You Haven’t Seen The Last Of Vikram Pandit

Perhaps, you thought, that the day Vikram Pandit was abruptly and unceremoniously fired from Citigroup was the end. That we’d lost him for good. That he’d retreat to the his Upper West Side manse and spend his days beefing up his Odd Couple memorabilia collection, or work on that novel about a love that dare not speak its name between a bank CEO and the analyst who only acted like she hated him, or build that Zen garden he’d always wanted that the fucks at Citi never let him have. That he was finished with Wall Street. Well fret not. Uncle Vik wouldn’t never do that to you.

Industry insiders say that Pandit, who was a hedge-fund manager before selling his firm to Citi, is looking at starting a private-equity firm.

And in related news, Bob Diamond is reportedly mulling over the idea of starting a hedge fund which will presumably not be repped by Nell Diamond even though it should be.

    Diamond Pandit. Yep, that's what they should call the bitch.

    Man, it'd sure be great to buy a private equity firm at the top of the market

    And then roll it into Morgan.

    I think Neil Diamond might do a better job at a hedge fund than Nell Diamond.

    Or a JV luxury jewelry chain to rival Jared- Vikram's Diamond Havens.

    After his wildly successful turns running a hedge fund (straight down) and a bank (sideways), why not?

    Seriously though, a metal trashcan lid to the face of anyone stupid enough to give this guy money.

    What a loser. He failed on his last two ventures, don't see why this will be any different. Why doesn't he just enjoy his plundered goods and go to India or something.
