Welcome to the A Long Time In Finance Podcast; the long view of finance, markets and money as seen by two veteran City editors, Neil Collins and Jonathan Ford. Sponsored by Briefcase.News and hosted on Reaction.

In this final episode of our six part “Long Time Short” series, Neil tells the story of the rise and fall of Bernie Cornfeld, mutual fund peddlar extraordinaire and founder of Investors Overseas Services, whose pitch to the aspiring affluent was “Do you sincerely want to be rich?” (Spoiler alert: they didn’t end up getting rich.)

Presented by Jonathan Ford and Neil Collins. Produced and edited by Nick Hilton for Podot. In partnership with Briefcase.News
