A good-spirited headline out of the New York Times, with a marvelous photo of the goofily joyous money manager. Who was sent, by mistake, $1.5 million and now both the money manager and the mistaken buckeroos are no longer available. They are, in short, missing!
It’s a darn mystery, is what it is. Someone should write a book…
You must click on this at the least to see for yourself the expression on the money manager’s face: $1.5 Million Sent in Error to Money Manager Both Are Missing – NYTimes.com. And the story itself, by Matthew Goldstein, has a drop-deadpan delivery.
And wasn’t it just last week I was advising a friend who had just retired with some money not to give that money to a “financial adviser,” a/k/a money manager?
Wasn’t I? Yes I was. (Oh no: I so hope it wasn’t this money manager and my friend’s money.)
