A wealth of knowledge

In the spirit of annual review prevalent in the December 16 issue of Money Marketing, I would like to express my thanks and appreciation for Julian Stevens’ regular contributions to the letters pages.

As a regular reader of Money Marketing’s letters, the first thing I do is look to see if he has contributed. To date, I have not read anything that he has written that I have disagreed with.
