Chapter 27, Retreat

Translator: 549690339

Franz has been very busy lately, as an economic crisis is looming, and he must liquidate most of his assets. Any enterprise that can be taken public to raise funds needs to be listed and go through the process.

Investments in stocks and bonds need to be completely sold off as well. Without enough money, how can one buy at the bottom?

Franz personally oversaw any matter that involved a significant amount of capital. It's his own money after all, and who could rest assured leaving it entirely in the hands of subordinates without any oversight?

Especially at the critical moment before the outbreak of an economic crisis, any misstep in decision-making could lead to astronomical losses.

It's not just personal assets that need to be dealt with but also those of the Habsburg Family. With so many intertwined industries, Franz sometimes felt overwhelmed by it all.
