About this title

Synopsis:

Making the most of an opportunity to offer high-yielding products backed by junk bonds, Fred Carr built a bankrupt life insurance firm called First Executive into a company that had $19 billion in assets before it collapsed in 1991

From Library Journal:

Making the most of an opportunity to offer high-yielding products backed by junk bonds, Fred Carr built a bankrupt life insurance firm called First Executive into a company that had $19 billion in assets before it collapsed in 1991. Schulte, a senior vice president with Executive Life, describes Carr as an eccentric personality with preference for outrageous promotional events. Although this is more specialized and less entertaining than most business histories, it's another story of 1980s financial excess. For larger business collections.
