The Bear Stearns company was founded in 1923 and survived the Stock Market Crash of 1929, becoming a global investment bank with branches around the world. Competent management and risk-taking saw Bear Stearns continue to grow with the global economy. Bear Stearns collapsed during the subprime mortgage crisis in 2008 and the company's assets were ultimately disposed of to JP Morgan Chase for pennies on the dollar.
