Window display of my book, Breaking Down the Walls, in the window of Barnes & Noble store on 5th Ave and 46th Street, New York City, New York.

Sunday, April 27th, 2014

During Women’s History Month, I went to visit the display of my book, Breaking Down the Walls, in the window of Barnes & Noble store on 5th Avenue and 46th Street. There was a posture 4ft X 5ft of my book cover as well as a display of the book in their window. I autographed all the copies of my book that were for sale in every B & N stores in Manhattan. It was a very successful trip.

When I returned home, I was invited to be interviewed on KTLA TV. I was able to tell how I broke down many walls of prejudices against women. After 50 years in the financial industry, there still is not equal pay for equal jobs as well as equal opportunities for advancement.

Breaking Down the Walls, is my story to teach women that they must always negotiate their pay and promotion opportunities throughout their careers.

My response to a Queryuery

Sunday, May 19th, 2013
“A reporter with a top U.S. daily sends the following query: I’m looking for academics and financial experts to discuss mutual fund managers and turnover of managers in the industry, and whether turnover rises as markets go up or not, the impact of turnover on investors and fund performance.”In response to this query:
I was the President of Yaeger Capital Markets,Inc .an institutional brokerage firm that transacted the orders of major accounts including money managers and managers of mutual funds. It was my experience that when there was a great deal of movement in the market, many managers were able to change their fund affiliations due to their performances.  No manager wants to take over his predecessors portfolio and therefore, after reviewing the portfolio, he would eliminate the stocks that he felt should not be part of his own portfolio.  This left him with the ability to purchase those stocks that he preferred.  In this way,  the performance of the portfolio would be entirely his own.  The buys and sells would create larger execution costs that will impact the performance of the fund and the individual investors.  If the manager is performing well, the impact of the cost will be absorbed,  but if he is not, the impact of those transaction costs may be extreme.  It is very important for an investor to follow the managers and their performances.  If a manager is changed in the fund, there will be a change in the performance of the fund due to the change of the portfolio holdings.
Since we executed the orders for these funds, and when there was a great deal of activity in the market, it was apparent that the managers were readjusting there portfolios.

I am the Author of “Breaking Down the Walls”.  This book is my memoir of my 50 courageous and successful years in the financial industry.  I started a mutual fund and two brokerage firms during my career.
