Crisis - 1990s

What companies are we talking about when we say companies on the edge?

So that we'll all be on the same plane, I've grouped some of the more well-known companies as follows:

  • APPROACHING THE EDGE: Fidelity Mutual?, Mutual of New York?, and Travelers?
  • AT THE EDGE: First Capital, Monarch Life, and Mutual Benefit.
  • OVER THE EDGE: Executive Life
