FDIC FOIA Discloses Pandit Future Could Promptly Converge With That Of Ken Lewis





It was immensely refreshing to find an actual probing piece of investigative journalism coming out of Reuters, instead of the traditional regurgitated, opinion-based, fluff-filled, secondary source monologues (we prefer the British spelling) we have become accustomed to seeing out of the Thomson Reuters behemoth.

Exclusive: Zero Hedge Receives FOIA Response On Perella-Weinberg Compensation





After several months, the FDIC has been kind enough to provide Zero Hedge readers with the information requested on Perella Weinberg's compensation (good to know bank liquidation pays a nice $4.6 million a year), and the balance on the DIF (which is somewhat stale as the FDIC recently reported that information in its quarterly update and Zero Hedge discussed the topic). Under the umbrella of the Freedom Of Information Act, I present the information as received from the FDIC unadulterated.
