Watch Out! - Barclays must be getting desperate! - I received a message via www.linkedin.com this morning! - Arvind Punia (Stealth Manager in Dubai)


They obviously need a 'Whip-Round' for Bob Diamond's Departure Package!

Nice to see Bob give up his $30 million bonus.

The £100 million he's allegedly earned in his time there luckily means he won't be going homeless.

Personally I'd like to see him spend a few years of his retirement at HMP.

You get paid them sort of sums and you have to take responsibility. I doubt it will happen though.

Barclays isnt the only one implicated in this affair

RBS is withholding docs which may prove similar

Your also have DB, Citi and 2 or 3 other banks as well

I confess to a bit of previous on this one - I was involved in LIBOR setting (indirectly) in the late 1980s........... there was no way a single bank could influence the rate, and judging by the complicated 'panel of banks' arrangement in place today, it would still not be possible now:

http://www.bbalibor.com/news-releases/bba-libor-panels7

As Meow says, there are many more than just Barclays involved in this.

BTW - one of the allegations is that some rates were set at an artificially LOW level....... this is far more complicated than we have been led to believe.

Will be interesting to see what the outcome will be - my feeling is no more fines but the libor calculations will become more transparent and more "market based" prices

Will be interesting to read the final Review to see if any compensation is due to people who took out Libor based products - i wont be punting on it though !
