Comments on: Guy Hands and Citi’s Chinese walls A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 By: Uncle_Billy Wed, 16 Dec 2009 20:02:24 +0000 More generally, Hands is leveling an extremely serious accusation against Citi generally and Bazinet in particular — that Citi’s research arm is happy to do the bidding of its investment bankers, and that Chinese walls at the company are either low or nonexistent. Remember that we’re talking about the former employer of Jack Grubman here: Citi, more than most banks, knows the dangers of using research for ulterior motives.

I will not allow myself to believe that you are as naive as you are painting yourself. You are a freaking financial blogger at Reuters! Chinese walls??? Sure, leave a chair out for Eliahu, but do NOT tell people you actually believe he’s sitting there.
