Predicting a financial meltdown like the one America saw that year would make anybody famous. Bass used that fame to appear on numerous financial programs and spew his views.

The Necessity of Investment Banking

Business, Investing
Investment banking offers assistance to various clients in raising financial capital by acting as an agent in issuance of securities. By acting as a liaison during mergers and acquisitions, investment banks assist their clients by advocating for their clients’ interest in raising financial capital.
