Everyone loves a daddy’s girl, particularly a girl who uses fighting words against his political opponents. Meet Nell Diamond (photos below), the gorgeous red-headed firebrand who happens to be the embattled former CEO of Barclays Bank, Bob Diamond’s daughter.
He resigned his job in the wake of serious accusations in England that the bank may have fixed borrowing rates, a rather mundane topic for our readers that deserves no more attention from us except to say that it happened on his watch so the proud man appears to have taken one for the team so that the business show can go on without him.
What really caught our attention about the UK banking scandal was his gorgeous daughter, Nell. She is the type of girl you would want to keep as a friend rather than cross her, if her Twitter posts are any indication of her mettle. She took right to social media when Bob quit to tell everyone to shove off, except she didn’t use such polite words. Nell told the cabinet members who are investigating the alleged crimes to “go ahead and #HMD.”
HMD in Twitter acronymology is short for “hold my duck” but substitute for the U in duck and you will have a full understanding of her sinfully naughty jargon. Such talk is considered shocking among the stoic elitist in England.
Biography: Nell Diamond is 23 years old, the daughter of Bob Diamond and his gorgeous wife Jennifer Diamond from whom she gets her beautiful face. Mom and dad have been married for 26 years through thick, and only recently thin.
Nell is a sorority girl of literally the highest standing. Nell was president of the Pi Phi sorority at Princeton University, where she obtained the best education money can buy thanks to her wealthy parents, graduating only a year ago in the class of 2011. Her primary school was at Godolphin and Latymer School located in West London. The pricey school has a long tradition of excellence that dates back to 1861.
Professionally she has followed in her father’s footsteps or the last year in the high-flying financial world. Nell works in New York for Deutsche Bank as a low level analyst. Undoubtedly she will be climbing high up the corporate ladder as she matures and her career progresses. One thing in business though is that super hot women have to work twice as hard to gain respect. Online publication Business Insider put her on their list of Wall Street’s hottest offspring. Maybe she does not mind.
But she does mind when someone criticizes her dad and that is a commendable reaction from daughters who are usually more worried about date nights and movies these days. Nell’s Twitter account is here, but we have a sampling for you. July 3rd: “No one in the world I admire more than my dad. 16yrs building Barclays. Shame to see the mistakes of few tarnish the hard work of so many.” The controversial tweet we mentioned earlier has been deleted for some reason. By the way her Facebook page is here but it is much less interesting.
Nell Diamond is a socially conscious young woman who supports the UNICEF cause as part of UNICEF’s Next Generation, which is a clique of young professionals ranging in age from 21 to 40 years old who are interested in the organization’s future. We expect that she has a great future herself. She already possesses one quality of good leaders — loyalty, which she is exhibiting in spades.
