, which supported the Asian-facing book until this week: Since the beginning, the management and staff at First Fidelity have been incredibly supportive. Leaving First Fidelity was the hardest decision we have made in our entire lives. The separation was amicable, and we all remain good friends. Our decision to leave was not a strategic move against First Fidelity, but a necessary move to insure our continued growth in the Asian market. We are honored to have worked with First Fidelity and have complete confidence they will continue to be an industry leader.
