    Using your logic amp insider, obviously means you have no talent otherwise you would no longer be an insider. Here’s some free career advice, if you dont like the place you work at, move!


      david jones, do you know how many people have been retrenched lately in the finance industry

      come the bull market i am out of here, off to macquarie where they actually pay a bonus!!!


    sean heneghan (van’s boss) was scared of van’s talents

    so in true amp capital style, when somebody more junior with talent threatens you, shoot them!

    all fact here, no fiction


    Poor bastard, another good man shot by amp
