50 Years of Wisdom

It is difficult to convey in words or diagrams just how incompetent I was when I first stumbled into the financial industry in 1985. In my defense, the company I worked for, McLeod Young Weir’s idea of training was 90 days at head office in which the majority of the time was spent drinking too much at the local bar and listening to a parade of “top producing” stockbrokers brag about how much money they made from selling questionable (to put it mildly) products to their clients.

However, in the early 90s I found professional redemption through a man named Nick Murray. At the risk of sounding somewhat melodramatic, Murray became the single most important and positive influence on my life as an investor and a true professional advisor.

Long-term readers of this blog may recall Nick Murray’s name as I often feature his wisdom in these missives. Murray’s book, “Simple Wealth, Inevitable Wealth” acted as a beacon of truth as I transitioned from a transactionally oriented broker to a true wealth advisor. If you are a client I have probably passed along a copy of his book to you. If not, please let me know and I will send it out immediately!

The following is an interview with the man himself.
