(Tommy Lowe) #1

Happy World Cup Day everybody!

To celebrate I thought I’d share some fascinating ( :wink: ) Goldman reading for you all, check out their summary page below, but if you just want to jump straight into the report itself you can do so by using this link.

Who are you backing to lift the fabled trophy this year?

And it looks like one bank called it correctly…allez les bleus ! :fr:

I was talking to my friend about this, UBS managed to get our position right, at least, though they got the top 3 completely wrong (link to report here) :joy:
