I find the media amazing... they are all blaming the instrument type and not the firm... only way that UBS would have never known that this trader was not offsetting futures against ETF's would have been if they were tracking their P&L and managing their risk on spreadsheets... and if the supervising MD and Sr MD had their head up their assess... and if that is the case, for such a larger investment bank, I would run for the door and take my millions elsewhere... if I was one of their clients...
