9780751517088: Rogue Trader

Pressure, pace, error: ROGUE TRADER grippingly tells the inside story of how the greatest gamble ever made rocked the City of London to its foundations. Crackling with tension, in a narrative as crisp as any thriller, Nick Leeson's autobiographical account reveals how he 'lost' GBP800 millions as General Manager of Baring Futures Singapore through foolhardy speculations on behalf of his employer, Barings Brothers - the world's first merchant bank. As Leeson's audacity escalated, so did his losses while London continued to pour money down the drain. ROGUE TRADER is a dazzlingly revealing story of a man shaped by events that proved beyond his control.

Review:

Susan Harrison, AMAZON.CO.UK REVIEW Simultaneously entertaining and appalling - FINANCIAL TIMES * 'When Nick Leeson was arrested in 1995 for bringing Barings Bank to its proverbial knees, it initially seemed as if he had single handedly crushed this most well-established and well-respected financial institution, and indeed it was he alone who found hi * Hair-raising...as revealing a document about contemporary Britain as all 2,000 pages of the Scott Report - OBSERVER * The story of Leeson and his bride has it all: filthy lucre, brazen abuse of power, and boy-meets-girl romance - SUNDAY TIMES *
