In her view, the bank is unlikey to be profitable for several years. Its strategy was that its many financial services businesses could boost their revenue by selling products to one another's clients. "But that does not seem to be happening because the

In a more colourful quote, she adds that "it would take Stephen Hawking four years to right that ship."
