Ex-Goldman trader presents cushion-heavy photographic montage of 'Playboy lifestyle'

How can you spot a playboy? Ex-Goldman Sachs trader-turned trader-trainer Anton Kreil seems to suggest that a leading indicator is a collection of strategically placed cushions.

Kreil is running a competition to win ten days at his 'Playboy Penthouse' in Phuket, Thailand. Photographs of the penthouse depict orange and brown cushions in places where the playboying might take place.

Activities during the 10 days will not be restricted to the cushions. There will also be a chance to 'relax and party' with Anton and his friends at exclusive places in the local area. To win the chance to partake of this opportunity, you just need to like Kreil on Facebook.

The competition is reminiscent of something run back in 2007 by Richard Hains at the London office of U.S. hedge fund Portland Place.  Back then, Haines invited people to enter a competition to spend two nights out on the town with him in the West End. This was advertised with an insalubrious video of him cruising Mayfair and Notting Hill in an Aston Martin. Haines is the son of David Haines, founder of the Portland Group. However, the FCA Register suggests that Haines is no longer employed at Portland Place in London today.
