Background: More than a decade ago, the UN published a World Economic Outlook which predicted a downturn in economic growth and prosperity. Despite this and all the warning signals, the world was plunged into a global financial meltdown the impact of which is likely to be felt for the next decade. Consequently, people have been led to believe that 1) risk is bad and should be avoided 2) risk managers and risk management failed. In fact, taking risks remains essential to the success of organisations the world over. Investors, especially banks failed to correctly apply risk management principles and made fundamental mistakes:
  • Investors including banks, were risk-aggressive and made decisions on rewards available, without an accurate quantification of the level of risk involved.
  • The banks assumed that:
    • re-packaged debts, including sub-prime mortgages, would continue to be tradable commodities. Instead overstated asset values plunged downwards while repayment defaults shot upwards.
    • Short term borrowing on the wholesale money markets would continue to be available to fund long-term lending at a more profitable rate. The wholesale money markets collapsed.

Taking these developments into consideration, the liberalization of developing economies, the volatility of financial investment centres and the impact of emerging markets on the ongoing evolution of global trade has provided an opportunity to OnQ Solutions to expand its horizons beyond the normal services offered by a professional financial consultancy organisation. Our moderate risk appetite, high capacity and limited exposure allows us to offer the best consultancy services.
