“We do not invest in high risk vehicles such as derivatives and junk bonds, nor do we invest in the types of structured transactions that are currently causing such turmoil in the markets. We stay away from them not because we don't understand them - but because we do understand them - and the risk they entail.”

Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight
