From one of many best cash managers Canada has ever identified, The Investment Zoo is an incisive work through which historical past, tradition, politics and finance are intermingled.
Stephen A. Jarislowsky has had a single objective all through his profession: the defence of the shareholder. He has been outspoken in his criticism of breaches in ethics: overpaid bosses, administrators who shut their eyes to questionable practices, grossly over-compensated attorneys, and brokers who inflate their commissions by encouraging pointless buying and selling. In The Investment Zoo, Stephen A. Jarislowsky reveals his strategy to funding – the strategy that has assured his extraordinary success in enterprise – and discusses a number of topics that contact him personally: his personal path from childhood to grownup life, his imaginative and prescient as an administrator, and his involvement in accountable philanthropy. At age 79, the incorruptible billionaire has misplaced not one of the spirit that has so typically aroused controversy. The Investment Zoo was revealed in Quebec to nice acclaim. Since January 2005, it has offered over 15,000 copies, and has pushed the French version of The Da Vinci Code out of the primary place on the bestseller checklist.
