I first came across the term "central risk book" at an event in Rome a couple of weeks back. It seems like it's the banks’ answer to the dark pool caps that will be upon us in a little over ...

Mexico blues

Back from a couple of weeks in Mexico where it seemed the whole world was going steadily insane (or maybe that was just the tequila). Anyways, it was reassuring to start the week with another "wo...

Brexit hangover

I was out fairly late last night at an industry function and almost forgot that I had an internal Brexit briefing this morning. As the memories of the fine Barolos I'd been served rescinded, I engaged...

Bumpy road ahead?
