David K. Laidlaw
Managing Partner, CFA
What does David do at Eagle Ridge?
David has been a Portfolio Manager and the Managing Partner of Eagle Ridge since Laidlaw Group LLC merged with Eagle Ridge in 2015. He enjoys the investment side of the business (given the dynamic nature of markets), and working closely with clients to help solve their unique challenges. He has long-standing relationships with many clients and (without wanting to age him!), in some cases with multiple generations of the same families.
Where is David from?
David grew up in Bedford and Pound Ridge, New York. One of his friends referred to him as the apple falling closest to the tree.
He received a B.A. from Reed College, then went on to do a law degree at Rutgers University. He began his career at Fissel, Laidlaw & Co. Inc. where he worked for three years, before co-founding Laidlaw Group LLC where he was the Manager and Chief Investment Officer.
