The Man Who Broke Barings Bank

Nick Leeson SpeakerIn 1995, Nick Leeson’s unchecked risk-taking caused the sensational collapse of Barings Bank. He was sentenced to a six-and-a-half-year jail sentence in a Singaporean jail, in conditions that defy belief. While in prison his wife left him and he was diagnosed with colon cancer. Against all the odds, he survived and recovered from the cancer that almost killed him, determined to begin a new life.

“My experiences may be unusual, but they offer real insight into how stress can get out of hand and affect all of us.”


In detail

Few stories have dominated the world’s headlines quite like the collapse of Barings. Trusted with the finances of royalty and aristocracy for over two hundred years, Barings had apparently been brought down by the covert trading activities of just one man, leaving the bank with losses of around £860 million. The fate of that man, Nick Leeson forever dubbed the “Rogue Trader” is now well known.
