“I was interviewed by many of the partners,” recalls Pandit. “And the dominant theme was doing first-class business in a first-class way. It was a big driver of people’s behaviour, of how they conducted business and ultimately their careers.” President and chairman Richard Fisher was a big influence. He was an early enthusiast for computerized analysis of financial data.  “Modern finance theory was just beginning to be put into practice,” says Pandit.
