He mentions something I believe has a direct bearing on you, the clients and prospects of investment managers, albeit in a roundabout way.

He reminds firms that (successful) marketing is actually the process of getting to know what the customer wants and needs. If the product addresses their fears, their anxieties, their goals and their aspirations, then and only then can you expect they will buy the product willingly, without a need to coerce them into buying.

Assuming he is correct, what then is the customer’s role in the process?

jesse_livermoreJesse Livermore first became famous after the Panic of 1907 when he sold the market short as it crashed. He noticed conditions where a lack of capital existed to buy stock.

Accordingly, he predicted that there would be a sharp drop in prices when many speculators were simultaneously forced to sell by margin calls and a lack of credit. With the lack of capital, there would be no buyers in sight to absorb the sold stock, further driving down prices. After the crash and its aftermath, he was worth $3 million.
