Well done to everyone at DWS. The fact that you managed to do this against the backdrop of the troubles makes it even more amazing. And that you haven’t sold your soul to anyone more menacing than sex, drugs and rock n roll is the icing on the cake. Brings a tear to my eye. We’re thrilled to be part of your success and I don’t need to tell you how great it has been working with you over the years.
