Master attended a most interesting Tacitus Lecture by Christine Lagarde IMF Managing Director – organised by the Worshipful Company of World Traders.

In the new Mary Poppins film a new villain is a slick banker, but Christine Lagarde suggested young people today should join the financial industry to find a broader sense of purpose.  “The genius of her character is that she is serving others – with dignity, with a kind heart, with honesty and with a wicked sense of humour.  I think this is a good description of what the financial industry should be all about”.
