Q4 was dire followed by a dire Q1. I know quite a few MDs who have been asked by their respective banks to put together "living will's" (what an arse of a term) in the event this persists to Q42019.

I.e. how do we cut 10 people to 2 to retain the knowledge for the future...

"Yeh, after that blow out I bid the bonds at 76 and you hit man...You're 77/81 now? Cool man...What? Do I care at 80? No mate... I'm 73 bid now...I'm sure you didn't just load up just for me...".

Are you seeing a bad Q1? I thought everybody was up.

That's why "Cloud business solutions" are advertised...

Yes, seeing a bad Q1 in my seat (but my comment was actually intended as generic across debt - trading through to DCM).

You must be in a better shop!

Two-man-and-a-dog shop, and it isn't even clear which one is the dog...

So I don't really see that much other than what people want to tell me. Which they sometimes do, sometimes don't.
