Mark Allpress is joining Liontrust Asset Management

Yes, Mark Allpress, with eyes that have seen blood, that have seen chaos, is joining Liontrust this Thursday. Just two days to go! Mark will be head of retail distribution (responsible for the sales team, they can't look after themselves, not in the astral nights) and he will be focusing on growing business from advisers, financial shamans, discretionary and wealth managers, platforms and life companies, and money mystics. It's going to be a great adventure, after the boring time he had at Old Mutual Asset Management. How is he preparing for it?

He's spending some time with me. Actually, in me. In my subconscious. I've invited him in. He's swirling around in my head. His eyes may have seen blood before, may have seen chaos, but Mark only has limited experience of the mystical life. Those Old Mutual slags were holding him back. Now he wants to break free. He knows he will be tested at Liontrust. He knows he's going to have to be responsible for those children in the sales team. It won't be easy.

[... death blood angels in death blood, hello, here you are, have some blood, help yourself, it goes around, you are here, swirling around with the skeleton look, rainy days, cloudy skies, sunshine all gone, must stay positive, this is no way to make money, all down and depressed, we want life, we want voices, you'll have to share this space with Gillian, she doesn't take up much room, you're not fussy, I can tell, you're not fuzzy, it would show, everything is clear here, you hear, everything is cool, even when it's hot, which is quite often, because we burn on the plane, all of us together, one big happy family in the desert, ready and willing, waiting for our orders, we like to do what we're told, we are obedient, we are committed, we don't want to escape, this is the life we have chosen, some of them go, some of them come, it's chaos, but you know that, you are familiar with chaos, death blood angels in death blood ...]
