(March 2022) Former Goldman Sachs Southeast Asia Chairman Tim Leissner has testified that he had a $41,000 a month side job in 2015 at the family office of David Bonderman (founder of top private equity firm TPG), while he is still a partner at Goldman Sachs without disclosing the conflict of interest.  The role was at Wildcat Capital Management, which manages the personal fortune of David Bonderman, who is estimated to have a fortune of $4.5 billion today with private equity firm TPG going public in January 2022.   In 2016, Tim Leissner left Goldman Sachs.  In a statement by Wildcat Capital Management: “Mr. Leissner was never a Wildcat employee.  He did serve as a consultant beginning in the summer of 2015 but was immediately terminated when the circumstances around his departure from Goldman Sachs became known.”  In the ongoing trial of Malaysia 1MDB, ex-Goldman Sachs Southeast Asia Chairman Timothy Leissner testified that he and ex-Goldman Sachs banker Roger Ng had arranged for ex-Malaysia Prime Minister Najib Razak 3 children to get jobs at Goldman Sachs and used their wives to front $35 million of kickbacks.  In the end, Nooryana Najwa Najib, daughter of Najib Razak through the introductions, secured a job at top private equity firm TPG Capital in the analyst program, as a role at Goldman Sachs could be a conflict of interest with the Malaysia government & Goldman Sachs.

(February 2022) In the ongoing trial of Malaysia 1MDB, ex-Goldman Sachs Southeast Asia Chairman Timothy Leissner testified that he and ex-Goldman Sachs banker Roger Ng had arranged for ex-Malaysia Prime Minister Najib Razak 3 children to get jobs at Goldman Sachs and used their wives to front $35 million of kickbacks.  In the end, Nooryana Najwa Najib, daughter of Najib Razak through the introductions, secured a job at top private equity firm TPG Capital in the analyst program, as a role at Goldman Sachs could be a conflict of interest with the Malaysia government & Goldman Sachs.  In another statement by Timothy Leissner, to avoid detection of a $35 million kickback, Timothy Leissner and Roger Ng fabricated a story to disguise the payment with Roger Ng’s wife having invested into Timothy Leissner’s ex-wife businesses in China and the incoming $35 million was a return on the investment.  Roger Ng lawyer had defended the payment was a kickback and that their wives were in a genuine business relationship.

 

Ex-Goldman Sachs Banker Roger Ng Receives $35 Million in 1MDB Kickbacks from Southeast Asia Chairman Timothy Leissner

United States prosecutors had presented in federal court opening trial on 14th February 2022 that ex-Goldman Sachs banker Roger Ng had received $35 million in  kickbacks from his then-boss Goldman Sachs Southeast Asia Chairman Timothy Leissner and alleged mastermind Jho Low for his role in the 1MDB Malaysia Sovereign Wealth Fund Scandal.  The defence by Roger Ng’s lawyer was the money belongs to his wife from a business venture with the ex-wife of Timothy Leissner.  The defence also described the $4.5 billion from 1MDB Malaysia state investment fund as “perhaps the single largest heist in the history of the world” but Roger had been made a scapegoat for failures at Goldman Sachs that enabled the fraud.   In 2010, the defendant Roger Ng had warned superiors that Jho Low  was a politically exposed person, and Goldman Sachs needs to exercise caution when dealing with Jho Low.

Founded in 2009 shortly after Najib Razak became Malaysia’s Prime Minister, 1MDB (1Malaysia Development Bhd) was set up as a sovereign investment fund to finance infrastructure projects and related economic projects to spur economic growth in Malaysia.

It became a political and financial scandal as the key businessman Jho Low who is believed to have masterminded the plan, had diverted the 1MDB funds to fund his personal and associates’ lifestyle, including making the Hollywood movie: Wolf of Wall Street, buying a $250 million yacht (Equanimity) and $35 million Bombardier private jet, giving lavish gifts to Victoria secret model Miranda Kerr and Hilton hotel heiress Paris Hilton, investing in luxury real estates, paintings and many more.

 

Goldman Sachs $6.5 billion Bonds Underwriting

In July 2020, Goldman Sachs agreed to pay $3.9 billion to the Government of Malaysia to resolve all 1MDB criminal and regulatory proceedings.  The in-principle agreement to pay $3.9 billion to the Government of Malaysia, comprises of $2.5 billion direct payment and a further guarantee of at least $1.4 billion of assets that had been seized by governments worldwide.

With the $3.9 billion settlement, the Government of Malaysia will withdraw all criminal charges and no further charges will be brought against Goldman Sachs, its subsidiaries, or any of their employees, except for former employees Tim Leissner and Roger Ng.

This in-principle agreement settles Malaysia’s probe of Goldman Sachs role in raising $6.5 billion through 3 bond sales for 1MDB between 2012 and 2013.  The $6.5 billion bond sales was led by Tim Leissner, who was Goldman Sachs Southeast Asia Chairman.  The leading American investment bank received $600 million in fees, representing more than 9% of the transaction.  The more than 9% underwriting fee of the $6.5 billion bond sales paid to Goldman Sachs is unusually high in investment banking, with fees generally decreasing as the deal size gets larger.

In a Facebook post on 6th April 2021, Najib Razak commented (In Malay Language) that the bankruptcy notice is an attempt to destroy his political career.  If declared bankrupt, he will not be able to have an official role in politics, would lose his seat as a member of parliament and not stand as an election candidate in future elections.
