Jake van der Kamp is a native of the Netherlands, a citizen of Canada and a resident of Hong Kong for more than 40 years. He has enjoyed a varied career, working first as an Asian investment analyst and then as a financial columnist for Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post.

More recently he has turned novelist, rewriting old fairy tales told anew for today’s times. In this book he returns to his career interests with a “how to” manual on investment.
