    Ouch… Wilfred was more than just a talking head….always told it like it was. His questioning technique was a lot like his dad’s. He had a way of asking a hard hitting question in a non-caustic way…still getting a straight answer.

    Wilfred, I will miss your interesting perspectives/or insights, with a touch of witty humour.
    You certainly added a presence on the “Closing Hour”.
    Good luck on the next chapter of life.

  3. Genevieve says:

    We will miss you Wilfred.

  4. I will miss watching Wilf on the Closing Bell. I love his demeanor and how he relays financial news and insights – and he has a great accent. Good luck across the pond.

  5. Earl Derouin says:

    Wilfred will be missed. He brings a level of honesty and toughness that is hard to find. Class with a straightforward approach often pointing out the real issues in the interview that the interviewee is not willing to confront.

  6. Kent Urness says:

    Wilfred, I will miss your interviewing skills and analysis. We lived for a decade in London. You have a great combination of financial acumen and pointed questions without being rude to your guests. Good luck.

    Wilf: best to you in your future endeavors!

  13. Christopher Perry says:

    I very much enjoyed your presence and commentary on CNBC. I recall at least one time when an interviewee got very “salty” with you due to your fair but probing questions, but you handled that as a true professional. Good luck with your new position and enjoy your homecoming.
