Thanks for todays meeting. Although it was fun, there is the serious side of having this fantastic ‘old chapter’ because of your ability and professionalism. I know I have said thanks before, but now I have stopped work it is for real! I can see it is an exciting intellectual challenge to produce a first rate portfolio, but the other side is that behind ever pension there is a pensioner. Our lives as pensioners is transformed by your talent, and the fact that we do have fun most of the time is entirely underpinned by the portfolio you have developed. The other key thing is confidence – we are confident about a future because we feel financially safe. So, when you have bad days remember what a difference you have made to us. Thanks Gareth – Mr J Andrewes
