Well we saw a lot of very small managers summit just a few dozen million under management so very tiny asset managers also some very large -- represented but it's not the case that only the biggest and the best. Are only the largest ones are recognized where. And ambivalent as to the size of the firm wanna show with what the best funds were regardless. Where they are in the industry.
