The Investor and the Hedge Fund Manager

A quick Friday joke:

The investor hands the hedge fund manager a £10 note.

"Get me a drink that meets my needs. If I like your choice, I’ll buy the drinks all night" says investor before leaving for the toilet.

Confused by the demand, the hedge fund manager shrugs and orders them a pint of Guinness each.

The barman pours the drinks, takes the cash, and then tells the hedge fund manager "You should have got him a vodka."

"Really? Why vodka over Guinness?" ask the bemused fund manager?

"More transparency, greater liquidity" replies the barman.

Too late! The investor had already gone . . .
