R.I.P. Peter L Bernstein

His book “Against The Gods” allured me into the exciting world of financial risk management. I have never invested in gold – and have advised, unsuccessfully, to all my women acquaintances – after the compelling arguments in his book “The Power of Gold: The History of Obsession”. In fact every book of his evoked thought and helped me understand the capital markets better. Peter L Bernstein – money manager, author, publisher and also a WW II spy – died on Friday at the age of 90.

I can only echo Justin Fox – I want to be like Bernstein when I grow up.

Rest in peace, Sir.
