Patrick Bet-David


Patrick Bet-David is an American entrepreneur and financial adviser.

In the late 1980s he fled Iran with his father during the Iran–Iraq War; they lived for two years in a refugee camp in Germany before immigrating to the US in 1990, when Bet-David was 12 years old. After high school he enlisted in the US army and served with the 101st Airborne Division.

After leaving the Army he got a job at Morgan Stanley. After a dinner event with George Will in 2009, he launched a website called Saving America and later a radio show broadcast in Los Angeles, to encourage people to be entrepreneurial and to educate people about fiscal responsibility. Later that year he opened a financial services agency offering term and permanent insurance, debt settlements, and 401(k) rollovers into indexed annuities called PHP Agency, which stood for “People Helping People”.

Bet-David has published two books, The 25 Laws for Doing the Impossible (2011) and The Next Perfect Storm (2012). The former is a self-help book about realizing your goals, and the latter tries to teach people how to profit from bubbles like the real estate market in the 2000s and the stock market of the late 1990s.
