[A GREAT ROOM OVERLOOKING THE CITY OF BRAAVOS. A LONG TABLE. THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS IS SEATED. THE CEO IS WRAPPING UP.]

CEO: In conclusion, the restarting of slave trade following the death of the Targaryen queen has increased our rate of return. After a few years of slow growth due to geopolitical uncertainty in Westeros and Essos, it looks like the Iron Bank will be fully recovered before the end of winter.

CHAIR: That is excellent news and calls for many toasts at tonight’s gala celebration. Before we conclude, is there any new business to discuss?

CEO: Yes, our Westeros agent Tycho Nestoris reports the possibility of some new loans to the new regime across the Narrow Sea.

CHAIR: [Arches eyebrow] Oh, really? I suppose we should hear him out. The chair recognizes Tycho Nestoris.
