New York – AQ Research and the Network for Sustainable Financial Markets are launching a global survey of investment professionals, the goal of which is to ask these professionals for their opinion on fundamental questions such as how financial services should be overhauled in light of the credit crisis. In a discourse increasingly dominated by media noise and political posturing, this survey hopes to shed some light on how professional investors think right now.
William Russell-Smith, Managing Director of AQ Research and also an NSFM participant, said: “At a time when clients are anxious, investment firms have been understandably quiet about the crisis, leaving the debate to politicians, regulators and bankers. But investment professionals, especially those who are closest to the interests of individual savers, have an important perspective which shouldn’t be ignored. This anonymised survey is one way to bring their views into the debate.”
We encourage our readers to participate in this survey, which can be found at: www.aqresearch.com/your_say_on_crisis. It will close on 18 October 2008.
