    Pros

    Had a great fixed income team with good brokers and traders in a wide range of products. The investment bankers worked closely with the trading desks had a better handle of the market.

    Cons

    We didn't have enough time to get traction to turn the company around. The investment banking/structuring group working within the fixed income desks had opportunities to close a few deals but more time would have been beneficial to all.
