Peter Hancock viewed almost every aspect of the world around him as a complex intellectual puzzle to be solved, and he especially loved developing elaborate theories about how to push money around the world more efficiently. When it came to his staff, he obsessively ruminated on how to build the team for optimal performance. Most of all, though, he loved brainstorming ideas. The team called his exuberant outbursts of creativity "Come to Planet Pluto" moments, because most of the notions he tossed out were better suited to science fiction than banking. But they loved his intensity, and they were passionately loyal to him. They were also bonded by the spirit of being pioneers.
