Acquire assets, fire 'em on a platform (say a seg version of Nucleus for example?!), then flog the lot to the highest bidder. All well and good, but not sure where this leaves TCF for customers and fairness for the PBI (Poor B****y Infantry- i.e. the individual FAs)

If someone wants your assets, make sure you know what you are getting into.
