Benoit Robert
Beating the Odds: the Life Journey of a Broker

Born into a humble family, Benoit Robert rose to become one of the Canadian finance industry’s outstanding securities brokers. A “little guy from Montreal North”, Robert delivers a powerful account of the changes he has seen in the industry over the past 25 years, and a moving insight into his own self-doubts. Despite his dizzying social ascent, once at the top he wonders whether he has wasted his life. “When I was a boy, I really wanted to be a doctor and save the world. I saw myself as a kind of Gandhi. I wonder whether I’ve missed my calling. […] Even if you’re worth millions at the time of your death, who cares? I want to touch people, but I wonder whether I can do so without money being involved. If I were totally broke, would I have the same clout? I doubt it very much.”

This frank and unvarnished biography chronicles some of Quebec and Canada’s major financial transactions and describes key moments in a life driven by the pursuit of success. Having reached the age of 53, Benoit Robert wanted to share his life story “just for others”. He does so boldly, unconcerned by what people may say. In baring his soul, heedless of the risks such an endeavour entails, he tackles the age-old question of what exactly constitutes a successful life, or how to connect with one’s deepest identity, and at what price.
