Laura Dogu at Bogleheads 8

Laura Dogu is one of the premier posters on the forum. She's especially good at drawing out the required information needed to help new investors, no matter how many exchanges are required to finalize things.

Jack Bogle had previously named Taylor Larimore "King of the Bogleheads" and he called Mel Lindauer "The Prince of the Bogleheads". Realizing that the Bogleheads had no "queen", Taylor and Mel decided to crown Laura "Queen of the Bogleheads" at their 2007 reunion in recognition of her many excellent contributions to the success of the forum. Laura was then invited to become a panel member for the Q&A with the Experts session and has continued to participate since then (schedule permitting).


Along with Jack Bogle, Mel Lindauer and Taylor Larimore, Laura was honored by being selected as one of Money Magazine's everyday heroes in the magazine's March 2012 issue: Champions of the small investor

On August 5, 2015, Laura was confirmed as the US ambassador to the Republic of Nicaragua.[1]

Because I was one of the most vocal supporters of I when they were first introduced, I’m often asked for my thoughts on today’s I Bond offerings. The most common question I get is “Are today’s I a good investment?” While we can reminisce about the “good old days” when  one could purchase up to […]
