I note there is a
movement afoot to revert to plain language and traditional type mortgages in these changes we see sweeping the financial industry.

I'll watch with interest to see if the survivors embrace a more transparent, simpler to understand range of financial instruments, both wholesale and retail.
The Finextra team could certainly help. If you haven't had a look at the
Community rules, do so. They are the epitome of plain language. It has been suggested that I pull no punches. These are lovely.
