Picking up the pieces
Four years after Lehman Brothers’ collapse, gains in losing

It seemed impossible that this mighty and revered institution, with more than 150 years of history, could cease to exist. And yet, in the early hours of September 15, we sat in disbelief trying to comprehend that it was “Game Over.” Four years later, we have picked up the pieces.
