120. Buttonwood International Group. The company that doesn't exist
Edited on Thu Jun-29-06 06:56 PM by DrDebug
Buttonwood International Group calls itself the Global Custodian who claim to have nearly $50-trillion assets in custody.

According to their own website, Buttonwood offers password-enabled access to Global Custodiansand only to Global Custodians. Buttonwoods impressive A-List includes: (1)
* ABN AMRO Mellon Global Securities Service
* The Bank of New York
* Brown Brothers Harriman & Co.
* BNP Paribas ("Saddam Husseins favourite bank")
* Citibank, N.A.
* Deutsche Bank
* Investors Bank & Trust
* J.P. Morgan
* Mellon Trust
* The Northern Trust Company
* Royal Trust
* State Street Corporation

Bold means: 9/11 inside traders
Italic means: offices in WTC

It seems that they have the biggest banks in the world as their customers.

The strange part is that this company says that it is located at One World Trade Center, Suite 7967 on August 20, 2001 (1), however on their next update on December 21, 2001 it is listed at 14 Wall Street, 20th Floor (2).

Note the WTC photo icon below goes to a page dated 9/11 with these sad and scary words, "September 11, 2001: Buttonwood Internationals office support staff was located on the 79th floor of One World Trade Center. As of today, we are unable to confirm that all personnel are safely evacuated." But the main page of December 2001 fails to state how many, or if any, Buttonwood employees died in World Trade Center 1. Curiously, Buttonwood a self-touted management consultant for Global Custodians seems to have ignored the catastrophic events of 9/11 and its impact on its $40 (now $50) trillion clients in the "global securities industry". (3)

They are not listed on any list of tenants and start to sound like a vapor or virtual company. And then there is the testimony of Richard Grove:
Marsh was laundering money through Buttonwood International Group (4)

Is this an empty front company?
