  • To say that Citibank has had more than its share of problems would be an understatement. In May, for instance, the bank agreed on a 2.65 billion settlement with investors who bought stock and bonds in WorldCom before it filed for bankruptcy. Later that month, the Federal Reserve fined the bank 70 million for abuses in personal and mortgage loans to low-income and high-risk borrowers. In June, Citigroup suspended two executives in China, citing them for presenting false financial information to Chinese regulators and to the bank itself. In August, British regulators began an investigation of a 13.5 billion bond trade that was executed by Citigroup. Then, in September, Japan ordered Citigroup to close its private banking unit there for, among other things, failing to guard against money laundering. That was apparently the last straw for CEO Charles Prince. After a very public apology to the Japanese people, Prince set about on a daunting task -- changing the corporate culture of the financial giant. Is it possible Yes, ... But it's not probable. There's very little meaningful change that can go on in an organization because of past investments, taken-for-granted assumptions, vested interests in the status quo, inertia and other deeply rooted factors.

  • Goods and possessions are no gain in his eyes. He stays far from wealth and honor. Long life is no ground for joy, nor early death for sorrow. Success is not for him to be pround of, failure is no shame. Had he all the world's power he would not hold it as his own. If he conquered everything he would not take it to himself. His glory is in knowing that all things come together in One and life and death are equal.

  • The prudential management approach to risk is where the world is going. Collateral is just simply on the way out as a chief rule, and a chief tool, of regulation. My view is that collateral is just a device to raise costs, and to turn a blind eye to the potential risks of reinsurance failure.
