Q How did you come to meet Kevin O’Leary and what was it that solidified a strong enough bond to create your partnership?
A I met Kevin when he was evaluating a number of firms to see the potential of being involved with an investment management firm, in part to have his money managed the way he wanted, which was a very value-yield style of investing, and also to see if the visibility that he generated by being on television would be helpful in building an investment management firm. The good news for both of us is that we saw a lot of potential and commonality in terms of investment style and interest and entrepreneurial drive. So, we decided we would go ahead with it. As a business person, he’s extremely calm and practical and makes good business decisions really efficiently.
