Alice Schroeder is an American author, columnist, and former insurance analyst, best known for her biography of Warren Buffett, "The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life." Born in Dallas, Texas in 1956, Schroeder earned a BBA in finance and an MBA from the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin in the late 1970s and early 1980s. She started her career as a certified public accountant at Ernst and Young, where she worked for over a decade.
In 1991, Schroeder transitioned to a project manager role for the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) in Norwalk, Connecticut. During her time at FASB, she managed several projects focused on ending abusive accounting practices in the insurance industry, including finite risk transfer contracts. The issue later became central to a criminal case faced by employees of AIG and Berkshire Hathaway-owned General Re.
Schroeder testified as an expert witness about accounting for finite risk reinsurance during the trial in Hartford, Connecticut. While Warren Buffett was not named in the case, "The Snowball" drew from her experience as an analyst and her personal interactions with the billionaire investor. After leaving FASB, Schroeder became a columnist for Bloomberg News in 2008 and continues to write for the publication. With her knowledge of finance and her insights into some of the most significant accounting scandals in modern history, Schroeder is a sought-after commentator on financial matters..
