    I've been reading the book Rogue Trader, about Nick Leeson , the guy that brought down Barings Bank in 1995, by hiding losses of nearly £850m.

    There was a movie of the same name made starring Ewan McGregor.

    It truly is a remarkable story. The book is gut wrenching.


    Question I have here is...

    Ultimately, of course hes to blame.
    But how much of the blame should lie with the bank for letting him trade for over 2 years without checking.

    I mean 1 day he lost £50m.
    The margin payments he was asking for from London were over £10m per day toward the end.

    Any of the young uns ,or anyone who didnt remember it on the board should check the full movie out here.
    It really is a good watch.
