Characters > William's Profile


WILLIAM is a fund manager. The Ultra-Bear, the Prophet of Doom, the Voice in the Wilderness, he has been predicting financial Armageddon for years now and has been left gnashing his teeth in impotent fury as markets defy all logic and soar to dizzying new highs. He is the Cassandra of the financial markets - right, but destined never to be believed. Megabank fired him for refusing to invest his clients’ money in stocks. He has since set up his own wealth management company, pursuing the same bearish strategy and losing investors in droves. He is permanently furious and frustrated, dreaming of the day his views will be vindicated. But will he get any credit even then?
