Thought You'd Seen The Last Of Meredith Whitney?

Think again!

She's done with the hedge fund industry, vowing and keeping that vow to never come back after an unfortunate tussle with her largest investor. But if you thought the Dollar Dominatrix was just going to skulk away, never to be heard from again, you thought wrong.

Running a hedge fund didn’t work out for Meredith Whitney, once one of the most famous banking analysts in the U.S. So she’s starting fresh at a Bermuda-based insurer. Whitney has begun at Arch Capital Group Ltd., where she’s overseeing an equity portfolio that had about $800 million under management at the end of September, Preston Hutchings, the company’s chief investment officer, said in an interview...Whitney will oversee a portfolio with money allocated to about eight managers, including JPMorgan Chase & Co. and BlackRock Inc., Hutchings said. Arch’s investments include U.S. and Asian stocks.

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.
