How JP Morgan Bribed The Chinese Prime Minister's Daughter Using A Fake Name

Tyler Durden's picture


Submitted by Michael Krieger of Liberty Blitzkrieg blog,

Allegations of JP Morgan’s use of clever tactics to bribe Chinese officials recently received mainstream attention when Salon journalist Alex Pareene mentioned it in a comical and classic interview on CNBC (you need to watch the video before reading this) with presstitute Maria Bartiromo. When Mr.Pareene mentioned these claims against the TBTF bank, CNBC mocked him for the fact that his information had come from the New York Times. Well it appears the paper has now given CNBC a taste of its own medicine; with some actual real reporting, something the clownish financial-tv channel drowning in a zero ratings death spiral doesn’t seem all that interested in doing.

This article from the New York Times details how JP Morgan paid $75,000 a month to an obscure consulting firm called Fullmark Consultants, which had only two employees. The firm was run by a woman named Lily Chang, which in reality was the alias used by Wen Jiabao’s only daughter Wen Ruchun. Wen Jiabao was the Prime Minister of China at the time.

Unsurprisingly, many lucrative deals followed for the JP Morgan in China. How about we #AskJPM about that.

More from the NY Times:

To promote its standing in China, JPMorgan Chase turned to a seemingly obscure consulting firm run by a 32-year-old executive named Lily Chang.


Ms. Chang’s firm, which received a $75,000-a-month contract from JPMorgan, appeared to have only two employees. And on the surface, Ms. Chang lacked the influence and public name recognition needed to unlock business for the bank.


But what was known to JPMorgan executives in Hong Kong, and some executives at other major companies, was that “Lily Chang” was not her real name. It was an alias for Wen Ruchun, the only daughter of Wen Jiabao, who at the time was China’s prime minister, with oversight of the economy and its financial institutions.


JPMorgan’s link to Ms. Wen — which came during a time when the bank also invested in companies tied to the Wen family — has not been previously reported. Yet a review by The New York Times of confidential documents, Chinese public records and interviews with people briefed on the contract shows that the relationship pointed to a broader strategy for accumulating influence in China: Put the relatives of the nation’s ruling elite on the payroll.


Now, United States authorities are scrutinizing JPMorgan’s ties to Ms. Wen, whose alias was government approved, as part of a wider bribery investigation into whether the bank swapped contracts and jobs for business deals with state-owned Chinese companies, according to the documents and interviews. The bank, which is cooperating with the inquiries and conducting its own internal review, has not been accused of any wrongdoing.

Of course not, don’t be ridiculous!

For Ms. Wen’s consulting firm, Fullmark Consultants, the JPMorgan deal was lucrative. While many Hong Kong investment bankers were earning as much as $250,000 a year, JPMorgan paid Ms. Wen’s firm $900,000 annually from 2006 to 2008, records show, for a total of $1.8 million.


A spokesman for JPMorgan declined to comment. In a previous regulatory filing, the bank disclosed that authorities were examining “its business relationships with certain related clients in the Asia Pacific region and its engagement of consultants.”


The children of China’s ruling elite, according to experts, have occasionally used government-approved aliases to protect their privacy while studying or traveling abroad. Ms. Wen used her alias for both schooling and business. According to government records, Ms. Wen holds two national identity cards with matching birth dates, one issued in Beijing under the name Wen Ruchun and a second issued in the northeastern city of Dalian, as Chang Lily.


JPMorgan’s contract with Fullmark called for the consultant to “to promote the activities and standing” of the bank in China. According to Fullmark’s letter to JPMorgan, the consulting firm had three main tasks. One, it helped JPMorgan secure the underwriting job on the China Railway deal. It also advised JPMorgan about forming a joint venture with a Chinese securities firm and provided counsel on the “macroeconomics policy in mainland China.”


The letter, sent around the time of the financial crisis, struck an optimistic tone. “We hope JPMorgan Chase will grasp the opportunities and become to be the winner in the financial crisis,” it read.

Well we all know how that turned out…

I'd be interested in learning more about Jim Willie's recent comments on "ancient wealthy Chinese families".

I thought Mao had wiped them all out.

If I find anything interesting, I'll pass it along.

Ok, call me a dumb redneck (go ahead, if you hate my posts you want to) ... but ... isn't the decimal point off a few spots? Seriously? ONE FUCKING MILLION A YEAR?

When I see shit like this, my inner cynics cynic kicks in and wants to know where the other 999 MILLION went ... and that is baseline for the thefts we are talking about.

Not knocking, just saying ... follow the bouncing ball (decicmal) ... it keeps moving ... the wrong fucking way ...



EDIT: DCRB, Jim Willie is crazy as hell, but is is also not a lick of stupid ... so, links if you don't mind. My pint Mason of Maker's and water has a little go go left before bed time ...

