Hi Simon, what did you do in all cases. Ignore all the short term noise?

First time I see you "panic" Simon. Interesting read about your plans and ideas. Offshore real money been talked a lot about on forum and my take generally was it to be a no brainer. Question would be how late in the day is it?

not panic, panic was with MTN, but yes point taken .. This is years of real pain for SA .. I been positioning mostly to non SA Inc. for a while now, and now doing so more aggressively ..

I Understand and respect. On another point of interest: I know you like DB World and better performance than BNP world. The latter spread so much better?? and maybe also a cheaper entry??

I had a look at the BNP world when it listed and as I recall it 'smart' beta and I don't believe in that theory so stayed with DB
