FleeceBook: Meet Benoit Gilson, Head of Foreign Exchange & Gold At The BIS

Tyler Durden's picture


We are happy to announce that starting today, and going forward every week, as part of a new feature dubbed, appropriately enough, FleeceBook, we will introduce our readers to one, previously largely unknown member of the ruling banker aristocracy: an individual who is as far from the glamor of the daily media headlines as possible: just the way they like it, and just the way the co-opted media will agree to have it. We hope that by the end of the series, these individuals - all of them perfectly law abiding citizens of their various jurisdictions, at least under conventional legal terms - will form a tapestry of what really happens behind the scenes, especially in a context such as that presented yesterday, where we found that no matter how guilty beyond a reasonable doubt a member of the political-financial elite is, hell would have to freeze before any legal action is taken (for reference, please see the very underrated movie The International). For our inaugural edition on FleeceBook, which will compile various public profiles already posted elsewhere, we present Benoît Gilson, Head of Foreign Exchange & Gold, which he describes as "a really special place to work because it is a link between the markets and the central banks." In other words if confused why gold is imploding on any/every given day, and/or why the EUR is soaring on news of a failed ECB sterilization, now you know who to thank.

From the BIS (highlights ours)

Profile: Benoît Gilson
Position: Head of Foreign Exchange & Gold

The BIS is a really special place to work because it is a link between the markets and the central banks. This means that I can work in the markets, as I was doing before, while taking a central bank perspective. I find it very interesting to talk to the central bankers who call us for advice, information and market liquidity summary, and I love having a foot in both camps.

As we act as market-makers for BIS products in currencies and gold, we maintain relationships with all market counterparties to ensure sufficient liquidity for our customers and appropriate hedging instruments. We are focused on central banks and international institutions, helping them implement foreign exchange interventions, build their reserves, diversify their portfolios or modify their reserve currency allocation. We can also help them to manage their gold reserves. Of course, many of the issues we deal with are highly confidential, so discretion is very important.

Working here has many advantages in terms of lifestyle. While you don't earn the kind of huge bonuses you could in London, you get exposure to some of the most interesting people in the industry. The selection process here is pretty tough, so you automatically have good people around you and can get involved in some challenging debates.

I have to say that I really enjoy Basel too. I was working in Luxembourg before, which was another wonderful small city. In Basel, I can go home and be running alongside the Rhine and watching the sun set in 10 minutes. And, of course, you often encounter your colleagues out and about, which fosters a very friendly working environment. The senior managers here go out of their way to be accessible, so if you see them in the supermarket you can be sure that they'll have a chat with you.

Maybe for the next installment, ZeroHedge can do an expose on all the silver pumpers who cluelessly encouraged investors to buy "with both hands" when silver was near $50 and supposedly heading toward $500. A quick perusal through many of the popular precious metals blogs and it appears that all the hype and hyperbole created hundreds of bagholders for no good reason.  

Not trying to be a jackass, but sometimes I think the doomer community needs a look in the mirror.

Your anger toward people choosing an alternative currency to hold shows how the manipulation antics by CB's aren't working as good as they should.  Are you mad at people that finance a new car instead of buying a used one too?  They incur higher depreciation.... more of a "bag"....

Anyone holding US treasuries doesn't need to "try to be a jackass", they already are.  LOL.  Those are the real bag holders.

I don't recall anybody encouraging people to buy silver with both hands when it was upwards of $50. Even if some had, when all is said and done $50 will be very cheap. It's not a doomer play. It's about having freedom from the vipers, an exit strategy from the global ponzi charade. A small price to pay at any cost.

You are not doing yourself any favors 'choosing an alternative currency'. Relax. Keep your metal as a store of value and use the fiat until it doesn't work any more. You are swimming upstream trying to get 'the people' to want a 'harder currency'....they never have and they never will. They love fiat that slowly depreciates (emphasis on slowly, too fast and they will panic) and allows them to pay off their mortages and other debts with currency of lesser value. We have been doing this for about 300 years, maybe more. Future systems will not doubt include a fiat but if ewe are lucky they will keep the metals out of the equation and let themarket determine their value.

That's fair enough, although you may look into how much silver a single dollar could buy you over, say, the past 20 years.


And it's worth wondering if gold and silver prices aren't being more or less artificially manipulated down - for various reasons I think they are, but thinking it isn't the same as being able to prove it.

Of course now it's down to only 125 ml.

That is precisely what they did.  Home invaders in the NY area now have a GIS app that allows them to see if potential candidates have guns or not.  This is a boon to the NY home invasion industry, and for that my criminal friends in NY thank them.  Well played sirs.

Yes, as in the spiritual axiom that if something's bothering me, there's a problem with me, not the other....

Why would the folks from the paper care, right?

Most guns owned in this country are not registered.
I'm a talkin' about shotguns, rifles....
And many jurisdictions have no requirement to even register handguns.
And many places, if you own the stuff you aren't required to register the guns or yourself if just held in the home and transported in a certain manner.

