Bill Acheson is Chief Financial Officer of GWG Holdings, Inc. Bill is ideally suited to inform financial professionals and investors about specialty finance, alternative investments, non-correlated assets, and current market trends. Bill believes that today’s greater access to “professional grade” information, tools, and strategies can make it harder for individual investors to be successful in the long term. Therefore, he explains market complexities while providing insights in a clear, straightforward manner. With his background in structured finance, capital markets, and risk management, Bill’s perspective encompasses a global point of view fostered by his years at top financial organizations based in the U.S. and the U.K.
Previously, Bill served as Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President of Strategic Development for The Homeownership Preservation Foundation; Managing Director of Global Structured Finance and Investments at Merrill Lynch in London; and served GMAC-RESCAP in two positions first as Managing Director, then as Chief Financial Officer of the United Kingdom division.
Bill earned a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from the College of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota, and earned his Certified Public Accountant certificate in 1991 while working for Ernst & Young in Minneapolis. Learn more here.
