David Chilton

The Wealthy Barber

David Chilton, an economic graduate from Wilfrid University, first found fame by self-publishing his book, The Wealthy Barber in 1989.  Written over 26 months, and specifically targeted those with little investment experience in order to develop positive money-spending habits.  The Wealthy Barber is one of the best selling Canadian books of all time, selling over two million copies!  It was followed up with a 2nd best seller, The Wealthy Barber Returns in 2008.

In 2013, Chilton was named the newest judge on the hit TV series Dragons’ Den, a role he kept until the show’s ninth season when he announced he was leaving to focus on his deals full-time. As a “Dragon”, Chilton incorporated his personal philosophies and financial expertise into the investments he made on the show.

Although Chilton continues to make many appearances on national television, his true professional passion, however, remains in the field of personal finance, where he tries to mix humor and common sense to help people handle their money more wisely.
