Russian chimpanzee outperforms 94% of Russian bankers in investment choices

Lusha the chimpanzee outperforms 94% of Russian bankers

We know where to turn to once all our bankers have fled abroad for tax purposes. I propose Twycross Zoo as the new world banking hub

  • It means that the chimp probably outpoerformed 99% of UK banksters too!

    I like this comment under the article:

    “There you go,

    A replacement for the Prime monster Gordon Brown.. panic over.

    And the chimp has better dress sense ?
    – Ex Pat Eastern Europe, Braitislava The ”

    Prime Monster – that one has gotta stick!

  • [email protected]…..A replacement for the Prime monster Gordon Brown.. panic over.

    Many artisans would welcome a more broad-based importation of Eastern European ‘competition’

    Let me see….Politicians,.Estate Agents, Lawyers, CIVIL SERVANTS, …. – we may be onto something, all in the name of a healthy’ marketplace’.
    Gets my vote

  • So pointless.
    We should only really compare to funds with the same universe of 30 stocks.
    How will she do next year I wonder? ( I wonder if we’ll even hear?! )

    Shouldn’t worry, she’s due a bonus, and chimps go to pieces on toot.

  • braindeed said “Tense?”
    – Past or future, makes no odds ;p
    Nah, just pernickety as usual 🙂

    But you make another good point…. she had all of £21K – if that’s all one of those Russian fund mangers had to play with they would have probably done even better ( especially given that they probably didn’t take transaction costs into account – the chimp bought and held, whereas they could have traded in and out ).

  • …..But…but… Stephen Hester says he can’t attract the talent without the large bonuses…I heard it on the news tonight so it must be true.

  • Perhaps there is a lesson in this…Pay peanuts, you get monkeys. Pay millions and you get errr, well a far less able order of primate.

  • Chimps are apes, not monkeys. Bankers are monkeys. So yes, clockslinger, you’re right.
