The investment banking company was founded in New York City in 1977 with a merger of two financial institutions having combined assets of ~USD 2.6 billion at the time of incorporation. After a decade of being a private bank and establishing a strong foothold in the industry, the company went public with an initial public offering (IPO) and got a high price owing to huge demand from investors. The banking company became a multinational and ranked among the top 5 investment banks in the U.S., in 2005 by revenue. The company invested in financing startups but faced heavy criticism for the lack of ethical standards and high-interest rates. In 2007, the company profited heavily owing to the collapse of the mortgage market. The growth did face many ups and downs, till March 2017, when the company invested in highly speculative securities, without adequate risk assessment. Moreover, to meet the requirements, the bank borrowed large sums of money to invest in them, which led to a considerable financial burden.
The misjudged investments along with the company’s high interest rates didn’t go down well with the looming recession. To add to the company’s woes, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine obstructed the bond and equities markets. On the 13th of September, 2022, the U.S. stock market hit its worst and most volatile day, after June 2020. The banking company was in a deep financial mess. The authorities turned to Research Nester consultants to strategize its supply and demand to facilitate the re-strategizing of policies and processes.

The company started at ~USD 2.6 billion and gradually went on a growth spree for the next 4 decades to reach a valuation of ~USD 676 billion in January 2017. However, owing to miscalculating certain investments, without identifying underlying issues and the ensuing global disruptions, the company landed in huge debts with an increased customer churn. Since the investments performed poorly and faced liquidity issues, the banking company was facing uncertain prospects. The company’s valuation had dropped considerably and it remained at only ~USD 125 billion as of Dec 2020. Finally, the company leadership brought RNPL analysts into its realm to figure out a strong plan of action to stabilize the company’s market standing. With the integration of the measures suggested by the consultants at Research Nester, the company was able to functionalize its assets and formulate its sustainable growth. By the end of 2o22, the company’s finances were back on track, with its overall valuation exceeding ~USD 800 billion.
