Why was the broker set up?

Basil Fry was managing director of an insurance broker in the City who got disillusioned. He literally came home one night and decided that he was going to set up from a table in the shed in the garden. And that’s what he did back in 1970. He had a young-ish son Chris who joined and they really did quite well through the seventies.
