British rogue trader allegedly stashed millions in offshore banks in the Caribbean – FBI

Stock-Exchange-740The United States Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) is investigating a British trader who allegedly stashed millions of pound sterling in offshore bank account in some Caribbean islands.

The London Evening Standard reported that Navinder Singh Sarao, 36, who lives in a modest semi-detached house with his parents in Hounslow, West London, and doesn’t even own a car, was able to find £5 million (1£ = US$1.50) in sureties to pay his bail.

The FBI insisted that Sarao hid his alleged ill-gotten gains in a “complex” web of offshore accounts.

In the criminal complaint, United States of America v Navinder Singh Sarao, filed Thursday at the US District Court in the Northern Illinois, FBI Special Agent Gregory Laberta claimed the Briton admitted to amassing “the majority of his (net) worth in no more than 20 days of trading on days when the market was particularly vulnerable”.

According the FBI Special Agent Laberta, the Briton stashed money he earned during the 2010 Wall Street “flash crash” and in his other high frequency trades in Nevis and Anguilla.

“Around the time of the Flash Crash, SARAO took significant steps to protect his assets,” says the criminal complaint.

According to the criminal complaint, one of Sarao’s “wealth management assistants” described the company, in an email dated November 22, 2012, as having been created as part of “tax planning work” undertaken on the trader’s behalf.

Nothing new here. This is how these guys get rich, by avoiding taxes, but the rest of us poor saps known as employees, get out taxes removed before we even open the check! No chance to stash anything there.
