about
The practical flaw in this argument has always been a simple one of putting too many eggs in one basket. If
any investor, private or corporate, has too great an exposure to any single asset class then it simply is not
safe. A cautious approach to risk should dictate that every investor has exposure to a series of asset classes
and that, ideally, at least some of these asset classes should be uncorrelated. In this way, if one asset class
takes a metaphorical beating then the other assets in the uncorrelated portfolio should be immune.

Of course, all financial and insurance institutions have not been entirely immune to the effects of the market turmoil,
Nor have they emerged unscathed. The interconnectedness of the international financial system has ensured that the ripple effects of the crisis have been felt throughout the global financial community, non-conventional financial institutions have also been affected by the general crisis of confidence amongst investors. Most importantly, however, is that the crisis has highlighted a fundamental weakness of the asset management industry within the American region: the lack of a truly diversified investment banking product and service offering.

Laying off current staf.. bringing in new ones!!

about
Bureaucracy can sometimes be stifling. As with any large organisation experiences can really vary depending on what division and team you work in. Sometimes it is a little bit superficial. Make sure you are going into the industry for the right reasons because it is difficult on you. Plus many people in the data area tends to stay in the same post for a long time, therefore making it difficult to advance to more senior position. They would rather bring in outside talent even when it is clear that someone internally is more qualified. THis has to do more with internal politics as well as the senior people don't want to lose their best worker.

Collapse of an Icon

about
It has settled in now. As I chose my relationship with my company -- I chose ex-employee versus employee!
What a ride we had. A group of my Friends joined Lehman right after we graduated from Harvard. I and many of my friends like it so much and were doing so well, we did not even go back to business school. Who could have imagined it would come to this. But whether we like to hear it to not -- it is clear to us employees that we were singled out. But the markets are still crazy, let's see if Morgan Stanley survives,
