Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: BAIR-ing-JES

Sentence: After the baringesse of his personal banker and his financial planner, Bob's life became downgraded to standard and poor. Furthermore, upon finding out that OED. had redefined "Profit" as an archaic word no longer in use; and that his key banker was living in luxury in the Virgin Islands, the term "instutionalised investor" repercussioned in his head.

Etymology: Formed from BARING: Speculative trading on Singapore's International Monetary Exchange caused the spectacular collapse of Barings Bank, the United Kingdom's oldest investment bank. Barings bank was founded in 1762 by John and Francis Baring & LARGESSE: generous bestowal of gifts. 2. the gift or gifts, as of money, so bestowed.
