Blaze of glory

T.Bailey fund of funds guru Jason Britton is either very unlucky or a jinx. Last week, he went to see Barings at its offices, only to find one of the ground floor shops beneath it ablaze.

Next stop that day was New Star’s swanky Knightsbridge offices but after arriving for his appointment, he found himself embroiled in a full fire drill and was made to march down 10 floors fully suited on the hottest day of the year.l Artemis sponsored the rather esoteric Great Kindrochit Quadrathlon earlier this month, which saw plucky contestants complete a one-mile swim across Loch Tay, which we are told is very wet, dark and cold.

Next up, they climbed up several hills equivalent to going a third of the way up Everest. Those aching limbs then had to cycle 34 miles around the loch before slicing a water melon in half with a sword. Their fine efforts will fund redevelop programmes in Ethiopia.
