Gresham College was founded in 1557 under the will of Sir Thomas Gresham for the purpose of providing free public lectures of a high academic standard. We continue to fulfill this role, with lectures at Barnard's Inn and the Museum of London, although we have dropped the original obligation to repeat each lecture in Latin. All lectures are streamed on line on the Gresham College Facebook page and via the Gresham College website. Past lectures and written transcripts are on the website for viewing and free download. Think of Gresham College as London's version of Ted Talks.

No interesting RNSs, so let's discuss macro.It feels uncannily calm, with Brexit just 10 weeks away. Can it really be that the short and medium term damage has been fully discounted in the markets - even in small cap companies that will benefit less than the large caps from a further fall in Sterling? We seem set to have major political turmoil this Autums, as…

Thanks, Steve. RNS from £EQLS at 10.19 (following press speculation) says the price will be 110 and there will be at open offer on the same terms. It's a tiny discount to raise £14m which IMHO implies that the institutions have confidence and an appetite to invest.
