Dear Clients, Partners and Friends,
I see developments in our industry as a series of waves, similar to what one might find when staring at the ocean from a beach: waves come and go and, almost with certainty, the seventh will dominate in size and force.
Unfortunately, the timing of such ebbs and flows isn’t as precise when it comes to economic and regulatory impacts on our business but there is a certain similarity. While pessimists may claim, as they have over decades past, that now is the time to batten the hatches as the world around us is certain to collapse, these same doomsday experts appear again and again to make their proclamations and seem to disregard that the immanency of their timelines have long come and gone.
So, yes, I am an optimist and, yes, I believe that difficulties, no matter the complexity or challenge, are solvable and that, one way or another, tomorrow will come and bring with it new challenges which will make those of the past seem insignificant.
