Bailout Creates Opportunities and Cost Containment

The New York Times says that $1 billion in fees are at stake. There may well be multiple managers for multiple asset classes. All in all, there are lots of details that must still be worked out. But clearly there is an opportunity here. Some have already discerned some lobbying going on. Read the New York Times article for the details.

In addition, the meltdown on Wall Street will prompt financial services firms to contain costs - cut more jobs in the US on top of the layoffs they have already announced. And that job cutting will happen even with a taxpayer-backed US$700 billion bailout.
