Jamie and Lloyd weren't invited (not that they'd slum it at something like this anyway), and James Gorman, Robert Wolf, Brian Moynihan and Bob Diamond declined to attend having other plans but Vikram will be there, Mr. President! With bells on!
When President Barack Obama signs the financial overhaul bill into law on Wednesday, many of the most recognizable faces in the banking world won’t be among the hundreds of people in attendance. Bank of America Corp. CEO Brian Moynihan was invited but can’t attend. Same goes for Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman and UBS Americas CEO Robert Wolf, a close friend of Obama. Barclays PLC President Bob Diamond was invited, though it’s unclear if he’ll be there. Citigroup Inc. CEO Vikram Pandit? He’ll be there.