May be a bit of a surprise for some folks, but ah, that stuff in the paper was for carry, primarily....

Like, let's look at some figures out in the public domain.
Let's use guns and the NFL.  Such a standard of comparison.

Somebody once wrote about NFL players, that 70% are convicted felons.
Another article once noted that about 70% of NFL players own guns.
Now, by my math, that means that approximately 50% of the NFL felons own guns and by some sneaking feeling I got, means there ain't been no registration of any kind.

Now, why would I think that be abnormal?

Just thinkin' to myself out loud.

"And that's why I post everything on Facelook.  Or whatever it's called.  Why, I even come home from the supermarket and find my boss in bed with my mistress, my wife, the midget, underage children and animals.  It is such a convivial place.  Why we've even taken to counting gold bars impressed with Nazi symbols in those secret vaults during cocktails and hors d'oeuvre before the initiation ceremonies.  Why the secret police/border patrol even facilitate the international movement of contraband for governmental agencies world wide, so the international exposure and stimulation is marvelous.  And the S&M sex clubs in Basel are absolutely first class."

His education may be lacking.

Maybe he can explain his lack of bonus and running regimine to the artisan miners in the DRC or the children missing limbs from the bombs he financed.

People like this have been ruining lives, killing people and bankrupting nations for centuries and nothing ever happens to them.

How is that possible?  Is it because heretofore they were totally anonymous?

Is it different this time because of the internet and the ability to research and gather information about them?

Maybe, just maybe, they wont get off scot free this time around.  Maybe, just maybe, justice will be served because we now know who they are and what they do (something our ancestors never knew).

Their bloodlines are probably responsible for the misery and premature death of some of your ancestors.  Maybe, just maybe, someone will decide to even the score.

Im not advocating violence here.  Im merely stating an opinion based on my understanding of human nature and history.

Its all genetics and competetion.  For centuries they have won the game because they had an unfair advantage (anonymity).  That has changed.  The playing field is less uneven.  We will see how well they compete now.

Hey knukles - in case you didn't notice it was the idiot himself who put this info out there. Probably in a news interview. All it takes is some basic research to find anyone, anywhere. I could give you a personal example but - well - I do respect the privacy of my fellow ZHers. However, the easier that ZH and any other similar website can make it to find these people so that those who are so inclined can let them know up close and personal how they feel about their slimeball lives, the better. And not everyone who thinks this way is a crazy, or on meds. Some might even say they would be the most sane among us. It would be interesting to see how many google maps of Basel have been pulled up in the past hour or so.

There's about 6,000 of these crimminally sick fucks ruining the lives of 6 billion others. I say arrest them, convict them and throw them into jails. If anything happens that you don't have what you need these are the ones to look up. Things will get turned around in a hurry.

We should be thanking that BIS has been holding the paper Gold price in a tight band for past 10 years, which gave us all an affordable entry to physical Gold.

I really thank BIS for standing for us small folks. I think it is high time BIS/EURO is going to turn it's guns full blazing against US Dollar/IMF.

Last time during late 1970's, they did not have an alternative in EURO, now they are really confident that they can take on the US Dollar.


Thank you BIS

I can go down to Malibu in 10 minutes and jog to Venice anytime fucker and I don't have to ruin billions of people's lives to do it. Don't come to Santa Monica or I'm going to interview you on film. Maybe, back in the day I would have, today I ususally stay away from people that have names that sound like fruit pudding.

A foot in both the markets and the BIS ...

Consult w Central Bankers to share trading and tradeable data...

Having frontknowledge, er, foreknowledge of CB intentions...

Being an insider is really special, w really special privileges. Really wheee!...

My family thanks ZeroHedgies and other mere commoners for ill-conceived trust.

 What's not to like?

don't quote me... but i think i read somewhere's in their by-laws that they're exempt from international law [the big wigs that tyler is profiling] which supercede's all laws!

in other words, they can commit malfeasance/fiduciary crimes, and never be held accountable.


thankyou tyler

And all this does is pour tax payer funds/funding to those friends closet to the spigot at the expense of those furthest away (why you have the 1% versus the 99%).  All this done in the name of economic growth (which none but inflation really arrives).  It's nothing more than stealing by the State of the individual's labor.  The most corrupt, brutal yet efficient mechanism of theft the world has ever known.  All by an unaccountable State Apparatchik that Stalin would envy.

Wait until big meeting at the BIS, when everyone is present. Helicopter drops a nuke on the building. Let's start a fund up and begin taking donations to purchase the nuke and lease a helicopter.

He looks like a member of SPECTRE, right out of an old James Bond film.

And a little bit like Maxwell Smart too.

What a complete gaytard. 

Nauseating bio, and the expression on his face is, "I have a giant stick up my ass."

The expression on his ass is, "And I like it."

I can't wait to see the complete lineup of these barnacles.
