About the Program

Join the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity as we welcome financial thought leader Jason DeSena Trennert. Mr. Trennert will discuss his recent book, "My Side of the Street: Why Wolves, Flash Boys, Quants, and Masters of the Universe Don't Represent the Real Wall Street."

Part memoir, part love letter to an institution popularly viewed as a necessary (or as just plain) evil, "My Side of the Street" delivers a  defense of the investment banking industry critiqued by Michael Lewis and others, illuminating the ethical and decent majority who take the subway, worry about mortgages, and keep the entire enterprise on its feet. Introducing the general reader to captains of finance, famous on The Street but invisible to outsiders, Mr. Trennert lays on display the absurdity and unbridled joy of big business-a comic tale of unlikely success in America's most notorious industry.
