Deutsche's other superwoman
While Deutsche Bank officials worry about alleged "superwoman" Nicola Horlick's next move, a senior Deutsche man in Hong Kong is more worried about a genuine superwoman: his own wife.
Simon Murray, Deutsche Bank's executive chairman of Asia-Pacific, is bracing himself for the nerve-racking experience of tracking his wife Jennifer as she attempts to fly round the world in a helicopter. Murray, the former right-hand man of Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-Shing, says she's flying his red Robinson 44 piston-engine helicopter, which makes the venture particularly dangerous.
The journey round the world will take three-and-a-half months, or 3,200 flying hours, and is sponsored by bp which will leave fuel at strategic points. Beginning at Denham, England she will fly east, with her co-pilot, Quentin "Q" Smith. She'll see her husband in Hong Kong, where she is scheduled to land two days before the handover to China.
"It's good to see the spirit of adventure isn't dead," says a concerned-but-proud Simon Murray. He bought the helicopter for himself, but the Deutsche banker has managed to clock up only 120 hours' flying time compared to his wife's 600.
Jennifer Murray, 46, was never meant to be the pilot.
