Sajid Javid is now the Health Secretary. As this press release shows, his prior experience was in trading the financial instruments that crashed the world economy in 2008.
And he was not a minor player. He was a major player at a major bank, worthy of having press releases issued about his career progression. In 2008 he helped bring down the world economy: no one else but bankers did that. Deutsche in London was right in the middle of that.
Javid was also running the Far East business out of Singapore.
How badly was Singapore hit? How badly was Deutsche Singapore hit?
Given that Singapore actually managed a rise in GDP that year – marginal but still there – perhaps not very much. Which might be useful evidence as to whether Javid is good in a crisis or not, eh?
