JPMorgan Agrees to Sell Commodities Unit for $3.5 Billion

The “Owl Coinland…” turned us onto this story today with a couple of his comments.

Bloomberg recapped the sale which is to a group called Mercuria Energy Group Ltd. which was started in 2004 by former Goldman Sachs (GS) Group Inc. traders Marco Dunand and Daniel Jaeggi. The company has grown at an astronomical pace over the past few years – “From 2011 to 2013, Mercuria hired 570 people, including executives from investment banks such as Goldman Sachs and Barclays Plc. That boosted the staff to 1,200 from about 10 in 2004.” – and is now the 4th largest independent commodity trader.

    If I had to state an opinion I would say it is a case of selling ones horse before it dies. JPM might not be everyones favorite bank but I think they can read the writing on the wall.

    Same as it ever was:
    One thing the American government has not done is to prosecute the largest banks in the world for supporting the drug cartels by washing billions of dollars of their blood stained money. As Narco sphere journalist Bill Conroy has observed banks are ”where the money is” in the global drug war.
    HSBC, Western Union, Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase&Co, Citigroup, Wachovia amongst many others have allegedly failed to comply with American anti-money laundering (AML) laws.
