Are you considering investing in the United Kingdom? Hi, this is Roger Groh, at Groh Asset Management. How are you going to do that? Well, with London being one of the world financial centers, most major brokerage firms and banks have representatives based in London that can help you buy or sell stock. That'd be one of the ways that you could retain your account in your own country, and have a reliable source in London for buying and selling. If you need names, Barclays is the largest bank and brokerage firm in the U.K., and that might also be a good place to start. Like all banks and brokerage firms the bank itself doesn't mean anything. It always comes down to the quality and knowledge of the individual person that you're working with, so you would have to get referrals from whatever person you chose to begin to work with and check them out. You want to be sure that they are very knowledgeable about whatever you are going to be buying. It'll help you stay out of the woods. Other things you can do; well certainly, you can go online right from where you are and trade stock almost from any country. And in London, being, like I said, a world financial center, they you can go right online and buy stock there frequently traded in other countries, so that's another option for you. Hope that helps. I'm Roger Groh, at Groh Asset, and thank you very much for spending time with me.
