Welcome to the first "Abigail with attitude” column, a regular no-holds-barred commentary that takes a fresh, light-hearted look at the firms and people involved in the financial markets as well as the issues that keep bankers up at night. I aim to be different and daring rather than malicious and malevolent.
“You were always so outspoken,” my first City boss, matinee idol look-alike David Reid Scott (now chairman of corporate advisory firm Hawkpoint), sighed when I told him about my latest career adventure. Outspoken or not, the aim (with your help) is to leave the markets “shaken but not stirred”. So please send me your input and feedback (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know what’s on your mind.
