The "Fail-Whale" Fallout Begins: Three JPM Execs To Leave Prop-Trading, Pardon, Hedging Bank

Tyler Durden's picture





 

In a development that would make Dostoevsky turn in his grave, we learn that the first three casualites of Fail-Whalegate have been identified.

From the WSJ:

Three high-ranking officers are expected to leave J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. this week, said people familiar with the situation, in the latest fallout from a trading blunder that has cost the bank at least $2 billion.

 

Those leaving are Ina Drew, who since 2005 has run the risk-management unit that is responsible for the losses; Achilles Macris, who is in charge of the London-based desk that placed the trades; and trader Javier Martin-Artajo, a managing director on Mr. Macris’ team, the people said.

 

Ms. Drew has offered to resign multiple times and that request will likely be accepted this week, these people said. She is expected to leave as soon as Monday, the people said.

 

Trader Bruno Michel Iksil, nicknamed the "London Whale" for the big positions he took in credit markets on behalf of the risk-management unit called the chief investment office, is likely to depart as well, but it isn't yet clear when that will happen, said people familiar with the situation. Mr. Macris, Mr. Martin-Artajo and Mr. Iksil have all been stripped of trading responsibilities, added one of these people. All four executives declined comment through the company.

 

Ms. Drew initially tried to downplay the issues when the positions came to light in April, said people familiar with the situation, but once the scope of the losses became apparent she offered to resign, said people familiar with the situation.

Of course, if these three individuals had made money, instead of losing it, they would have received multi-million dollar bonuses and gotten promoted to positions of even greater (ir)responsibility, resulting in even greater potential future losses, and likely taxpayer bailouts.

Thank you Chairsatan put.

And a little more on Ina Drew, again from WSJ:

Meet Ina R. Drew, the Chief Investment Officer at J.P. Morgan whose unit has suddenly found itself in a spotlight most wouldn’t envy.

The 55-year-old executive has been running the CIO since 2005, and been a long-time sidekick of CEO Jamie Dimon. She is currently a member of his closest circle of advisers, the operating committee.

 

She is also among the highest paid executives at the bank, making $15.5 million in 2011 and over $15.9 million in 2010. Both numbers would have put her among the top earning executives, behind only Dimon and Investment Bank head Jes Staley last year, according to a proxy filing.

 

Fortune ranked her No. 8 on last year’s 25-highest paid women list. Across Wall Street, she is among the highest ranking females.  And at J.P. Morgan, she is among the last top females at the bank, along with the head of asset management Mary Erdoes, after former top aide Heidi Miller departed.

 

In J.P. Morgan’s proxy filing this year, the compensation discussion says she “successfully accomplished her business and people agenda objectives for 2011 by creating shareholder value through risk management activities across a broad array of market sectors and currencies with the help of a very knowledgeable leadership team that Ms. Drew has developed over a long career in various locations around the globe.”

 

[Ina Drew] “loves crises” a fitting profile that is worth remembering today:

 

Her eyes light up at the mention of last summer’s European currency free-for-all and she breaks into a grin when talking about the 1987 stock market crash.

 

“Crises make markets volatile, increase the flow of funds and provide us with more information,” she says.

"Three high-ranking officers are expected to leave J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. this week, said people familiar with the situation, in the latest fallout from a trading blunder that has cost the bank at least $2 billion."

The spin on this is plain for all too see. These 3 are not high ranking JPM officers. Especially the third guy who is a Managing Director. Each division of JPM has its own contingent of Mng Dirs. Last year 132 people were promoted to that designation in just the Investment Banking division. The number of Managing Directors at JPM is quite substantial.

They are trying to make it sound like 3 of Jamie Dimon's top lieutenants are falling on their swords for the good of the company. What a joke. These three were quite expendable.

There is no accountability at all for these people.  Being fired and keeping your ill-gotten gains does not count as accountability.  If I had made $10M year over year the last several years and then someone figured out I was really just a fraud who was gambling someone else's money and keeping the profits, I would have a hearty laugh and say "sucker!" on my way out the door.

You are exactly right. The decoupling of risk and reward is key to a lot of the problems on an individual, corporate and government level.

 

Everyone does this nowadays. Borrow to gamble and if you lose, try to deflect losses to someone else.

What about thae lying Aussie fucktard Blythe Masters? Only a few weeks ago she told CNBS in a carefully scripted PR piece that JPM would never, NEVER engage in Prop trading and simply hedged client positions. That nwo turns out to have been not only a maserpiece of bad timing which Dimon must have been involved in. To loose this kind of money on hedging client positions is not possible so the whole matter is now exposed for the lie that it was. Of course, Dimonlike Corzine "Knew nothing" but is now taking "Tough action" to rectify the problem. Jamie, here's some free advice: Fuck Off.

She received a cash bonus of $4.7m, a share award of $7.1m, options worth $1.5 million and a base salary of $750,000, according to regulatory filings by the bank."

So what does everyone suggest the solution is? Whatever the answer is, we are leaving the decision up to politicians who will screw things up even worse.

We already have TBTF rules in place, but The Fed and FDIC won't exercise any authority. Dodd-Frank is a bogus attempt to get around The Fed's and FDIC's failure to enforce rules.

This is such a mess that I can't believe it. But politicians will run blind into the fog again. Just watch.

Ina Drew, is probaly a Lesbian, that has a dog, or a cat at home, on weekend she takes those animals to the park,  she has little or no social life, likes Elton John music, and thinks Obama is the second coming, she likes to go on vacation to Barcelona and still remembers her boyfriend from High School. When she dies, all her bailout money will go to some charity run by jews or pro animals. ..that is all.

Folks, ALL of this is lies, smoke, and mirrors. She and her "team" are agreeing to take this fall to divert attention from the real issue (they are insolvent). All that so called "pay" she collected is likely not collectable and liquid if JPM goes under...

Iksil will most probably be dealt with in the same fashion as the DoucheBank executive who was poisoned with radioactive umbrella in Germany:

Why buy a kraut/swede car when the euro goes to parity with the USD, when you can wait for the euro to tank to 0.45 of USD and then buy a REAL car like a Ferrari, Lancia, Alfa Romeo, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Maserati....

Can the Volcker Rule just ban the entire London Financial District from trading? This has happened like 5 times with these cocaine clowns now.

JP Morgan hasn't done anything wrong except try to trust and manage a bunch of coked up fools.  The London Financial district used to be respected now its a big joke.

 

And this. This has got to be the thing that destroys all this casino trading crap:

The sad truth is that Ina Drew and all the others mentioned as departures would have to work another 100 years for free to recover the losses on these trades. That's just the ones they have recognized so far. I’ve made some bad investments in my life, but, never one where I lose ten times more than I started with.

What I find particularly galling, is that her position affords her professional and social connections in the upper echelons of power, prestige and wealth.  These will be resources she can draw on to maintain her 1% social status.  Had stricter regulations been drafted and enforced regarding JP Morgan's investing/trading/hedging/betting activities, it's possible that her actions may have been prosecuted as criminal violations.  As such, her social standing would be no higher than a convict.

I know these boomer middle aged women "I've got no sex appeal but I've got money and power" types.  I'm working for one right now.

Remember, these are the same women who have castrated us our entire lives with feminism and "we are the world" bullshit.

The term "hedge" has been degraded beyinod all recognition. A clever person can always find a way to rationalize a long or short position as a "hedge."

None of Markit's indices--especially the ABX, the TABX  and the Primex--were designed to facilitate true hedges; they were designed so that a handful of Wall Street insiders could manipulate various Milli Vanilli "markets."
