Great moments in journalism, Risk Magazine edition

Risk Magazine — the finance industry magazine focused on risk management — presented, this very month, its Equity Derivatives House of the Year award for 2008 to… ta daa… Societe Generale.

(The Societe Generale rogue trader did his $73 billion of dirty deeds with — you guessed it — equity derivatives.)

This is by far the best corporate award since Fortune Magazine gave Enron its Most Innovative Company in America award in February 2001 for the sixth consecutive year, right before Enron blew up and went bankrupt.
