Roger the Dodger – £40m king of tax – Business – The Guardian

This morning The Guardian publishes an interesting story about Roger Allan Jenkins who has been usefully employed by Barclays Bank to help it avoid tax problems.  He has mastered the tax regimes of various countries and has done quite well out of it.  He was the boss of the Barclays Capital Structured Capital Markets (SCM), the unit responsible for helping Barclays Bank avoid tax payments in many countries.

The  Guardian: “He is thought to earn more than £40m a year, and is responsible for running a division of Barclays Bank that may have saved it – legitimately, if controversially – from paying billions of pounds in tax revenue.

Fiercely clever, but abrasive with it, he is a daunting figure for those around him at work. And at play, he and his wife can count the likes of Cindy Crawford and Mick Jagger as friends.

Yet few people outside the exclusive world in which he lives have ever heard of Roger Allan Jenkins, a man whose nicknames – Roger the Dodger, The King of the Double Dip – say more about him than he ever would….” More see link below;

    You need to check out Roger Jenkin’s ties to AIG with whom he did a number of tax avoidance shemes of up to US$5 billion each. It would be interesting to see if any of them are being bailed out by the US taxpayer while in the process once again using US tax dollars to line Roger the Dodger’s pockets.

    BTW, I believe that Jonathon Zenios, a long-time liutenant of Roger the Dodger and Iain Abrahams, currently runs the business side of SCM.
