Tycoon Oei Hong Leong Sues Goldman Sachs International over SGD 38 Million Loss
Sep 21 13
TYCOON Oei Hong Leong has claimed Goldman Sachs International misled him into making currency trades that ended up costing him more than ¥3 billion (SGD 38 million) when the market tanked earlier 2013. Oei's lawsuit concerns bets made on the Japanese yen. In the writ of summons filed with Singapore's High Court on September 20, Mr. Oei said he bet on May 15 that the yen would fall against the Brazilian real. On May 22, United States Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke raised the possibility that the central bank's money-printing programme would be scaled back, sending global stock markets into a tailspin. Emerging market currencies like the real slumped while safe haven ones such as the yen strengthened. Rather than falling as Mr. Oei had anticipated, the yen rose against the real. By June 13, Mr. Oei had made six margin calls on his trades - essentially topping up his account so his leveraged position could remain open. On June 17, Mr. Oei closed the trades, suffering a loss of ¥4.231 billion. However, he received ¥1.055 billion as premiums on the trades which was deducted against his losses. That left him in the red by ¥3.175 billion- the sum he is claiming. Mr. Oei's court document said he had relied on claims by Goldman Sachs senior director Mats Dewitte when they met in Singapore before he started trading - statements which later turned out to be false. According to Mr. Oei, Mr. Dewitte had said that the real was anchored to the US dollar in the same way that the Hong Kong dollar is pegged to the greenback. Mr. Oei also alleges that Goldman Sachs contravened part of the Securities and Futures Act.
