Talking about SIAS means also talking about Mr David Gerald, the original founder and president of SIAS. I recalled meeting the man himself over a decade ago while doing my Final Year University Project on Corporate Governance and interviewed him. He is a good man who is passionate in his drive to help retail investors.
