Default Nick Leeson: U. S. Speaking Debut

Former Barings trader Nick Leeson, who caused $1.3 bn of losses from illegal trading, will be making his North American public speaking debut on October 15, 2004 at OffshoreAlert's 3rd Due Diligence & Asset Recovery Symposium in Miami, Florida (http://www.kycnews.com/DDARS/DAY3.asp).

The themes of the event are fraud detection and prevention and recovering the proceeds of crime.

Ah yes, Leeson was the chap who 'bankrupted' Barings Bank. We had just moved to Singapore a few weeks before the news broke.

He fled the country with his wife Lisa (I think to a Malaysian beach resort) and flew to Frankfurt, where police officers were waiting to greet him as he left the plane. He was returned to Singapore for his trial and was imprisoned in the notorious Changi jail. His wife got a job as a flight attendant on Virgin Atlantic then divorced him....and he caught cancer and was released a little earlier from prison. I actually thought of going to visit him at the prison as of course he was so far from home and probably rarely had visitors.....but my husband warned me off....we would have been placed under intense scrutiny by the Singapore authorities.

When I was in England over the Summer I was flicking through the channels and watched the movie about Leeson on the TV..."Rogue Trader" starring Ewan McGregor and Anna Friel (ex-Brookside).

Is Leeson going to speak in New York? Or is he avoiding Wall Street and the financial district?
