Beer for a year? You’re having a laugh
I received details of a charity concert being performed at Leadenhall Market in the City of London next week. The show will be performed by a band called Client Number 9 – whose members all work in the Lloyd’s insurance market – in aid of the The Mark Evison Foundation and Welsh Guards Afghanistan Fund (see http://www.clientnumber9.co.uk/index.htm).
The band has also arranged a raffle and an auction. While some of the goodies on offer look extremely biddable, one – free beer for a year – shows just how different the personalities of the FX and insurance markets are, let alone publishing. Whoever wins will be entitled to 365 pints. A pint a day for insurers, or about three months’ worth by my editor’s calculations.
