Part memoir, part love letter to an institution popularly viewed as a necessary (or as just plain) evil, My Side of the Street: Why Flash Boys, Quants, and Masters of the Universe Don’t Represent the Real Wall 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.
Featuring Jason DeSena Trennert. Mr. Trennert is the Managing Partner of Strategas Research Partners LLC and the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the firm’s broker-dealer subsidiary, Strategas Securities, LLC. In addition, as Chief Investment Strategist, Mr.Trennert is known as one of Wall Street’s top thought leaders on the subject of markets and economic policy. His research pieces are read by leading institutional investors and corporate executives across the globe. He received an MBA from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and BS in International Economics from Georgetown University.
