Without any shadow of a doubt, the film I have watched most often is Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I never knew that the Bridgekeeper would come to mind as I thought about a new fund idea!
[King Arthur and his knights arrive at "The Bridge of Death" - guarded by a Bridgekeeper]
He who would cross the Bridge of Death
Must answer me
These questions three
'Ere the other side he see.
RN as Bridgekeeper:
Do ... you pay UK capital gains tax?
Do ... you hold, or want to hold, gold as an investment?
Do ... you think gold may rise by more than 15% in your investment time-horizon?
If yes is the answer to all three questions for you or your clients then I would like to hear from you - I have something that I am certain will be of interest to discuss.
Expert / sophisticated investors and regulated financial services businesses only please.
(By the way, the scene before the bridge is great)
Now, we are about to attempt to cross ... the Bridge of Death!
The gate-keeper of the Bridge will ask any who attempt to cross five questions ---
(pause) Oh, yes, three. He who successfully answers these five questions ...
(slightly longer pause) Ah, three, then...er, may pass in safety
However, anyone who fails to correctly answer all five questions -
I KNOW IT'S BLOODY THR -- ahem, yes, of course, three ... (black look at Bedevere) ...will be cast into the Gorge of Eternal Peril!
