WHITE SULTAN’S HEIR

ARTHUR LANDON, 29

Now William has been snapped up, his film-maker friend Arthur Landon could reasonably claim to be the most eligible young man in Britain, so he will be a girl magnet on the dancefloor at the wedding reception at Buckingham Palace. With a fortune estimated at £200million, he is the product of a glamorous union between Austro-Hungarian Princess Katalina Esterhazy de Galantha (she’s invited, too) and the late Brigadier Tim Landon — known as the White Sultan or Landon of Arabia.

A former SAS officer, Tim made his fortune in the Seventies in Boy’s Own fashion when he helped his Sandhurst friend Qaboos bin Said Al Said overthrow his father, the reigning despot of Oman. Paid handsomely by Qaboos, Tim bought the village of Faccombe in Hampshire, plus more than 11,000 acres of grouse moor in Scotland and North Yorkshire. Gregarious Arthur has hosted black-tie shoot dinners for the young royal set, with snooker and vodka shots. Despite his frequent visits to London nightspots such as Whisky Mist, Boujis and Public, Arthur is not a total layabout. He’s made advertisements for the preppy outfitters Jack Wills and is trying to get several other film-making projects off the ground. He can certainly fund them.

THE SPENDTHRIFT SULTAN

QABOOS BIN SAID AL SAID, 70

The Sultan of Oman, Qaboos bin Said Al Said (pictured below), is probably the most ardent royalist in the world. He has been described as a ‘classy despot’ because, though he doesn’t permit any criticism of himself, he adores the Queen, plays the lute, owns the world’s only camel-mounted bagpipe band and presides over a stable Arab country. When the Queen and Prince Philip made a state visit to his kingdom last autumn, he broke protocol to meet them at the airport. Though a relatively popular ruler, he hasn’t been unaffected by the Arab uprisings. After demonstrations last month, he swiftly moved some law-making powers from the royal family to two councils. Look out for the wedding present, because the Sultan is a big spender. For her state visit, he gave the Queen an 1ft-high, 21-carat gold engraved vase and a Faberge-style egg containing a musical carousel of horses. She gave him the Royal Victorian Chain (an award only she can bestow), a silver-framed, signed photo and a book — on clocks.

