    We also get regular updates which gives comfort. As an example this was in my email box this morning

    Dear All,

    Silver streaks on the horizon

    Signs that a new government standstill in Washington could be averted for the time being, and that the USA and China are succeeding in bringing the trade dispute closer together, ensured a good mood on the stock markets yesterday.

    US President Donald Trump had previously signaled that the US was open to postponing the March 1 deadline for a trade agreement. In the US budget dispute, it still seems unclear whether it will really be possible to avert another "shutdown" thanks to the fundamental agreement in parliament.

    In the Brexit poker, Prime Minister Theresa May called on the parties to keep on their nerves about six weeks before the scheduled date of resignation. Further negotiations with the EU are necessary in order to reach a final Brexit agreement, on which Parliament is expected to vote on February 27.

    We work with LGT Vestra. The main point of contact is a Jacqueline Crawley. Their equity guy is Steve Jenkins and they have a chap called Schmidt who looks after the bonds.

    We had a pretty thorough beauty parade (which included Alastair Meek's hedgehog scheme and gave me the chance to meet him) and they really shone out as people who took a genuine interest in us and did not just produce the usual cut and paste. We have found them very easy to work with. They seem a good balance of being small enough to care and large enough to cover the options. Tell them I say hi if you get in touch.
