But Who Will Jürgen Fitschen And Anshu Jain Hang Out With?

Deutsche Bank’s CEOs will still be allowed to show their faces at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, because German businessmen—familiar as they are with protecting their own abroad—don’t see any reason why imperial irredentism should get in the way of making money. But they’re gonna have a hard time finding other bank chiefs to have caviar fights with. Read more »

“I’m not sure I understand it. I mean, it is totally surreal. I mean, who’s the founder, this guy in L.A. What’s going on with Mt. Gox? I mean, there are so many moving parts. Let’s just say I would think and hope that the regulators are paying a lot of attention to it.” [FBN]

Various analysts have predicted good things for the House of Gorman, having pored over the numbers available to them, and taking into account what other banks have said, guidance, macro economic factors and so on and so forth. Fox Business reporter Charlie Gasparino has also come up with a guesstimate, though his was arrived at in a slightly different fashion.

Emma Lasry’s Got Competition

Mr. Gorman sent an e-mail on Wednesday promoting the music career of his daughter, whose band, Madness and the Film, released an EP, four songs on iTunes, over the weekend. “She recorded the music with a British musician over the past six months,” Mr. Gorman wrote in the e-mail. “They co-wrote lyrics, music and play and sing the songs. He is lead vocals and she sings back-up and plays numerous instruments.” In an interview, Mr. Gorman said Caroline, 17, has always had a passion for music and plays piano in her school’s orchestra. When she was 15, Ms. Gorman was playing in bars and had booked studio space in Chelsea. She spent every Friday night for months recording her first CD. “She plays everything,” he said. Last year, while in upstate New York, Ms. Gorman met David Breeze, a British musician, and the two of them joined together to form Madness and the Film. The songs released on iTunes have a melodic, indie pop rock feel to them. [Dealbook, related, related, related]