Don’t bother about the rest. It is right here. http://tinyurl.com/428pmtg

Cash Moves by HSBC in Inquiry

The bank is said to have already set aside $700 million to cover the cost of potential fines. Prosecutors investigating the movement of money by global banks suspect HSBC of laundering money for Mexican drug cartels and moving cash for Saudi Arabian banks with ties to terrorists, according to federal authorities with direct knowledge of the investigations. Senator Carl Levin leads a Senate panel that said HSBC failed to stop illegal behavior at many points from 2001 to 2010. The federal and state prosecutors are also investigating whether HSBC flouted United States law by transferring money through its American subsidiary for sanctioned nations, including Iran, Sudan and North Korea. The weight of the accusations could force HSBC, which has already set aside $700 million to cover the cost of potential fines, to pay at least $1 billion to settle the inquiry, said the authorities with knowledge of the investigation, which would make it the largest such settlement in history. The money-laundering accusations against HSBC so far are more extensive than the potential violation of United States sanctions that is the focus of the investigations against other foreign banks, including Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank of Germany, BNP Paribas and Crédit Agricole of France and the Royal Bank of Scotland, said the law enforcement authorities, who requested anonymity because the investigations are continuing. “This case is not about HSBC complicity in money laundering,” a spokesman for HSBC said in a statement on Friday. “Rather, it’s about lax compliance standards that fell short of regulators’ expectations and our expectations, and we are absolutely committed to remedying what went wrong and learning from it.” The other banks either declined to comment or did not respond to requests for comment. Anxious to resolve the investigation, HSBC reached out to federal prosecutors in July in hopes of securing a settlement by September, according to the law enforcement officials. But a settlement in the next couple of weeks is highly unlikely, the officials said. The Justice Department and the Manhattan district attorney’s office are poring over HSBC records and still need more time to gauge the full extent of the potential wrongdoing, according to the law enforcement officials. The Justice Department and the Manhattan district attorney’s office declined to comment. HSBC was put in the spotlight in July when the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations said the bank “exposed the U.S. financial system to money laundering and terrorist financing risks” between 2001 and 2010. HSBC bank executives testifying at the hearing apologized for the bank’s past conduct and promised reform. On Friday, the bank said in its statement that it had “doubled global expenditure to significantly strengthen compliance as a control function.” Pressure to resolve the investigation increased in the last month after Benjamin M. Lawsky, the superintendent of the New York Department of Financial Services, broke with federal and state prosecutors and moved against Standard Chartered, another British bank. He accused it of scheming for nearly a decade with Iran to hide from regulators 60,000 transactions worth $250 billion. Adding to the desire for a speedy settlement, the authorities said, was rising antibank sentiment after recent scandals, including accusations that banks manipulated a crucial interest rate affecting the cost of trillions of dollars in mortgages and other loans. To assuage prosecutors, HSBC officials have pointed out that they had strengthened controls to prevent money laundering and had replaced employees tainted by the accusations, according to the law enforcement officials. Further distinguishing HSBC from other banks under investigation, law enforcement officials said, was the complicity of senior bank officials. The Senate panel said in its report on HSBC that bank officials ignored warning signs and failed to stop illegal behavior at many points between 2001 and 2010. An HSBC executive reportedly argued that the bank should resume its relationship with Al Rajhi Bank, a Saudi Arabian bank founded by an early supporter of Al Qaeda. Ultimately, HSBC’s American operations furnished the bank with at least $1 billion, according to the Senate report. Federal officials repeatedly warned the bank to closely monitor its bulk-cash business in Mexico amid concerns that drug traffickers could seize on these operations. But HSBC officials from 2000 to 2009 gave Mexico, “a country under siege from drug crime, violence and money laundering,” the bank’s lowest risk rating for money laundering, according to the Senate report. As a result, the bank’s Mexican clients were not subjected to rigorous scrutiny. Even after HSBC’s Mexican branch became the “single largest exporter of U.S. dollars” to its United States operations from 2007 to 2008, money laundering controls did not improve, the Senate investigation found. Between 2007 and 2008, HSBC’s Mexican operations moved at least $7 billion to its United States counterparts — a volume that law enforcement officials cautioned at the time must include “illegal drug proceeds.” The investigations into the other global banks, some of which are in very preliminary stages, largely are delving into what appears to be a widespread practice of transferring money through their American subsidiaries for Iranian banks and corporations. Still in its very early stages, the Deutsche Bank investigation has not turned up evidence that the bank moved money on behalf of Iranian clients through its American operations after 2008, law enforcement officials said. Much of the activity that federal and state prosecutors are looking at involves so-called U-turn transactions, where a foreign bank transfers money through its United States operations to another offshore entity. Until 2008, foreign banks were permitted to perform these transactions for Iran. In their continuing investigations, the prosecutors are examining whether the banks violated United States law by performing transfers for nations under sanction. An inquiry into one bank has already revealed billions of dollars transferred on behalf of Sudan, according two law enforcement officials with direct knowledge of the investigation. The continuing investigations are part of a push by federal and state prosecutors to crack down on global banks that violate United States sanctions. Since 2009, the Justice Department, the Treasury Department and the Manhattan district attorney’s office, working largely in concert, have brought charges against five foreign banks — ABN Amro, Barclays, Credit Suisse, Lloyds and most recently ING.

