Reaping the rewards

I read Money Marketing’s Leader last week and glimpsed Mr Cheung’s piece (will read fully later).

Very briefly, I can answer in one sentence, with-out covering all the usual well worn points: “Carry on old chap. In the last six weeks, two accountants have sent me three (now ex) clients of St James’s Place”.

I do not have to jump up and down about independence while the Institute of Chartered Accountants and the Law Society so plainly understand what being independent is all about. The guys at St. James (and others similar) can plough their furrow. I am happy just to reap the fruit.
