Says the guy who thinks that companies last for centuries.
I could point out, yet again, how multiple posters here have already shown you some that have. Or that a little research of your own would show you that there are many more than just the ones already specifically cited. Or that where you really
go wrong is in your apparent belief that a seasoned financier would entrust the safety of his holdings to any
one institution, or that when a financial institution goes "out of business," its assets simply disappear. But since we've been cautioned not to piss anyone off, I'll just let it drop.
