How did the meeting go? The roadshow was amazing – lots of blue-rinse old dears wanting to know when we were going to launch a technology fund. It must be the top of the bull market!

You were missed, but when I said what you were doing they felt somewhat mollified. It’s a new boutique that’s made the approach – two highly paid rocket scientists with a taste for arbitrage. I’m sure we can see them off.

Subject: Fancy a profile?

MM has been on – they want to feature you in their profile slot. You know the sort of thing – what’s it like to be a senior fund manager, how has the business changed in 30 years. I was right that you started 30 years ago, wasn’t I?

You must be joking! You’re old enough to be my dad. I just fancied learning what it’s like to be a city high flier – I rather fancy having a go myself. Anyway, I’ve someone else to show me the ropes now.

Popped into the travel agents at lunchtime. How do you fancy a cruise? We’ve never been on one and I’ve always fancied the experience.

It was a surprise to learn you were up for replacing Fred. Do you know him? He’ll be a hard act to follow, but if you fancy buying me lunch, I’ll give you the inside track.
