Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A wealthy friend of mine, who started his financial empire in college playing penny poker, told me that the entire trick is to gamble with other people's money. Set up your company, pay yourself a salary, and then if the gamble fails your money is still intact.

So the bankers will not be personally "taking a haircut," it will be the owners of the bank shares.
