Ivan Diamond was a very important mentor to me. As a young kid of around 14 or 15 years of age, I used to earn pocket money cutting the grass on his (very large, as I recall) lawn. But what was memorable to this day were the conversations, during breaks or after work, with Ivan and Penny about the law, and the securities industry. I went on to have a career in the investment banking industry which took me to New York, Singapore, and London. The seed for this was planted in those discussions many years ago. That this man took the time to engage with and mentor a kid who worked in his yard about his area of professional expertise tells you everything you need to know about the character of Ivan Diamond. I am forever grateful for his guidance and advice, and shall miss him greatly.
