Any Other Business - 29/08

Wealth management firm Vestra hosted the unofficial Square Mile sports day last night, holding its second annual dodgeball tournament at the Honourable Artillery Company’s sports ground in Moorgate. Of course fancy dress was mandatory, with teams from Investec, Aberdeen Asset Management, Barclays and BNY Mellon all looking the part. More competitive than the dodgeball was the battle for the Best Fancy Dress prize, which went to M&G Investment Management as Alice and Wonderland, although The Capitalist would have gone for RBS dressed as “The Ball Busters.” The antidote to a hard afternoon of exercise was an afterparty at local club Abacus, chosen by the firm for its convenient location only, The Capitalist was assured.
