Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't know why a medium-sized institution whose
main businesses included capital markets (equities and fixed income), investment banking, wealth management, and prime brokerage clearing services.

Retail banking and commercial banking are critical, Bear Stearns engaged in none of them.

It'd be nice if the battle were only against the right wingers, not half of the left on top of that — Franšois in Paris
