I was casually glancing through the Irish Slimes yesterday when my eyes fell on this photo. I had no idea who the man was but was instantly taken by the searing intelligence, firm gaze, honesty and integrity that shone through. I mused that, had I a few billion to spare I’d unhesitatingly hand it over to him for safe keeping, no questions asked.
Imagine my amazement then when, on reading further, I found that UBS had taken exactly the same view! Smart boys, UBS.
Oh wait! Reading still further it seems that this splendid chap has just lost them billions on the ‘trading’ (i.e. gambling) floor. Surely not. But yes. I confess I got it totally wrong. Just like UBS.
Maybe this celebrating diversity isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
