The Joy of Picking a “Good” Mutual Fund

I’m reminded of a gentleman who discovers a genie in a bottle. Granted one wish only – apparently even genies have pricing power – the man asks for peace in the Middle East.

The genie quickly responds, “Let me get to work on the Middle East.” – Steven Romick’s Speech To CFA Society Of Chicago

This was part of Steven Romick‘s Speech to the CFA Society of Chicago. I don’t know if the original story is from him but he used it, so I’m crediting him with it. Steven is a managing partner at FPA Funds, which has manage about $33 billion in AUM.
