Loan Ranger: The early bird catches the Pisco Sour

Early-rising bankers have been basking in daylight since clocks were turned back an hour over the weekend.

One banker who will appreciate the end of daylight saving is Rabobank’s Peter Hursthouse — who likes an early start and is in the office by 7am. Now Hursthouse can enjoy some daylight on his journey to work in the ungodly hours.

But don’t ask Stuart Moon about his morning routine. The man likes to pound the treadmill for several miles a few mornings a week — before so much as a morning croissant at his desk at Lloyds.

Move over Mario Testino — Commerzbank’s Reinhard Haas knows how to take a picture. The man directed GlobalCapital journalists with expert style for an impromptu photo shoot in Berlin earlier this month.

Peter Ellemann of ANZ has been sharing the woes of the beleaguered journalist as he was tasked with writing a quarterly review of the loan market. Presumably Ellemann the Wordsmith wrote his review in rhyming couplets. 

Don’t ask Mathias Noack for a Peruvian Pisco Sour — the man is bound by marriage to tell you that the notorious cocktail is a Chilean export and the Peruvians can lay no claim to it. Both countries have a town called Pisco where the base liquor is said to originate.
