"Mr Scrooge is notorious and not to be crossed" - London Financial Guide
"A tight-fisted hand at the grindstone... hard and sharp as flint, from which no steel had ever struck out generous fire; secret, and self-contained, and solitary as an oyster." - Charles Dickens
I am a man of business who owes no debts and makes no promises he cannot keep. While I am not, and have no desire to be, well-liked, my name in the professional world is unimpeachable, and my counting-house the most industrious in all of London.
Managing Director, Scrooge and Marley
My business is being mindful of money, and I am as careful of my own as of my clients'. We count and keep pace with the financial comings and goings of London's illustrious institutions, including every prison and workhouse in the capital. We are only myself and my clerk Cratchit, but can manage such work as a firm far larger. My business occupies me constantly.

Financial Director, Fezziwig Holdings
On inheriting monetary control of old Fezziwig's company I increased its profitability threefold by dismissing excess staff and ending a period of wrong-headed wastefulness and inefficiency. I left the company after overseeing its acquisition by the respectable Dorrit & Gladstone group.

Apprentice, Fezziwig Holdings
Fezziwig took me in after leaving school, noticing my sharp mathematical ability and business acumen. Fezziwig Holdings' notorious cash flow problems ceased shortly after my appointment, and I helped bring the company to profitability in spite of my employer's generosity of spirit.
