The new and gripping BBC drama, “Sea Will Tell,” is a story of love, betrayal and murder. The series tells the tale of Nick Leeson (Rafe Spall), who committed one of the most notorious frauds in banking history.
He was convicted for breaching his employer’s trading rules by speculating on futures contracts worth $1 billion.
In 1995, he lost control of the trades and incurred losses totalling over £800 million. While this may seem like a distant memory to some people today, it is still an important event that shaped financial markets in Asia – especially Singapore.
