Working Ethically in Finance

Book Description

“… a must read for those wanting to craft a vocation in finance.” -- Adrian Gore, CEO, Discovery Group; “… no better book for a student or practitioner who wants more than is usually on offer in finance courses in our universities.” -- Paul Oslington, Professor of Economics and Dean of Business, Alphacrucis College, Sydney. To develop a vocation we ask: what do I want to be remembered for? This involves aspiring to personal integrity and a life well lived. Those working in the financial sector fulfill vocations by finding ways to serve social purposes, to allocate resources efficiently and to provide financial security—while remembering the needy. This means contributing to institutions, where people can flourish personally and create appropriate products and services. The ethics of those working on finding their vocation do not flow from rules and obligations, but from a personal commitment to seeking what is good. This life is based on the fundamental personal virtue, integrity. This book is written for those who aspire to the cultivation of the personal virtues of wisdom, self-control, courage, and justice.
