Brian Tora: Markets face many varied obstacles

Lunch with Psigma’s Bill Mott is always a pleasure, even when he puts forward a point of view that conflicts with my own reading of the current situation. His summary of probabilities puts continuing above average inflation further down the likely outcomes than I have been doing, with a persistent period of below average growth […]

  1. Corr, this guy’s got real staying power hasn’t he? Joins in April 2011 ( no doubt telling them at his job interview what a stayer he is and will get the job seen through) then jumps ship just over a year later before he’s got his feet properly under the executive desk

    How flakey’s that?

    And then the bland warm words (straight out of the PR handbook) from HQ as the guy heads off.

  2. Maybe, just maybe, he has seen the writing on the wall for large networks post RDR!

    I think we will see many more senior people leave the industry (to pursue other career opportunities) OR heaven forfend, does he have knowledge of something going on at Tenet that the firm does not want exposed. Conspiracy theorist contributions welcome here, any Tenet guys or gals know what is going on over there?

  3. Think you’ll find we couldn’t get him authorised by the FSA. All gone downhill since Simon left.

  4. Perhaps he could not get his SIF(Significant influence function) from the FSA which he has been waiting for over a year, per Lord Hodgeson statement. Asks the question why they took him on with the FSA investigation going on per Montpellieir. Would they have checked the background of any IFA’s wanting to join from Honister, I bet they did making them wait 6 months till they can operate and make a living.

  5. This network will go under, then maybe they will look back and regret how they treated their smaller AR’s when they revised their fee structure which was funnily enough around the same time this guy joined, coincidence?
