Really sorry, but I’m away for the next 2 weeks – Liz felt the urge to go on a cruise. Can’t say I’m too keen, but you have to keep the little woman sweet, especially given the hours I’ve been putting in at the office.

I know you’re off at the end of the week, but I thought you should know you’ve every chance of leading the 6 months and 1 year IMA tables at the end of April. Your punts on oil, commodities and the LSE have paid off handsomely.

It’ll have to be June for MM now. Apparently they fix up these profile interviews months in advance and are not best pleased at being messed about. I hope the cruise is worth it.

I have you to thank for climbing up the performance charts. Not only have oil and copper continued to run, even the LSE came up trumps. I’m nervous about going away, though. Let’s lock in some gains this week.

I never thought I’d find myself looking forward to a cruise, but I’ll be relieved to get out of this madhouse. I’m taking my phone and blackberry as I’ve a lot of positions open with Phil. Whatever did we do before new technology?

I know you’re off on hols, but Luke has come up with a proposal for a property fund based on indices. I’d like your take on whether it will fly in the IFA market. You can email your thoughts from the ship.
