For Love and Money
Ralph E. W. Loader


5.5 X 8.5 - 136 Pages

Subtitle: Reflections on the essential disciplines of institutional investment management, life and happiness

“The silent majority who work at the heart of the investment business are heard from all too rarely. Public focus is on those on the edge, whose drive for success and wealth cause them to take large risks or cut corners. This book shows them up... a thoughtful consideration of difficult issues pertaining to investment and personal faith wherein Ralph shows, in particular, how his faith informs his core investment values.”
– D. Don Ezra (Co-author, The Retirement Plan Solution and Pension Fund Excellence)

“In this short book, Ralph Loader shares his journey of discovery in the principles and practices of institutional investing guided by the teachings of his Christian faith. A fascinating read.”
– Keith Ambachtsheer (Director, Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto)

This book deals with two subjects—investment and faith—that are inextricably linked. The idea that investment and faith are intimately related may not be immediately evident to the busy and passionate securities analyst or portfolio manager. It may seem anathema to the clergyman who reads 1 Timothy 6:10, “the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil” (NIV). The relationship between investment and faith however, begins with the fact that both disciplines engage us in an endless search for truth across an ever-changing landscape.

Ralph’s need to understand the mysteries of money drove him into the investment business soon after his post-graduate studies. At the age of 40, restless to uncover more of the secrets of life he embarked on a journey of faith that proved foundational to his career, his family life and his personal growth as a human being. He is eager to share his excitement about solutions that have worked for him in our world of investments and in our universe of faith.

About the Author:
With an MBA (1974) from Montreal’s Concordia University, Ralph found answers to a young man’s questions through a successful career in the investment consulting business that exposed him to the institutional investment cultures of Canada, the United States, Europe, Asia and South Africa. He found answers to an older man’s questions in his journey of faith. And he learned that the two are inseparably linked.
