Annual Business Ethics Lecture Featuring Morris Smith

Legendary Wall Street investor and former manager of Fidelity Investments' Magellan Fund, Moshe (Morris) Smith achieved a level of success that most others can only dream of, controlling billions of dollars in the world's largest mutual fund. At the height of his professional success, Mr. Smith gave it all up to spend more time with his family, learning Torah and working on behalf of the Jewish community. A long time friend of the Yeshiva (and proud parent of Reishit Legend & Madrich, Lt. Yair '98), Mr. Smith spoke openly to talmidim about the importance of honesty and making a Kidush Hashem in business, and maintaining perspective on professional and personal responsibilities and priorities. (Thanks to for the graphic!)
