Fixed Income Expert, Steve Shaw

Steve Shaw founded BondSavvy to show investors how to invest in individual corporate bonds and increase their return on investment. Technology has made investing in individual corporate bonds efficient and fair for individual investors, yet most investors keep investing in bond mutual funds, bond ETFs, municipal bonds, and stocks. Steve founded BondSavvy to change this.

Steve's experience over three key areas has prepared him to help people make successful corporate bond investments:

  • 20 years of experience analyzing and valuing hundreds of companies and businesses
  • Keen understanding of bond markets and trading systems
  • Strong performance of his own corporate bond investments

During his 20-year career, Steve has evaluated investments in, and acquisitions of, hundreds of companies in a wide variety of industries, including cable, broadcast television, big data, mobile, Internet, telecommunications, social media, financial technology, financial services, and retail. As an investment banker and a senior executive of media and financial technology companies, Steve led business due diligence, valuation and financial analysis, and deal negotiations across a variety of successful transactions.

In addition to his investment experience, Steve has deep knowledge of the bond markets, having worked for two leading fixed income electronic trading technology companies, including when he was Head of Tradeweb Direct, which he led through a period of strong growth.

As he learned more about how the corporate bond market worked, Steve began investing in individual corporate bonds. His significant experience in financial analysis and his understanding of how corporate bonds are traded helped him create a method he follows when making corporate bond investments. This method has driven strong investment returns and laid the foundation for BondSavvy.

Steve is a 10-time finisher of IRONMAN 70.3-distance triathlons, with a personal best of 5:34:13 at IRONMAN 70.3 Mont-Tremblant in 2017.  In July 2018, he finished IRONMAN Lake Placid.
