There is an article of note in one of today's Sunday newspapers profiling Steve Morgan - the founder of the housebuilder Redrow (RDW) - who is on the cusp of retiring from the business for a second time. You have got to applaud such entrepreneurial fervour and capability to have turned a £5,000 loan from his Father into a company today that is worth a cool £2.1 billion - and I hope he enjoys his upcoming retirement. However the article was noteworthy for a couple of other reasons, one of which was mentioned...and one of which was not even hinted at.
