Moreover I was extremely impressed that when I responded to the article I received a response on the same day from Andrew which was very well considered and reasoned. I am very far removed from a financial services background (actually you can check me out on Google) so it is very heartening to witness at first hand such a response at a time when the financial industry in general is under a very critical spotlight. Thank you for your part in that. I will certainly continue buying the magazine.”