On Friday, the bank said in its statement that it had “doubled global expenditure to significantly strengthen compliance as a control function.” Pressure to resolve the investigation increased in the last month after Benjamin M. Lawsky, the superintendent of the New York Department of Financial Services, broke with federal and state prosecutors and moved against Standard Chartered, another British bank. He accused it of scheming for nearly a decade with Iran to hide from regulators 60,000 transactions worth $250 billion. Adding to the desire for a speedy settlement, the authorities said, was rising antibank sentiment after recent scandals, including accusations that banks manipulated a crucial interest rate affecting the cost of trillions of dollars in mortgages and other loans. To assuage prosecutors, HSBC officials have pointed out that they had strengthened controls to prevent money laundering and had replaced employees tainted by the accusations, according to the law enforcement officials. Further distinguishing HSBC from other banks under investigation, law enforcement officials said, was the complicity of senior bank officials. The Senate panel said in its report on HSBC that bank officials ignored warning signs and failed to stop illegal behavior at many points between 2001 and 2010. An HSBC executive reportedly argued that the bank should resume its relationship with Al Rajhi Bank, a Saudi Arabian bank founded by an early supporter of Al Qaeda. Ultimately, HSBC’s American operations furnished the bank with at least $1 billion, according to the Senate report. Federal officials repeatedly warned the bank to closely monitor its bulk-cash business in Mexico amid concerns that drug traffickers could seize on these operations. But HSBC officials from 2000 to 2009 gave Mexico, “a country under siege from drug crime, violence and money laundering,” the bank’s lowest risk rating for money laundering, according to the Senate report. As a result, the bank’s Mexican clients were not subjected to rigorous scrutiny. Even after HSBC’s Mexican branch became the “single largest exporter of U.S. dollars” to its United States operations from 2007 to 2008, money laundering controls did not improve, the Senate investigation found. Between 2007 and 2008, HSBC’s Mexican operations moved at least $7 billion to its United States counterparts — a volume that law enforcement officials cautioned at the time must include “illegal drug proceeds.” The investigations into the other global banks, some of which are in very preliminary stages, largely are delving into what appears to be a widespread practice of transferring money through their American subsidiaries for Iranian banks and corporations. Still in its very early stages, the Deutsche Bank investigation has not turned up evidence that the bank moved money on behalf of Iranian clients through its American operations after 2008, law enforcement officials said. Much of the activity that federal and state prosecutors are looking at involves so-called U-turn transactions, where a foreign bank transfers money through its United States operations to another offshore entity. Until 2008, foreign banks were permitted to perform these transactions for Iran. In their continuing investigations, the prosecutors are examining whether the banks violated United States law by performing transfers for nations under sanction. An inquiry into one bank has already revealed billions of dollars transferred on behalf of Sudan, according two law enforcement officials with direct knowledge of the investigation. The continuing investigations are part of a push by federal and state prosecutors to crack down on global banks that violate United States sanctions. Since 2009, the Justice Department, the Treasury Department and the Manhattan district attorney’s office, working largely in concert, have brought charges against five foreign banks — ABN Amro, Barclays, Credit Suisse, Lloyds and most recently ING.

