A single banker, fairly low in the hierachy, caused the Société Générale a damage of 5 billion Euros. (If you earn 100k Euros per year and if you work for 50 yers, you’ll have earned 5 million, a mere 0.1% of this sum.) For some reason a Tagesschau article dealing with this event uses only the “anonymized” name Jerome K. in their article. But the third link below is entitled “Was Kerviel a single perpetrator?“.

So much for the anonymity of Jerome Kerviel, who now even has a Wikipedia page  🙂
