The Wizard of Lies

I shared the stage with Diana Henriques, author of “The Wizard of Lies”, who shared her insights about Ponzi perps.  We’re hard-wired to trust people, so we need guiding principles to follow:  invest only with funds which have third-party consultants, know your risk tolerance (for directors this has a familiar ring), and understand the risk(s) we’re taking.  Diana is a senior financial writer for the New York Times and it is very easy to understand why she is so successful.  She interviewed Madoff in prison and she shares valuable insights.
