As someone who has built a very successful investment company and made millions for his clients, by 'doing things differently', Peter Hargreaves is uniquely qualified to comment on running a growing business and how to manage investments. Told through a lively mixture of personal anecdote and incisive analysis, In for a Penny is the fascinating story of one man's adventures in business and in life. Peter also reveals a rare glimpse into the world of investments, based on experience gained from over twenty- five years in the business and from following his golden rule in business life: Put the client first, the business second and self third.
