"When a handful of Victorian Haligonians gathered in 1887 to form The Eastern Canada Savings and Loan Company, they could have never predicted that their little firm would one day form the cornerstone of a mighty corporation: Central Trust. This Maritime cmpany, which now enjoys a prominent place among Canada's financial institutions, is the culmination of a long-held dream of two shrewd financiers, Reuben Cohen and Leonard Ellen. Together they concieved the 'four pillars of financial services' concept long before its popularization; together they initiated a series of takeovers, both bitter and sweet, that placed them at the forefront when the new era in personal financial services suddenly dawned." - from rear cover.
