Brexit Briefings

The U.K. has been a reluctant participant in the EU for some time, so I am unaware of any plans of switching from the Pound sterling to the euro currency. Denmark and Sweden are two other EU members, not a part of the eurozone, that are sticking with their home currencies - the Danish krone and the Swedish krona.

How I Managed $20,000,000,000.00 by Age 32
Wade Slome

10/31/2008

What a wild ride it has been. From trading penny stocks in high school stock market competitions after the 1987 Crash , to trading billions of dollars whilst elbowing with the likes of Eric Schmidt (CEO of Google), Jeff Bezos (CEO of Amazon), and John Chambers (CEO of Cisco Systems)...I have seen it all. There is no playbook for managing billions of dollars, starting your own investment firm, and running a hedge fund. My life story has been rather circuitous, taking me everywhere from California to New York and from Australia to China along the way. I even took a nine year pit-stop in America s heartland, where I managed a $20,000,000,000.00 fund at American Century Investments. As a freshly minted MBA grad from Cornell University in 1998, I never expected in my wildest dreams to land on one of the 10 biggest funds in the U.S. America, what a great place to live! My journey eventually sucked me back towards the Pacific Ocean, where I now lead my investment practice.
