Rothschild man and HBOS
Sir James Crosby who helped found wealth management J Rothschild Assurance (St James Place plc.) in 1991.
Sir James Crosby is currently deputy chairman of the Financial Services Authority.
He was the 'original architect' of the strategy that led HBOS into near-collapse.
During a session of the Treasury Select Committee of the House of Commons on February 10th, 2009, it was alleged that HBOS had ignored warnings by its former head of Group Regulatory Risk, Paul Moore, relating to risky business practices.
In 2005 Moore was sacked by Crosby.
Moore is quoted as saying that Crosby wrote "The decision (to sack Moore) "was mine and mine alone".
