Brogue trader

It’s been an eventful few weeks in the world of banking. Investment bank UBS has been hitting the headlines harder than Beyonce’s burgeoning baby bump!

Just a quick recap, as I don’t want anyone to nod off: The Swiss firm was in a spot of bother after one of its traders, Kweku Adoboli, was accused of fraud, costing the company £1.3 billion. (Just think of all the shoes you could buy with that kind of cash…)

The latest drama is that UBS’ chief executive, Oswald Grübel, has quit!
Sad times.

But perhaps this post will help cheer him up, as I’m rounding up some of the hottest brogues in London!

Now, there’s a lot here, so I suggest you get yourself a cup of tea, maybe put on a playlist and scroll your way to heaven.
