Lieborgate's Next Casualty: Bob Diamond's Daughter

Tyler Durden's picture


Instead of having to fire 1900 people, Deutsche Bank will now have to only let go 1899. The reason: the second most prominent casualty of the Lieborgate scandal is now none other than Bob Diamond's daughter Nell, who made quite a splash in the aftermath of the Barclays Libor manipulation revelations when the social circuit butterfly tweeted that "George Osborne and Ed Miliband can go ahead and #hmd.” As it turns out after graduation from Princeton University in June 2011, and following a stint in UNICEF, the philanthropist, whose twitter profile is riddled with photos of shoes and runway poses, joined Deutsche Bank in November 2011, whether due to her natural curiosity into the minutae of Investment Banking, or for other reasons. Of course, considering her Princeton thesis was on "The Cultural Myth of Female Hair in the Victorian Imagination" (strinkingly comparable to "The Power Of Women's Hair In The Victorian Imagination" but we digress), it likely was the latter. As it turns out, 9 months after joining the firm full time (she had a part-time stint in the summer of 2010, following comparable stints at the Abernathy Macgregor Group, Nantucket Ice Cream Company, Abercrombie and Fitch), the young woman who sold "Rates" products (Libor and other IR derivatives? Surely that would be ironic at a bank which is now front and center into the Lieborgate investigation) at Deutsche Bank has decided to call it quits, in the process saving the job of at least one low level banker who now will not have to be let go because of the lack of an English thesis focusing on Female hair during Victorian times.

From the Telegraph:

Just a month after her father Bob resigned as chief executive of Barclays, his daughter has followed his lead by stepping down from her job at Deutsche Bank.


The Princeton University graduate quit her job on the bank’s institutional rate sales desk in the last few days. She shot to prominence in the days after Barclays was fined £290m for attempting to fix the Libor inter-bank lending rate.

And this is how her professional career, already quite extensive, looked courtesy of her Finra broker profile:

I would rather hang with the Mafioso at least they were what they were...crooks and they didn't hide it.

Instead we got these dishonest, hypercritical walking f*cking diseases supported by a cartel of governments and central banks.

Hear that? It's the sound of the guillotines sharpening up...

Honestly, if Tyler is this coherent in person, he would have the most brutal smackdowns.  He wouldn't be allowed to many social events, but let me say, I would pay to see her reaction to this.  Someone email or tweet her a link for God's sake.

It's all central banks.

Next protests/riots/revolutions should be aimed 100% at BoE, ECB (of course), The Fed (epicenter).

All three have been responsible for the madness in speculation ala Wall Street and crappy UK/French/German banks.  And hopefully Germany grows balls and realizes that Mario the nut, is sending inflation Germany's way for supporting a useless country/s like Greece and the like...

The elite will destroy themselves when all is said and done, as the survival part of our brains finally wakes up and realizes how absurdly some have existed. Short cake. Long bread.

The survival part of most peoples brains is literally being smothered by fat.

As long as people are not starving nothing changes. 

When one reads about revolution, about the anger that drives action, at its core it is always about hunger. So the kleptocrats have made sure that the bottom 80% have a massive buffer against starvation, and also continue to provide massive amounts of crappy quality calories.

Nothing changes until people (lots of them) start going hungry.

Off topic:

Progress for the Mars rover were halted today when the $10 billion probe was brought online and NASA scientists discovered a parking boot had been clamped to one of the wheels. Outraged officials exclaimed:
"How are we going to be able to prove life exists on mars with the rover immobilized! This is a disaster for science."

Are you for real?

Or are you just being facetious?

Hopefully the latter. If there really is a parking boot on a $10 billion dollar one way probe, I hope someone hangs for it. I've lost track of how many nooses are going to be needed sometime in the future. Purchase stocks in rope manufacturers? What would Maria Fartiromo say? ;-)

We care about this chick why?

People at the Telegraph should tarred and feathered for reprinting her banial tweets.

How can tweets from the Deutsche Bank Employee about the Chancellor of the Exchequer be banal ? Especially when she is the daughter of a Big Swinging Dick at Barclays who squeezed British regulators to allow him to buy Lehman Bros. and was no doubt instrumental in pushing for Barclays to buy ABN-AMRO until Barclays share price tanked and RBS got the Booby Prize.

I think it is essential that we see the Diamond + 1 Generation as it makes its name in global banking. I expect to see a comment in the Deutsche Bank Annual Report and expect Jain and Paul Achleitner to comment

Alas, it won't save a junior banker ... Deutsche will simply use the freed up funds to buy more art for its offices. It's what they do.

This article was a cheap shot and completely unecessary... I do think that those who screw up ought to be publicly criticised, and this girl's father certainly deserves such criticism. But why are you attacking her? Do you have any proof of her doing anything wrong?

I hope you can all see the problem.


I work in finance and I am surrounded by idiots like this broad - men too.


They have convinced themselves that their 'paid for education' is superior and too many clowns take their CV and don't even question the intelligence of these morons.


I was not surprised when the banks collapsed and I won't be surprised when it happens again.


I hope the rest of the world wakes up from this slumber - let me make this absolutely clear for you.


The people at the top are fucking idiots - stop allowing them to run the ship into the ground.

+100, That there IMHO; my fellow plebes outside of their exclusive club, is the point Tyler is trying to make.

Scary news indeed it is to know that the fate of the Global Financial System (or exciting if you recognise it for the same Ponzi scheme as I do) is in the hands of such people (including this particular addition sometime in the future, unless we finally reach the dead end of Can Kickin' Road ).

Victorian imaginations... the classic prerequisite for investment banking, its right up there with a PhD in medieval dancing, or Bob Dylan’s kazoo playing technique circa 1970-1979 . I suppose its worthless becoming angry. Tell an investment bank you have been trading FX for 6 years and they treat you like a HIV infected maniac threatening them with a syringe full of dirty blood, but tell them you have been doing lunch, shopping and sponging off your parents while pretending to be interesting for 4 years, and they hire you on the spot.  In the name of fuck, thank god they don’t allow guns over here, the urge to put one in my mouth would be too great.

Tell an investment bank (or any company for that matter) that 'my daddy is the boss' and they not only hire you, they put you in charge of marketing.

A few decades later, presuming you have no other sentient siblings, you become Prez & CEO, daddy 'retires' to Chairman, and when he finally kicks off you get the chance to destroy what is left of the company*



*which has already lost their best talent, seeing that blood is the only way to the top

Yet another fine example of the formal education system doing what it does best: fleecing leets, and preying on their bright eyed, innocent children, turning them into adult children, postponing their maturation. Would any of you angry beggars have done better? Most of you, probably. If you consider hiding under a rock and living another day to be better than being free to defy the boring fuckwads who are choking our evolution and turning us into debt slaves. But the degree program at the School of Hard Knocks doesn't tolerate failure. Which is why most of the people reading this are angry, jealous losers. You settled for it. Go look in a mirror. That's the best you could do, champ. Ringolevio! 

Good for you, Nell. I was thinking the same thing. Next time, bake them a nice exlax souffle; or something stronger.

Hair in Victorian times???! Holy crap, just holy fucking crap!!! How on earth can one graduate anyone with this thesis, put a stamp of higher education on this? Makes me ashamed to be in academia.

Well hello, Mr. Bush. Thank you for your generous contribution. What, what? Even more? You are a very wise sir. Very wise indeed.

Hey Timmah! Fire up that printing press and make Mr. Bush one of those di-plomas! Be quick about it, boy!
