Well, think of the economics of large buildings and of insurance companies.
 Large buildings pay off in time, a long time, but are a relatively certain
bets.  Life insurance companies NEED this sort of long-term, guaranteed
income:  the policy you buy today, and pay for today, won't be paid out for
long, long years, Leica users in general, and LUG'ers in particular, being
damned to long life.

So, of course insurance companies own, and finance, a lot of LARGE buildings.
