    “no one really exited anything”

    They fear that if they start unpicking the loss-making parts, their entire operation might unravel. “If you go back in time, no one really exited anything,” says Jamie Forese, the head of Citi’s institutional-clients group. “People worried that if you limited your geographic reach or product spectrum you’d poison the rest of your ambitions.”

    “no one really exited anything”, what does it mean here?

    Your answer will be appreciated.

    You need to look back in the text for where it's implied that someone exited something. You will then understand Mr. Forese's opinion that
    "no one really exited anything." In terms of meaning, I think it means just what it says. But we don't have access to the part where it was suggested that someone did exit something.

    Thank you. If there is no hidden meaning, I think I have just figured it out.
