A message to all members of GlobalRisk community

"Our imagination is the only limit to what we can hope to have in the future." 
Charles F. Kettering

Dear GlobalRisk community member,

Last week saw the publication of the European Stress tests. Only 7 of 91 banks failed these European stress tests published by the Committee of the European Banking Supervisors (CEBS). It puts into question the severity of the stress test and Mark Sands posted a discussion to request your opinion on the issue.  Members who took part in the exercise or have their own opinion please go ahead and join in the discussion:  EU Stress Tests- Have they been rigorous enough?
After we issued a press release about our community surpassing 1000th members, we compiled the media packet with Leadership profiles. The document is attached here and also under the Notes section of the website. It is used mainly for media people who are inquiring about our community. 

By the way if you've got a frog for a picture, hurry up and replace it!
