The de Vries family has a long history of banking and finance, and Saul is no exception. He inherited the family business from his father and has expanded it greatly under his leadership. He is known for his shrewd business sense and his ability to make tough decisions quickly. He is also a master negotiator and is known for getting the best deals for his banking clients.
