Advisors react to an investment legend's stance, sharing their thoughts on how reputation and trust can make or break their business.

    Regardless of age, background, training, or education, of the parties involved, the only real assurance for the client is the integrity or incorruptibility of the advisor/salesperson. A synonym for complete (honesty)

    In 2009, a woman I knew charged me with sexual assault. I received a conditional discharge which is a decision passed by a court whereby I was not convicted and did not receive a criminal record provided I complied with the conditions of community service and keeping the peace during 12 months of probation. I fulfilled this obligation and was discharged. I was never convicted and I do not have a criminal record. But, I ensure every prospect is aware of this before working with me. This situation caused myself and my family a great deal of embarrassment and I lost important business relationships, clients and much of the reputation I worked so hard to build. I have moved on from this with renewed energy and a greater understanding of what can be endured. I cannot un-live my past but I can ensure that the future is nothing like it. I will not let this event in history go to waste. I strive daily that what I was accused of was out of character. I commit to rebuilding my life, my business and my reputation by everything I do every day. Successful relationships are based on trust. Trust comes from transparency - from openness. That’s why I tell this serious and embarrassing story of a small part of my life. I do everything in my power to earn respect and trust.