Well, I tried the drop-dead-stupid Google search of "ancient, wealthy, Chinese, families", but did not get what I was looking for, at least near the top results.  There was an article from (in 2011) about wealthy Chinese families (then), as well as a lot of how the rich ancient Chinese live, but nothing I saw via a quick scan re what Jim Willie was hinting at.

His latest piece (an audio) is (probably) accessable at his Public Area at his website  It is an interview I heard with Greg somebody who has interviewed JW before.

Jim Willie often gives out obscure info that is hard to verify.

I looked around and found this (I don't subscribe - but because of TFMR have been introduced over time to his logic and opinions):

Is this what you meant, or something else?

JW is off the reservation on some topics (seriously). So, if you are new to JW, don't expect a refined Jim Rickards type experience. But the man is sharp, informed, and worth listening to ...  I am completely happy to listen and sort the wheat from the chaff.

Definitely a perspective that challenges thinking, which is important at this juncture.

That's the piece, I do not subscribe either (but if he'll take BTC, well, maybe then...).  JW does get some facts wrong, Bron Suchecki (sp?, Perth Mint) said that they NEVER got hundreds of dollars over spot (per oz) for kilo gold bars selling to China.

But, I agree, he is my favorite uber-bear.

Since this is tennis ...

JW is a genius, but he is shit house rat crazy at the same time. I think I am too, so I don't mean to be derogatory, just honest. Most folks don't appreciate me at full, personal, up close volume. Good thing I am an introvert, LOL.

Having worked in engineering disciplines for many years, I slowly started to realize that some individuals can figure and solve very complicated problems, yet scorch Mac-and-Cheese in the kitchen. You have to respect strengths and acknowledge weaknesses.

That said, JW is a genius in some ways, but in others he is off the reservation. But I love to hear him rant and to this day I think he really means it and he has logic backing a good 50% or more of what he says. I LOVE to hear his opinions. I won't give a pinch of coon shit to hear what his sources say, that goes back to Jessie Livermore's biography, but his line of thinking is stimulating.

It is like a flashy thunderstorm where the lightening bugs still dance in the rain. Is it he porch? The rocking chair? The lightening? The lightening bugs?

Take it for what it is worth.

Jim's reference is to a so-called 'White Dragon Society' that consists of some very old wealthy Chinese families.  I am thinking a lot of them scarpered off to Taiwan with the KMT, complete with the national gold, so maybe that's where they are coming from.  Benjamin Fulford might be his source.

Yes, Jim is a very bright man, also a bit crazy in that he gets his logic back-to-front, and sometimes gets it *very* wrong.  Recently alleged that GLD ETF had changed its name to NewGold Debentures.  Checked it out, and not true, just a glitch on Yahoo with GLD code in different exchanges.  I suspect someone told him of it and he failed to check his facts properly.  Hope he learned his lesson.

Standard deal, Cooter.  Pay a million in bribes, er, fees, to the rulers to make a billion off the muppets.  Standard operating procedure in a fascist/communist economic system under a political oligarchy.

And don't dare use Jim Willie's name without preceding it with "all knowing."  He's not crazy, but brilliant, and pissed about the destruction of his homeland, once a beacon of liberty and prosperity.  He occasionally bumbles a few details, but has the big picture figgered out - multi-trillion FeRN bond fraud, BRICS gold-based trade settlement, FeRN losing its global reserve currency status, central bank looting, etc.

"White Dragon Society" sounds like Benjamin Fulford, though Dr. Willie does not mention his name.

Contrary to all the horror in the remarks here this is actually how business is done in most of the world. It is absolutely how business is done in authoritarian governments. In China government has been supreme since 1949 and all things were done by government favor. That is the point of power.

When things were done by force and on the up and up on paper the concrete was thinned, the rebar was cut in half and materials were diverted for sale on the black market. Talk to anyone in China and things are often still done this way.

I'd be hypocritical if I busted on JPM for such a tactic, because it is actually one of the best ways to avoid bribing corrupt government officials in the first place.

It may look unseemly, but the only way it would fundamentally be illegal is if the hiring was proposed by Wen as a quid pro quo, or the compensation was orders of magnitude higher than for similar work performed by others without strong government connections.

Of course, offering a US government employee a job the next time he walks through the revolving door is perfectly legal in the US (unless one is a DoD procurement agent).

CNBC reminds me of the Pro-SLAVERY hard-core supporters in the 1840-1860 period where support was waining and the STATUS QUO was waining....


It use to beneift a small group of famers in the south from slavery, but now it benefits a small group of bankers in the north from slavery, er, financial mischief.

rofl.....remember how the Chinese revolutionaries were running around executing and imprisoning anyone who was a capitalist back in the 50's? Now those same revolutionaries grandsons and granddaughters have turned into the worst sort of capitalists in history. You can bet these capitalists will not be executed by the current crop of masters....I mean 'leaders'....
