The Retelling of The Richest Man in Babylon – Chapter 2

The Retelling of The Richest Man in Babylon – Chapter 2

Nov 03, 2014

In the last couple of weeks, I shared with you videos of Finance Secretary Cesar V. Purisima and Bo Sanchez reading the Introduction and Chapter 1 of my latest book, respectively.

Today I present Chapter 2 as read by Hans B. Sicat, the president of the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE). I wish to share with you some trivia about Hans. The “B.” in his name is not the initial of his mother’s maiden name, which is Makasiar. “B.” is the initial for Brinker, his second name. This is not a common practice among Filipinos who use their mother’s maiden name as their middle initial. Our president does the same. Check out your Philippine currency bills, you’ll see Benigno S. Aquino III, not “C.” for Cojuangco.

Hans started his career in Finance as an analyst at Citibank. He has two decades of international investment banking experience for various firms of the Citigroup.

I will share with you more about my interview with him in the next few days. For the meantime, let’s hear it from PSE’s topman Hans Sicat as he reads to us the second chapter of The Retelling of The Richest Man in Babylon: Arkhad’s Dream.