ASPEN — Prince Bandar bin Sultan, chief of Saudi Arabia’s intelligence agency and still an Aspen property owner, is apparently alive and well despite rumors in early August that he had been assassinated in an explosion. A spokesman for the U.S. State Department on Wednesday said recent stories reporting that Bandar, 63, had been killed were not true. David Ottaway, who retired from the Washington Post in 2006 after 30 years of covering Saudi Arabia, also says the stories were false. “If Bandar had died, the government would have announced it,” Ottaway said. “It would not be possible to hide such a death, even in Saudi Arabia. I do not believe he has died, but I have not seen him in public since he took his new job.” Ottaway is the author of the 2008 book “The King’s Messenger: Prince Bandar bin Sultan and America’s Tangled Relationship with Saudi Arabia.” “The Iranians are constantly putting out stories through their agents of some mishap about Bandar that have been all false so far,” Ottaway wrote Thursday in response to an email query. Additionally, David Ignatius, a veteran foreign-affairs columnist with the Washington Post, reported on Aug. 5 that the rumors of Bandar’s death were false. This week, Ignatius confirmed that his source on Bandar was solid. “Yes, before I wrote my piece on Aug. 5, I talked with a source who confirmed, based on personal knowledge, Prince Bandar had been in regular phone contact with foreign officials that week to discuss intelligence matters,” Ignatius wrote in response to an email query. Further evidence of Bandar’s continued existence also came on Aug. 14, when the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement that noted that Bandar was in attendance at the Islamic Solidarity Summit being held in Mecca. And on Aug. 15, the Qatar News Agency reported that Bandar had escorted the emir of Qatar to the airport in Jeddah after the first day of the summit. Bandar, who served as Saudi ambassador to the U.S. from 1983 to 2005, built a lavish estate in Aspen in 1991. In June, he sold his main home and another nearby residence in the Starwood neighborhood to hedge-fund billionaire John Paulson for $49 million. In 2007, Bandar sold another Starwood home for $36 million. But Bandar owned four homes in Starwood, and he still owns a relatively modest 5,200-square-foot home valued at $5.2 million by the Pitkin County assessor. The home is listed as being owned by Bricol NV, an entity controlled by Bandar and managed by attorney William Jordan III, who did not respond to a request for comment. After several years of keeping a low profile, Bandar suddenly made international headlines in the past five weeks and became the subject of wide speculation, perhaps as the result of a deliberate misinformation campaign. The tale starts on July 18, when a suicide bomber was able to detonate an explosion at Syria’s National Security Headquarters in Damascus, killing the Syrian defense minister and the deputy defense minister, who was also President Bashar Assad‘s brother-in-law. The Free Syrian Army claimed responsibility. The next day, July 19, Bandar, already secretary general of the Saudi National Security Council, also was named chief of intelligence by King Abdullah. That prompted speculation by some media outlets that Bandar’s additional intelligence role was a reward for the Syrian bombing. The Saudis have urged military intervention in the Syrian conflict against the Assad regime. On July 22, Iran’s English-language Press TV ran a story headlined “Blast hits Saudi intelligence building, killing deputy spy chief.”

The Press TV story said Bandar’s deputy had been killed. The Iranian story said that Yemen’s al-Fajr Press had quoted eyewitnesses to the bombing, which has not been reported in the Western media. On July 29, the website of the Voltaire Network, a pro-Syrian nonprofit organization, upped the ante and ran a story headlined “Syria reportedly eliminated Bandar bin Sultan in retaliation for Damascus bombing.” “Though not yet announced by the Saudi authorities, the death of Prince Bandar bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al Saud has been confirmed to Voltaire Network by unofficial sources,” the story claimed. The next day, the Voltaire Network appeared to walk the story back a notch. “Strangely, Saudi authorities have not responded to inquiries by the media, refusing to confirm or deny the death of their newly appointed chief of the intelligence services. Clearly, regardless of whether the prince is dead or alive, such muteness denotes a serious disarray within the Saudi royal family,” an article stated. But by then, the rumor of Bandar’s death was off to the races. On July 31, The International Business Times News ran a story with the headline “Prince Bandar bin Sultan: Is the Saudi spy chief dead or alive?” The same day, Iran’s Press TV ran a report titled “Saudi spy chief Prince Bandar assassinated, report says” and cited the Voltaire Network as the source. The managing editor of The Aspen Times noticed the stories and ran a short column on Aug. 1 labeled “commentary” about the rumors of Bandar’s death. The next day, the Times published a second commentary on the “Bandar mystery,” admitting the paper was “utterly clueless on this one.” Iran’s Press TV saw the Times commentaries, and an Iranian television host noted during an interview on Aug. 4 that “We’ve also got the local paper in Aspen, Colo., wondering what is the fate of one of their famous residents, Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia, who owns a condo in Aspen, who hasn’t been seen for the last week or two. There are reports that he succumbed to an attack on his headquarters.” But the same day, some push-back on the rumor came from Saudi Arabia. A piece by Ali Bluwi in Arab News — said to be aligned with the Saudi royal family — denounced the rumors of Bandar’s death Aug. 4 as “Iranian and Syrian propaganda.” The article said the source of the rumors was the man behind the Voltaire Network, Thierry Meyssan. “Usually there is a lot of fabricated news about personalities of Bandar’s caliber, and that has been the case now,” the article stated. The next day, the Voltaire Network acknowledged the Aug. 4 story in Arab News. “Taking note of the information relayed by Arab News on the activities of Prince Bandar, Voltaire Network wishes him a speedy recovery and expressed the hope that no formal commitments will crop up to interfere with his convalescence,” a story on Voltairenet.org said. Also on Aug. 5, Post columnist Ignatius wrote that the rumor of Bandar’s death “was rebutted Friday by a source who said that Bandar had been in telephone contact with non-Saudis.” Then came the official statements from the Saudi and Qatar governments placing Bandar in Mecca and Jeddah in mid-August. Since then, the speculation about Bandar’s death has quieted, but there have been no stories confirming that he is, in fact, alive. Wednesday’s statement from a State Department spokesperson appears to be the first acknowledgment from a U.S. official that the reports earlier this month of Bandar’s death were in fact false.

