Lord Rothschild takes £130m bet against the euro

Quote: The member of the banking dynasty has taken the position through RIT Capital Partners, the £1.9bn investment trust of which he is executive chairman.

The fact that the former investment banker, a senior member of the Rothschild family, has taken such a view will be seen as a further negative for the currency.

The latest omen follows news in The Daily Telegraph late last week that the government of Finland is already preparing for the euro’s break-up.

RIT, which Lord Rothschild has led since 1988, had a -7pc net short position in terms of principal currency exposures on the euro at the end of July, up from -3pc at the end of January. Given a net asset value of £1.836bn at the end of July, the position is worth £128m.

Sources close to RIT suggested that the position was not a dogmatic negative view on the euro as a currency, but rather a realistic approach on a currency that remains relatively weak.

Could be a head fake act. I'm sure he could have taken this position without the public knowing, unless this is meant to be seen by the wider banking community.

He doesn't do a bet unless it's a sure thing. They really don't know how to lose money.

Wow.
That shït sure took on a life of its own in the press.
I seem to remember the original Finnish statement worded a lot less drastic. 13.gif

Sir Stiralot betting on chaos..?

Not that I claim to understand these things.
WTF is £1 836 000 000 ? Or is that 1 836 000 000 000 ?

Ordo ab chaos.

And HTF could that ideology end with anything else but
one man owning all other men.

Well, let's make sure he loses that bet! There's got to be some way to shove this shït back in their faces?
