Jakobson ’52 Speaks to Students about Markets, Investing

Trustee emeritus John Jakobson '52, P'05, who bought a seat on the New York Stock Exchange for $85,000 in 1955, addressed students on campus on April 4, an event sponsored by the Career Resource Center. “Investment is all about tomorrow, not yesterday,” he said. “People don’t give a damn about anything that’s not the next big thing.”

Jakobson engages with David Goldman, president of the Wesleyan Investment Club.