Aoun says Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey “threaten our existence”

Free Patriotic Movement leader MP Michel Aoun said on Friday that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar “threatened [Lebanon’s] existence” since they were intrinsically linked to the Western political intervention in the Middle East, the National News Agency reported on Friday. “Those [who want to incite strife in Lebanon] count on the United States and Europe as they think that they might help them to win the internal battle. But these countries are only concerned about the welfare of Israel… Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar are linked to this Western policy which means that these countries threaten our existence,” Aoun said during a ceremony to commemorate the first anniversary of the establishment of a fundraising group for the FPM. He added that the threat was emphasized following the establishment of a new political regime in Tunisia after which it “spread to invade Syria, Akkar and then Tripoli.” “Lebanon is in danger,” the FPM leader also warned. Lebanon’s political scene is split between supporters of the embattled regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, led by Hezbollah, and the pro-Western March 14 coalition. Fighting linked to the troubles in Syria broke out late Monday night between pro- and anti-Syrian regime gunmen from Sunni and Alawite groups, whose rival district—Bab al-Tabbaneh and Jabal Mohsen respectively—are divided by a thoroughfare called Syria Street

Peter Sands: survivor of the financial jungle Illustration of Peter Sands. Peter Sands could have followed the path of diplomacy instead of banking after a childhood spent in Asia often the sun has set on the British empire. The chief executive of Standard Chartered was born in 1962 to British parents who ran rubber plantations. A boyhood spent growing up in newly independent countries including Malaysia and Singapore followed by a stint at Oxford’s illustrious Brasenose College almost resulted in a career as a diplomat. But Mr Sands‘s short stay at the UK foreign office after graduating soon took a different turn when he left to pursue work in the private sector. Two decades later, at the head of one of Britain’s most successful banks, the Oxford and Harvard-educated Mr Sands has remained in public life – and until this month, for all the right reasons. He had been among the loudest industry voices to admonish the banking sector as the Libor scandal gripped the City of London and Wall Street. With his thick, dark eyebrows, spectacles and white hair, Mr Sands has something of a professorial demeanour, a far cry from the gung-ho investment bankers found elsewhere in the City of London. Standard Chartered (StanChart) previously had not been linked to the Libor investigations – or any major banking scandal, save for troubles with complex investments that were relatively minor compared with those faced by other banks during the financial crisis. That all changed this month. Allegations that StanChart had allowed US$250 billion (Dh918.25bn) of prohibited transactions with Iran caught the bank by surprise. It was characterised as a “rogue institution”, with an “evident zeal to make hundreds of millions of dollars at almost any cost”, in the words of Benjamin Lawsky, New York’s superintendent of financial services. And after the bank initially mounted a vehement defence against the claims, Mr Sands cut a more contrite figure. “We made mistakes,” he said, in the midst of the crisis. “And we’re sorry. They were made in good faith and we didn’t intend to break the rules.” Settling the investigation by paying $340m in penalties within a few days, the bank’s crisis ended with a capitulation, albeit a grudging one. Nonetheless, Mr Sands may be holding his head higher than his British rivals at HSBC, which ended a similar investigation by the US Senate with an admission of all wrongdoing and full public apology. HSBC, the bank’s long-time rival and which is referred to internally as the “ugly sister”, has significantly retooled its business model over the past two years to be more focused on the same markets in which StanChart makes most of its profits. