosts the weekly Capital Record podcast.
