Revue de presse

'Shredded is a magnificent book. I regard it as one of the best investigative books of the past decade' -- Eamonn O'Neill, BBC Radio Scotland

'A gripping account . . . RBS was a rogue business, operating in what had become a rogue industry, with the connivance of government. Read it and weep' -- Martin Wolf, Financial Times

'A model of the journalist's craft, Zola-esque in its broad and unsparing study of corporate hubris and nemesis and haunting in the questions it leaves in its wake' -- Bill Jamieson, Scotsman

'Impeccably researched and hard to put down at any point . . . The author pulls no punches' -- Philip Augar, Financial Times

'Explosive' -- Tom Harper, Independent on Sunday

'Combines Greek tragedy with real-life events that have affected us all. It's hard to put down' -- Devraj Ray, Mortgage Strategy

'I don't think I have ever read such a perfect morality tale for our times' -- Iona Bain, FT Adviser

'The definitive text. I'm thinking of Barbarians at the Gate about Kohlberg Kravis Roberts and RJR Nabisco. An instant classic' -- Max Keiser, The Keiser Report

'You should absolutely read Ian Fraser's Shredded. It is probably the definitive work on the British and Irish banks in the Great Bubble and the ensuing Great Financial Crisis' -- Alexander Harrowell, The Yorkshire Ranter

'Engrossing, fascinating and appalling . . . a fast-paced and sickeningly depressing exposition of what can go wrong when corporate governance fails' -- Ruth Bender, Cranfield University

'A rattling good read. Hubris, nemesis. Truly shocking' -- Paul Rogerson, Law Society Gazette

'A manual for understanding banks, the financial crisis, and also corporate greed and hubris' -- P.C. Dettman

'The definitive account of the RBS fiasco. It's an engaging tale of how self-serving bank executives systematically broke the rules, lent ith astonishing recklessness, abused customers and got suckered by Wall Street - before dumping their mess on the taxpayers' -- Yves Smith, author of Naked Capitalism

'Nearly six years after the bailout, Shredded reminds us how much of banking reform is still a work in progress' -- Nick Dunbar, nickdunbar.net

'Ian Fraser has produced a genuine page turner' -- Alex Marsh, Pieria

'The best financial book I've ever read. Thank you, Ian, for a public service' -- Simon Bain, Herald

'Not just the definitive book on the collapse of RBS but one of the best five books on the great financial collapse which changed the history of the 21st century. Ian pulls no punches in his conclusions' -- Russell Napier, CLSA

'This book should be posted through the letterbox of every taxpayer in Britain' --David Mellor, former Chief Secretary to the Treasury

'Shredded is a monumental book, well written, impeccably researched and hard to put down at any point' --Financial Times

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Royal Bank of Scotland was once one of the most successful and profitable financial institutions in the world; revered, admired and trusted by millions of savers and investors. A trusted employer for tens of thousands of people, with branches on nearly every high street in the land. Now, the very mention of the bank"€™s name causes fury and resentment, and the former CEO, Fred Goodwin, is regarded by many as the one of the principal culprits of the worst financial crash since 1929. Now, for the first time, award-winning financial journalist Ian Fraser reveals how the "€˜light touch, limited touch"€™ approach to financial regulation of New Labour and the aggressive, confrontational, autocratic and reckless style of Fred Goodwin led to disaster, not just for the Royal Bank of Scotland, but for everyone in the UK. And as more toxic secrets are revealed about Libor rate fixing and excessive bonuses, he looks at the future for the bank and examines its chances of ever regaining the public"€™s trust.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A strong read of RBSs downfall - easy to experience the ride 19 août 2014
Par Mr Gavin Palmer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Tells all the golden nuggets and the bringing together of a such a fiasco. Huge researched details (you only have to read the number of references). Its a pity some of the angles politically eg the Scottish Labour partys support and then highly like protection of "their RBS" was not covered so much. IMHO RBS were hand in glove with their political masters next door like Gordon Brown in the next door constituency in Gogarburn plus Darling and Blair allowing a rigged, protective shield. Even included the British Bankers Association for a long time (until they realised that this Scottish bank was ruining Londons banking reputation) , the captive regulators told to keep off by politicos and the 'light touch' excuse. Also Lloyds the AAA rated bank had the regulators sent in whilst RBS further down seemed immune from investigation despite needing it more.
More on the auditing accountants Deloitte KPMG that bent like willow branches to deceive the poor shareholders instead of resisting the manipulation like oaks. Another betrayal of the checks and balances of banking finance that was failed. Also little mention of the Enterprise Act that allowed Labour to do the first prepack that almost stole Railtrack from its shareholders for nothing and thus opened the flood gates to savage the rest of the country small medium and large businesses. The wolf of RBS clothing itself in the soft sheepskin of Natwest assets and reputation. A good bit on RBS blackmailing the UK Govt in order to get their bonuses would of been nice too! Controlling 40% of small business accounts swinging the UK economy and the big swing factor of businesses investing in big projects would of been good too.
However its a very worthwhile read and I liked it well written as journalists do. Thank you

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Inside of a bank it's pure greed 27 décembre 2014
Par Hande Z - Publié sur Amazon.com
Investment banking and investment bankers are the darlings of modern banking industry. Ian Fraser reveals in this enthralling book that there is nothing really to envy - the men at the top of the banking business do not understand investment banking; at least, not the dangers that come with poor risk management. Unfortunately, poor risk management comes with greed and ignorance. So when the bubbles are forming everyone enjoys a super high income and status. But bubbles inevitably burst.

This book focuses on the way the three men who run the Royal Bank of Scotland ('the Bank') as its CEO in succession - Fred Goodwin, Stephen Hester, and Ross McEwan. The bulk of the story concerns Goodwin who was the principal villain; a megalomaniac who spends the Bank's money to satisfy his personal idiosyncrasy. He bullies his subordinates and hides crucial truth from the investors and regulators - that the Bank was not dabbling in subprime mortgages when it was steeped in it.

Goodwin's craving for acquisitions and the men (like Larry Fish) who helped him acquire them for the Bank made no proper due diligence of the banks that they gobbled up for the Bank on both sides of the Atlantic. Essentially, they 'overpaid for rubbish'. The board was kept in the dark in many things that Goodwin did. The result was that there were no internal checks on the way he ran the Bank. Could this really happen to a major bank? The answer is clearly yes. The details in this book sound too horrendous to be true, but in the end, all eyes were opened when the bubble burst.

As a recently retired banker in Australia involved in inter-bank dealings with RBS and other European and American banks before, during and after the crisis I found this book fascinating and hard to put down. It was an eye-opener!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Lack of Management Touch & Growth Obsession 10 novembre 2015
Par Guilherme Neves - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
This is one of the great business epic stories of all time, a regional bank that in 7 years became the biggest bank in the world, this aggressive growth in size not in share price, was built over weak foundations in terms of risk taking and management ( operations like lending to Spanish real estate or cdo expansion in the peak of the crisis) and valuation&quality of the numerous aquisitions namely charter one and ABN AMRO. In the end RBS was a mountain of air, let's say it worthless assets.

All of this was only possible by the lack of valuation risk and social skills of Fred Goodwin, an accountant which hadn't the profile to run an organization like RBS.

The society says the Fred Wage was excessive, I don't think so in theory, he was even underpaid in comparison with other execs of bank and rivals banks, but if it is taken into account the quality of his work the music changes he was an amateur obsessed with growth whatever the price.

Anyone who uses a bank should read this book. It should also be introduced into the public schools.
The corruption and greed is unbelievable
