“As a young man during the Depression, my grandfather began a 50-year career as a small-town banker. Because those were lean years, with every purchase carefully considered, he remembered the price of everything. But more importantly, he also remembered the value of thrift and discipline. Those were lessons he passed on to my father, and through him to me. Those values are a solid foundation on which to build investment strategies.“
