    Back once again, with a Portuguese flavour

    Ticker | 08 March 2016

    It is definitely March 9th today, not April 1st. I know because I checked the calendar. In which case, I have to offer my heartiest congratulations to the Financial Times for the best April Fools story that isn’t one.

    Ferrari's prancing horse and the ECB's one-trick pony

    Ticker | 10 March 2016

    In the little world of Sol Capital, Wednesday was dominated by two subjects – a look ahead to today’s ECB meeting and the launch and pricing of Ferrari’s €500m seven-year bond.

    Happy St Patrick’s Day to all my Irish friends and also to the millions of Americans who, for one day a year, believe themselves to be Irish too. How nice would it be if Martin Luther King Day were treated in the same way?