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery but as a chief executive, Mr Sands requires little. During his time at the bank, StanChart has run 10 consecutive years of increasing annual profits. Mr Sands might have been raised in the British empire’s former colonies. But any associations with the old boys’ clubs of Edwardian Britain are misplaced. Joining StanChart in 2002 as the group finance director, despite his lack of a background in accounting, he was able to rise to the role of chief executive within four years. He also oversaw the hiring of the first two Indian executive directors in the bank’s history. His reputation is also partially due to having had the good fortune to be running an emerging market-focused bank during a period when the West atrophied. But he has reasonable claims to have led Britain’s rehabilitation as a force for progress in a post-imperial age – as StanChart bankrolled almost a decade of development across Africa, Asia and the Middle East and emerging markets became economic powerhouses to rival the West. Indeed, Mr Sands is more likely to be found locked in an intellectual duel with Martin Wolf in the opinion pages of the Financial Times than snapped golfing on the front of tabloid newspapers under a sensational headline about his salary. While western banking titans were being downgraded, StanChart was one of the few whose credit rating improved. That has not stopped allegations of smugness, of course. Nevertheless, it is hard to see the British banking establishment rallying around other heads of British lenders in the same way they backed Mr Sands in the wake of the New York regulator’s actions. The Bank of England governor Sir Mervyn King explicitly criticised the actions by New York regulators for making public statements ahead of the completion of their investigation, while Boris Johnson, the London mayor, decried American “protectionism”. To many in the London establishment, Mr Sands was not just defending his bank but Britain’s competitiveness in trade finance. After all, who were these Americans to tell the rest of the world who to deal with? The robust defence of StanChart is further complicated by the fact that it is something of an oddity in the United Kingdom where it is headquartered but maintains no high street presence. In the UAE, where the bank has operated since the days of the Trucial States, it is far more visible with a retail franchise and the second-biggest investment banking business in the region. Mr Sands cuts a large public profile in the UAE, having attended the groundbreaking in March last year of the bank’s new $140m Dubai head office alongside Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, the chairman of Emirates Group. “This is a strategic investment, demonstrating Standard Chartered’s long-term commitment to our customers, clients and the community in the UAE,” Mr Sands said at the time. The point was clear: StanChart, unlike British lenders nationalised during the financial crisis such as Lloyds Banking Group or Royal Bank of Scotland, was in no hurry to slim down its Middle East operations. To illustrate this, it is one of the few international banks in the region to have quietly hired staff during the past few years. But its “Here for Good” branding always sat uneasily during the years the lender maintained operations in Zimbabwe, even if it did so alongside other international banks. But the worst the bank faced were charges of hypocrisy. Allegations that StanChart played a role as a conduit for Iranian trade may prove harder to shake as further investigations remain pending with the US federal authorities. More unpleasant details could yet surface. But Mr Sands has so far survived the first major crisis of his 10 years in banking with his job intact. Still, the reputational damage may be hard to erase. StanChart’s squeaky-clean image following the financial crisis helped Lord Mervyn Davies, Mr Sands’s predecessor as the chief executive, secure a position as a UK minister for trade and investment. Before the bank’s imbroglio with regulators, Mr Sands had been rumoured as a potential candidate to succeed Sir Mervyn King as the head of the Bank of England. That notion may well now be dead. In past centuries, a British businessmen whose reputations were sullied in the City could always depart to find a new life in the colonies. Mr Sands, whose name has been made from the resurgence of those territorial possessions as dynamic emerging markets, may not have that option. ghunter@thenational.ae
