    I used to do all my note taking without using vowels..This is before days of mobile phones & text speak..Amazing how much quicker it was and still easy enough to read.

    A is a vowel...

    I don't really see the problem, but don't think it's good either. Maybe just 10-20 years too late to have been considered "cool" or "edgy" in their approach. Which is of course what you want from an investment manager.

    Don't understand how changing a name makes them more agile as a company though?

    Maybe all the time spent typing out standard life Aberdeen was stopping them from getting stuff done?
