“I found your last column regarding those who leave the City smug and self-serving,” a friend reproached. “The sub-text was: ‘Look at me, I left. I’m doing something different now’.” He may have a point. But when I read about Amelia Fawcett, resigning as chief operating officer of Morgan Stanley International, I thought I had a point. Amelia was frequently dubbed one of the top women in finance, so it is intriguing that she is giving up management responsibility to become a senior adviser.
