Charles Bunbury is the bumbling, affable chairman of 200-year-old private bank, Tuftons. The only problem is he knows nothing about banking. When a rogue trader leaves Tuftons, Charles needs to turn into the wolf of Wall Street; unfortunately, he is more the labrador of Liverpool Street. He puts everything on the line in a risky attempt to secure Tufton’s future, but ends up breaking the bank and losing his wife Penelope’s family fortune. Charles’s only hope is a homeless, self-trained financial wizard Oscar; his estranged, anti-capitalist daughter, Annabel and his dog. It’s not much of a team. And they don’t have much of a plan.
