Frank Casey on Taking Down Madoff and Keeping Profits Up
Frank Casey joins Kim and Lucas to discuss how his background as an options expert helped identify the Ponzi scheme that the secretive money manager Bernie Madoff had built.
Frank Casey’s motives weren’t all altruistic, as he explains, clients he wanted were wrapped up in Madoff’s fraud and Casey couldn’t compete with the fake returns Madoff would create for clients. But, Casey explains, Bernie Madoff was “a cancer” and was a threat to our entire financial system so Casey stayed on the case for years until Madoff was ultimately taken down.
This episode explores Casey’s background that has kept him honest, resilient, and consistently striving to better himself and the world around him throughout his career.
