Clients and all this transparency business - it’s all very well
till you get to Monte Carlo on the year’s biggest jolly, isn’t it? Many
are the ways in which they try to get out of paying - and those
financial services clients, they’re the worst.
Did we really see one eminent financial marketer involved in a robbery
from Loews Casino (it was only a glass, but theft is theft)? Did Mr Big
Rankin’ Banking Client really have his brand new corporate credit card
rejected in the local pizzeria? And was it true that his zillion franc
note turned out not to be legal tender?
And which respected client spent the evening at the hotel bar muttering
about the anglophobic bar staff only to have them chase after him when
he did a (completely absent-minded, of course) runner?
