If your investment banker was spending an inordinate amount of money on three trips to space in the middle of a “global economic crisis” would you change banks? His name is Per Wimmer, he’s lined up to be the first space tourist. He runs an investment bank.
From his own website – which one can only assume is autobiographical:
In brief, Per Wimmer is a global financier, an entrepreneur, an adventurer, a pioneer and a philanthropist – or, as a commentator has argued, a true “Indiana Jones meets 007 James Bond.”
Yeah, I’d trust a renaissance man like that with my money. If I was a fictional character. Seriously, fiscal responsibility is the new black. Opulence is out. That’s why, in Townsville I’d choose these guys
– who have the worst ads and uniforms in the region, over these guys
who spent last year building an extravagant office space – and losing their over leveraged clients an average of 17%.
