The Occupation, Viewed Through a Financer's Eye

Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian Territories just doesn’t make financial sense, says pilot-turned-entrepreneur Tal Keinan on this episode of Journeys.

Israeli-American entrepreneur and financier Tal Keinan is the co-founder and CEO of KCPS Clarity, an Israeli investment management firm, and among the few Israeli investors active in the Palestinian Authority.

Born and raised in the States, Keinan moved to Israel when he was 21 and served as a fighter pilot in the Israel Air Force for the next decade. He then pursued a career in finance, co-founding KCPS Clarity – Israel’s first full-spectrum asset-management firm – whose stated mission is to play a leading role in forging an Israeli financial services industry of global standing.

On this episode of Journeys, Keinan shares his analysis of the present and future state of Israel’s economy and politics, and explains why he believes putting an end to the occupation is a matter of utmost importance – both from the eyes of a former military careerist, and from the eyes of a financier.
