HOT ~ Apa Kerja Goldman Sachs Dalam IMDB..!


Goldman Sachs banker embroiled in massive overseas money scandal

Goldman Sachs’ cozy relationship with the Malaysian government is coming back to haunt the firm and one of its regional chairmen.
The fallout from the widening scandal hitting the white-shoe investment bank involves Tim Leissner, the Singapore-based chairman of Goldman’s Southeast Asia operations, who has left that country and relocated to Los Angeles on a leave of absence from the firm.
A state fund — 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) — was set up with Leissner’s assistance, and Goldman was paid sky-high commissions for bond sales. Then $681 million tied to the fund mysteriously turned up in the bank account of Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak.
The FBI reportedly is investigating all the fund’s transactions in concert with wider probes of money-laundering allegations spanning five countries.
These probes could force Goldman to face the wrath of a congressional inquiry, according to one legal expert.
Leissner, 45, who is married to Kimora Lee Simmons, the former wife of hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, lives a jet-setting lifestyle.
Kimora Lee, a businesswoman, designer and former model, last year opened a fashion boutique on tony Beverly Drive in Los Angeles.
She also has important connections. Kimora Lee is reportedly friendly with Razak’s wife, Rosmah Mansor.
Some of the fund’s transactions illustrate the cozy relationship between Goldman and the government.
The sum of three bond sales for 1MDB back in 2012 and 2013, totaling as much as $6.5 billion, reportedly yielded fees, commissions and expenses for Goldman of almost $593 million, the equivalent of 9.1 percent of the money raised. The typical cut for an investment bank is about 5 percent.
“If it exceeds the limit Malaysia sets for investment managers of a fund, then Goldman will have to deal with some negative kickback from Malaysia,” said Dick Bove, a bank industry analyst at Rafferty Capital Markets.
Not that everyone on Wall Street is acting surprised.
“It is a known fact that there is a lot of fraud, and under-the-table stuff like that happens if you are a bank and want to get business done in foreign countries like Malaysia,” said one veteran regulator. Another person who has considered the Goldman case said with a wink that there may have been multiple “managers” feeding off Goldman’s lucrative Malaysian business — in effect, accepting kickbacks.
At the center of the controversy is Leissner, who left the country just as Malaysian officials began ratcheting up the heat on the Malyasian prime minister.
Government officials want more answers on the source of the $681 million. One claim — that the money was gifted by Saudi Arabia for financing the fight against ISIS terrorism — was greeted with some incredulity.
Many people inside and outside Malaysia are not satisfied with the official explanation.
“People are smelling something here,” Gary Swiman, head of compliance and regulatory consulting services at EisnerAmper, told The Post. “This has been a disaster for Goldman.”
Swiman says Leissner could afford to live like a rock star. “He may have been one of the highest-paid people at Goldman,” Swiman added. “And then they pulled him out of Malaysia. This is just the tip of the iceberg. The question is whether this is going to be a congressional inquiry.”
An email to Leissner at Goldman came back with the message: “I am currently out of the office on personal leave with no access to emails.” Calls to his voice mail were not returned.
Leissner, an 18-year Goldman vet with access to the highest reaches of government in Malaysia, likely made millions from Goldman deals he led that later turned controversial, one person told The Post.
1MDB came under intense criticism in the past for borrowing as much as $11 billion to finance dodgy acquisitions. And more than half was said to have come from bond deals underwritten by Goldman.
Goldman Sachs declined comment.
Rakyat Malaysia kan dah dapat BR1M..!  bersyukur la..!

    1. Bila hang start jadi macai tukang alih tiang gol ni.


      Isu ngko (itu pun kalo jadi isu larr).. rakyat terbanyak tak minat..KAHKAHLAHKAHKAHKAHKAHKAHKAHKAHKAHKAHKAHKAJKAHKAH!!!!!

  2. Macai lembam.
    Soalan lain jawapan lain! lulus spm tu.

  3. Mangkok ayon 10.06,

    Kan dah cakap, kalau ada salah laku Tun, dipersilakan buat siasatan...nak puaskan lagi nafsu, hati dan tembolok pencacai sekalian, tubuhkan RCI.

    Tetapi, berlaku adil lah....

    Najib, punahsihat dan pencacai juga wajib disiasat secara bebas dan saksama.

    Bukan pula,

    Pegawai penyiasat dan penjawat awam diugut, ditukar jabatan, dibesara awalkan, timbalan beliau dipecat dan terbaru mukhriz yang berkhidmat untuk rakyat negeri kedah melakukan tugas begitu cemerlang juga dipecat!

    Adakah najib takut menghadapi kebenaran? bukankah berani kerana benar? contohnya, Najib tidak hadir forum 2 hide, tidak hadir persidangan rasuah sedunia, ikut pintu belakang PWTC dan sebagainya.

    Ada brani?

  4. MB Pahang yg mempunyai masalah isu besar seperti bauksit dan lebuhraya karak banjir yg tak pernah terjadi sebelum ini tak pula dipecat.MB Pahang pandai ampu dan bodek maka selamat lah jawatannya

  5. Ada lg kelebihan mb pahang tu....
    Tunjuk isyarat lucah!
