The Diary would like to warn readers against becoming too enthusiastic at conferences.
It seems there was more going on at the Funds Network IFA Forum in London than just the usual fund manager chit-chat. The delegates got rather carried away with the conference's Superstars theme.
Things got so competitive that First State's Richard Jones challenged Fidelity's Tom Carron, Invesco Perpetual's Bob Yerbury and First State's Angus Tulloch to a press-up competition to raise £500 for charity. The three fund managers dropped to the floor and gave the audience 10.
The Diary applauds such athleticism but there is a time and a place.
