Pressure, pace, error: ROGUE TRADER grippingly tells the inside story of how the greatest gamble ever made rocked the City of London to its foundations. Crackling with tension, in a narrative as crisp as any thriller, Nick Leeson's autobiographical account reveals how he 'lost' £800 millions as General Manager of Baring Futures Singapore through foolhardy speculations on behalf of his employer, Barings Brothers - the world's first merchant bank. As Leeson's audacity escalated, so did his losses while London continued to pour money down the drain. ROGUE TRADER is a dazzlingly revealing story of a man shaped by events that proved beyond his control.

Penguin Specials are designed to fill a gap. Written to be read over a long commute or a short journey, they are original and exclusively in digital form. This is John Gapper's foray into the world of rogue traders. Unlike most bankers, they are household names: Nick Leeson of Barings, Jerome Kerviel of Societe Generale, John Rusnak of Allied Irish Bank. And now the 31 year-old Kweku Adoboli, who allegedly ran up $2.3bn in losses at UBS. These are the men who have bought banks to their knees and global financial systems to a halt. Each time the banks declare themselves to be innocent victims of a fraud. But why do traders keep on committing apparently senseless crimes, with little benefit apart from higher bonuses and a risk of ending up in prison? And why do banks, which should have learned the tricks of the traders, keep being deceived? In this Penguin Special, the Financial Times' associate editor John Gapper unlocks the mystery by delving into the evolutionary risk-taking instincts of both humans and animals - from yellow-eyed junco sparrows in Arizona to honey-bees. He reveals how banks encourage their traders to evade risk limits, and shows how the rogue traders merely mimic the strategies used by their firms to seem more profitable than they really are. A rogue trader is often an outsider who starts in a lowly role and gambles with a bank's money in a bid to become a star. Gapper traces patterns of behaviour and personality that could be used to catch them before disaster strikes. But do the banks really want to? And are the rogue traders just the symptoms of a financial system gone rogue?

Dave Mackenzie, the man, the legend-superstar pilot, supplier of weapons, lover of women, connoisseur of fine ales and transporter of toilet rolls. Following a less than electrifying Naval career and after being required to resign from the latest in a string of jobs, Dave awoke on his thirtieth birthday on a distant tropical beach, suffering from a hangover with a strange black substance soaking into the crotch of his shorts. Things would have to change, starting with the shorts. The unforeseen "re-direction" in his career threw Dave headfirst into the roller coasting, cut-throat, money driven world of the freelancer, where the next five years saw him transport everything from sex toys to sniper rifles through solar flares, thunderstorms, searing heat and blinding cold to every destination under the stars.

The true untold story of a rogue trader, whose decision to right a wrong ignited a series of political maneuvering by American and Japanese officials, leading to the expulsion of a major Japanese bank from the U.S. Toshihide Iguchi, formerly an Executive VP and U.S. Government Bond trader at Daiwa Bank's New York Branch, was responsible for $1.1 billion in unauthorized trading losses accumulated over a period of 12 years beginning in 1983. At 18, Toshihide Iguchi came to the U.S. with high hopes. Graduating from college in Missouri, marrying a St. Louis girl, and landing a promising job at Daiwa Bank in New York, he was ready to embark on his American dream. Unbeknownst to him, a storm of unprecedented financial deregulation on both sides of the Pacific was about to rage... Twelve years later, he found himself in the maximum security ward of a Manhattan jail, surrounded by Arab terrorists and a Mafia boss. The author looks back on his psychological struggles and redemption, which gave him valuable insight in helping others to prevent future billion dollar trading losses, tying in more recent rogue trading cases, discussing common misconceptions of rogue trading as well as operational risks that continue to exist in financial institutions today.
