LCH.Clearnet chief throws off utility mantle
Michelle Price – Financial News
When Ian Axe took the helm of LCH.Clearnet in February 2011, many predicted nothing short of a revolution at Europe’s oldest clearing house. As those who have dealt with the former global head of operations for Barclays Capital and Wealth are quick to remark: “Axe by name, axe by nature.” They have not been disappointed.

Special Report: Iowa broker built empire on a lie concealed in a postal box
By P.J. Huffstutter, Ann Saphir, Tom Polansek and David Sheppard – Reuters
A small-town Iowa boy, raised in hard times by a widowed mother, starts a business in the back room of a barber shop before setting out to the big city. He strikes it rich and returns years later to local glory, spending lavishly and savoring his role as the big man in a little town.
Comment: Long live the market maker
Marcus Hooper – FT.com
Market making is undergoing a curious renaissance as politicians, academics and computer-driven trading firms redefine market structures. This goes against the trend of the last 20 years with the role historically performed by a small group of people relegated with the advent of electronic markets.
Under Investigation, and Doing the Investigation
PETER J. HENNING – NYTimes.com
Whenever there is a report of corporate misconduct, a predictable response is that the company in question says it has hired a reputable law firm to conduct a thorough investigation, and it pledges to cooperate with the authorities to resolve the situation quickly. Prosecutors usually announce their own investigation, if they say anything at all. In reality, the government often uses reports provided by the companies to decide how to resolve the case. Yet this raises significant questions about conflicts of interest.
Goldman’s Not-So-Golden Glow in the Summer of ’98
Roben Farzad – Bloomberg

On the bottom tip of Manhattan, where Goldman’s footprint sprawled across several buildings, I was one of hundreds of newly hired two-year analysts who roamed the concrete canyons with company-issued ThinkPads and insignia satchels.

About-Face for Bankers’ New Lobbyist
ANDREW ROSS SORKIN – NYTimes.com
“I went to Wall Street and told them to get their snout out of the trough because they are some of the worst offenders when it comes to bailouts and carve-outs and special deals.” That was Tim Pawlenty, the former Republican governor of Minnesota, just over a year ago while running for president, railing against big banks. So what’s he up to now?
***JM: Wait, let me get this straight. A politician said whatever sounded good so he’d be popular… and then later did the exact opposite??? Is… is that… can they DO that???
