And even though there clearly was a time i might accept an answer such as for example, “We’re already too exposed”, or “It’s not attractive enough”, or “We’re not investing into the UK”, or “It’s too little” and thus on and so on, we now need to know every thing there was behind your choice. If they’re too ‘exposed’ then I’d like to understand what asset class they’re confronted with currently and where will they be lacking or under-exposed.
