I am Frank Giustra and this is my personal Blog, where I share with you some of the lessons I have learnt in life, books I have read, my thoughts and opinions on current affairs and finance as well as insights from fascinating people I have met, and adventures I have had. It is also a place for me to share stories about my passion for food, films and travel, recipes and tips from my kitchen as well as news from some of the incredible initiatives my philanthropic foundations are working on.

I have been lucky enough to have a long and expansive career. I grew up as the son of Italian immigrants who moved to Canada before I was born, and started my career in the investment banking sector before realizing my entrepreneurial spirit and founding various companies including Lionsgate Entertainment. I am currently the CEO of the Fiore Group, a firm managing private equity investments and companies, specializing in natural resources, entertainment, art, food and lifestyle and now own Domenica Fiore, an award-winning premium Italian olive oil company.

A good deal of my time and resource now goes into supporting charities within both my international and domestic charity foundations as well as organizations I have co-founded.
