After fleeing Iran when he was a baby in 1978, Reza Jahangiri and his family knew

the American Dream as chief executive of Orange-based American Advisors Group, the
nation’s top player in the reverse mortgage lending industry. … A University of California-Irvine
graduate with a bachelor of science in economics, Jahangiri was involved in the health
industry before entering the reverse mortgage sector.
