Dave KlanteCorporate Finance and Investment Banking

David Klante is excited to pursue his MBA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a focus on Corporate Finance and Investment Banking.  Prior to joining the program, David was an Associate Director at Fitch Ratings in Chicago where he provided credit ratings for Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities (CMBS) transactions.  As the lead analyst for 15 U.S. and Canadian CMBS transactions totaling nearly $12 billion, David was responsible for assessing the credit strengths and weaknesses of commercial real estate loans and CMBS portfolios, presenting his findings to internal credit committees and authoring investor transaction reports that reflected Fitch Ratings’ opinion of credit quality.

David received his Bachelor of Business Administration from the Wisconsin School of Business in 2009 with a major in Real Estate and Urban Land Economics.  He looks forward to returning to Wisconsin to develop his corporate finance knowledge and enhance his analytical skills.  In his free time, David enjoys spending time with his wife, son and dog and cheering for Wisconsin sports teams.
