For Investment Week's new video series tracking the progress of CASCAID, the industry-wide initiative to raise over £1m for Great Ormond Street Hospital, senior reporter Jayna Rana heads to Broadgate Tower to take part in the abseil challenge.
On 26 August, over 100 people in the asset management industry attempted to abseil down the 541ft Broadgate Tower in the City of London.
Despite very wet and windy conditions, most of the CASCAID abseilers managed to complete the task while others faced the challenge a week later.
Participants for the challenge included a team from Investec Asset Management led by UK MD David Aird, BMO's Paul Niven and Artemis' Simon Rogers.
The event raised a total of around £50,000, bringing the current total for the entire initiative as at 25 September to £579,747.
