He has also been a tax and financial consultant to several financial institutions including Macquarie Bank. He has been a forensic accounting consultant, assisting trustees of companies in liquidation discover hidden assets and has assisted the Canadian authorities in uncovering and closing down various ponzi schemes.

He started his own publishing company, Trident Press, in 1994 writing books on various subjects in his areas of expertise. Many of Lance's 38 books have attained "best seller" status with books having been sold in over 100 countries around the world.

During that time, Lance was also a regular feature writer in many magazines, Newspapers and various local and international newsletters. Lance has spoken at several international and Australian seminars on issues of taxation, investment and financial privacy. His books have been featured on Australia's ABC TV, in TIME Magazine and discussed on radio in the USA and in Australia. Lance's biography has been included in the Who's Who in the World.

He embarked on his full time "investing career" in 1994, although he has been involved in the markets professionally since 1980.

In late 2004 he created Trident Confidential - a stock market newsletter published weekly from January 2008 until January 2017. Using his accounting and corporate skills he has been able to identify underlying value in companies often overlooked by the market resulting in market beating results.

Utilising "The Trident Investment Selection System", Lance employs fundamental analysis, economic analysis and his extensive years of experience, in addition to good old fashioned common sense (which is not so common anymore), to pinpoint great investments.
