Deirdre Bolton

Managing Director, Prosek Partners

Deirdre Bolton is a television journalist, specializing in business and financial news. She is best known for her coverage of “alternative investing”, from hedge funds to private equity to angel and venture capital investing. She uses her mastery of these subjects, along with her business and financial acumen to cover world economic events for ABC NEWS on “Good Morning America”, “World News Tonight” and “Nightline”.

Ms. Bolton previously developed and hosted “Women & Money with Deirdre Bolton” and “Risk & Reward with Deirdre Bolton”, at the Fox Business Network. Prior to those shows, she created and hosted the highly-regarded “Money Moves with Deirdre Bolton” at Bloomberg TV; the show became a forum for the most astute practitioners in alternative investing.

She has covered key international events, including reporting from Singapore for the historic meeting between South Korea, the U.S., and North Korea, as well as on-the-ground reporting from Paris on the terror attacks.

Ms. Bolton began her career in institutional equity sales at CDC North America and Société Générale. She completed most of her undergraduate and graduate coursework in France and holds a degree in English and French literature from the University of Iowa and a master's degree in French literature from New York University. Over the course of her career, she has lived and worked in Paris, London, and Singapore. She currently lives in New York City with her two sons (and a mischievous dog, Rockie).

Bolton has a personal interest in illustration, has developed that talent at The School of Visual Arts, where she developed a cartoon book (paper and digital) on financial literacy; she is also a certified executive coach through Columbia University’s Coaching Certification Program, and is a Fellow with Tribeca Disruptive Innovation, which brings together thought leaders in media, technology and science.
