To the bank, credit card company, and investment firm I work
with: I trust you. I really do.
I didn’t, I wouldn’t put my hard-earned money in your hands. While I’m not a
Certified Financial Analyst, I am financially savvy, so I understand that we
have a mutually beneficial relationship. From a high-level, banks use the money
I deposit to sell loans and invest in other financial instruments. Credit card
companies make money on interest charges, other fees, and transaction fees from
merchants. The brokerage firm makes money through fees on my account. On the
other hand, all I expect is that you are honest about your services, provide
returns, and keep my money safe.
