2009: A New Beginning
Introduction
Two thousand and eight was a rough year for many of us. Market volatility rocked the financial world as global institutions collapsed right before our eyes – Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers and Washington Mutual vanished as Merrill Lynch, AIG, Wachovia and Citigroup either received government cash infusions or were merged with another firm. Although the global financial world will never be the same, we at Blacksand Group believe that there are always opportunities available, even during dark times. Two thousand and nine can prove to be a year where opportunity favors the prepared mind; and at Blacksand Group, we strongly believe we are ready to tackle the tough economic conditions ahead and put our clients at the most favorable of circumstances. In this featured perspective, we will discuss a few significant points of our 2009 forecast in the summary below.
