Justice can be a long time coming but it is best served cold.

Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of assholes.

QUOTE
Despite the Fed’s efforts, and the efforts of professional economists to sweep concerns under the rug, something is clearly broken. Why else would $120 billion in repetitive overnight repo operations be needed to control interest rates?

Could it be, just maybe, the Fed is secretly bailing out a major U.S. or foreign bank, or some other financial institution? Maybe. Maybe not. But this week the New York Fed stated it would not disclose which banks are receiving repo cash for at least two years. If this was disclosed now, an old fashioned bank run would ensue.

In the meantime, with a little imagination, today’s problems in the repo market could be a warning that CLOs are turning to toxic waste, and, as a result, are developing into the next financial crisis. While it is still unclear, it is very possible that a bank or financial institution did not have sufficient high quality collateral and was frozen out of private repo markets. Hence, the dramatic rate spike followed by Fed supplied liquidity.

The takeaway from all this: Don’t be surprised if a large bank goes belly-up with little advance notice.

Traders being replaced by computers and smarter algorithms???

On a happier note - for someone who hates rodent lawyers - my nephew in London is firing hundreds of these rodents. Partly because they are being replaced by computers.

One of the Australia’s biggest white-collar crime prosecutions involving Australia and New Zealand Banking Group ANZBY and the local units of Citigroup C and Deutsche Bank DB finally showed progress. The news was reported by Reuters.
Lawyers and representatives of the banks met at the Sydney courtroom for a small administrative hearing ahead of legal argument scheduled to be held later this month.

Following this, the magistrate shifted hearings to a larger room as the court would need to make room for 20 barristers, an unusually large number in Australia, even for large cases. Also, the lawyers from both sides are required to submit briefs of evidence to each other a week before scheduled hearings on Sep 25 and Sep 27.

If found guilty, the banks could face penalties of A$10 million or triple the benefit of the conduct. The individuals charged could face 10 years in prison.

Brief on the Case

In August 2015, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank and JPMorgan JPM were the underwriters for the institutional placement of nearly 80.8 million shares of ANZ Bank, which was conducted to raise capital for meeting regulatory requirements.

However, Citigroup and Deutsche Bank, as part of their underwriting commitment, created a cartel arrangement. They, thus, reached an understanding for the disposal of 25.5 million shares that the banks absorbed as part of the placement. These shares represented less than 1% of ANZ Bank’s outstanding shares at that time.

Having investigated the matter for over two years, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) had put forth the allegations in June 2018.

The regulator laid criminal charges against Citigroup’s former Australia head Stephen Roberts, its present local head of capital markets John McLean and the bank’s London-based head of foreign exchange trading Itay Tuchman. Further, Deutsche Bank's former local chief Michael Ormaechea and former local capital markets head Michael Richardson were sued. Also, ANZ Bank’s treasurer Rick Moscati had been charged for cartel offences.

JPMorgan was found to be clean by the ACCC, and thus faced no charges.

The wheels of justice turn slowly, but turn they do.

Lets hope they get the right people. Some real nasties at Citigroup.

And what about the stock market listed Australian banks? What is their principle purpose?

Not to render everyone indebted for a profit is it?
