Pakistani Canadian Investor on Stock Strategies

via www.theglobeandmail.com

Born in Karachi, Pakistan, the 62-year-old studied business at the University of London with the intention of heading back home, but as he puts it: “The world was not so small back then, and Pakistan wasn’t as developed. I felt that if I wanted to grow personally I needed to stay in the Western world.” He moved to Canada, settled in Toronto, and became a chartered accountant, working for Arthur Andersen and Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. One workday in the late seventies, while he was grabbing lunch in the downtown Eaton Centre, he became intrigued by the many shoppers looking through a storefront at photographs being quickly processed.
