10 years after the fall of Lehman Brothers, GlobalCapital looks at what has changed, what has stayed the same, and what had nothing at all to do with the collapse of Lehman. We've also asked market participants to share some of their thoughts and reminiscences about the most fateful day for the financial industry.

Below, you can find some of the coverage at the time, from our predecessor publications including EuroWeek, Asiamoney and Securitization Intelligence. We got plenty wrong in the days beforehand, and indeed afterwards, but it serves as a reminder of how the market felt for those feverish days.

    Imagining capital markets and investment banking in 2018 without the global financial crisis is a big leap. The chaos and turmoil of 2008 deeply scarred traders, bankers and regulators and defined the intellectual imperatives for the changes that followed — the wholesale revamp of prudential and markets regulation, the bailouts, the reorganisations, the new monetary tools and new ways of seeing the world. But the past 10 years haven’t all been about the crisis.
