And yet that was the story that rim has been around for a while but it's it's getting more more currency yesterday there was that story out saying. The most resorted boarded and -- three potential success in time did we become a couple of people around as well. And in it that the idea that that some might reach privacy effect others. Why get onto over the little deeply regret if you hate the idea that banks got spelled out that fish three years she's on the finances that. They were still a -- I think they just got out of the top when he when she took her to a CFA. And -- -- released a vomited and pick a blanket to beat.

It is especially if that is another topic that. Actually is useful to have some sort of Dobson as an athletic ability doesn't come out last night they gonna console it's in the back office functions that -- site. There's a gradual move towards doing and just going to -- Jacqueline doesn't have financial in I don't know how. And you do you need to have that easily he was a CEO it. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- That job is a bit like being the vice president and -- that you brought in when needed but you don't necessarily have.
