He appears to be a marketer of Madoff via Vill. only, not an investor.
To show you haw small time her is, I saw a company description recently, where her was a director and owner of part of it. The total value of the company was less than $100,000US.

:holly: However, the small business may have only be representative of "one" investment or company. So, if that one companys value was 100,000--he might have been partnered in other things and had many diverse other investments as well.
:reindeer: I'm no scholar, but many very wealthy people are heavily diversified. thus when a loss occurres there's still plenty others whom keep one afloat?? Didn't someone say he was from a wealthy family???:newyear::candycane::poinsettia:

On the web it mentioned that he and Prince Michael of Yugoslavia were working for the getnleman who commited suicide. They were supposed to market the products to the rich and royals through their connections. It did not mention that the two had any money invested in that scheme.

Here is the picture I've asked for almost two years ago::whistling:

Here are two rare new pics of Philippe Junot, he visited the
traditional Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany on September
19, 2009. The Oktoberfest is a beer and amusement festival
and he celebrated together with the Prince and Princess of
Schaumburg-Lippe. No idea, what connection they have or
if it's just been pure coincidence ;)

I think but am not sure that Philippe Junot lost a lot of money with Madoff .

Odette 09-21-2009 06:50 PM

:previous: I believe Philip Junot and one of the Princes of Yugoslavia were
working for the French gentelman (the one who commited suicide).
Indirectly they were working for Madoff but did not invest any of their money.

He has aged but he still looks the same if that makes any sense. He still has that "same look" that he had when he was with Caroline.

The lady is Sandra Cerfontaine, but I've no additional information about
her, I'm sorry..
Philippe Junot is 69 now, but I totally agree he still looks a lot like the
man he used to be ;)

Iceflower, you are a great person!:flowers: These photos are like an archives!:smile::previous:
It's rare to see the photos of Philippe Junot!
Thank you for posting them!:flowers:

It seems that he is aging well. I thought he was too old and worldly for Caroline, but they looked good together.

Sandra Cerfontaine is someone working in the Dutch/Flemish-speaking print media:
L'événement: Voir et être vu | Dupedi

She also seems to have art galleries in Saint-Tropes and Brussels.

Sad news, at least financially, for Philippe Junot, who's been hit, like the rest of us, by the economic crisis. This from AP, yesterday : Philippe Junot was one of the clients of Rene-Thierry Magon de la Villehuchet, a prominent investor who came from a long line of aristocratic Frenchmen and founder of an investment fund that lost millions with Bernard Madoff. M. de la Villehuchet committed suicide in New York 2 days ago. Another famous client of his was Prince Michel of Yugoslavia.

Slightly OT, but related to above. If anyone is interested, the personal assets of Bernie Madoff and wife are being auctioned in NYC next weekend. The lots (jewels, furs, art) are available for you to see at As a true metaphore for his like, most of the jewelry is very big and flashy but of very indifferent quality.

Whether or not Junot lost any money personally with Bernie Madoff, I would imagine that Junot is in deep financial distress simply because his Madoff commissions have gone to zero. Bernie paid huge commissions to get money - Junot is now getting zero from that. To make matters worse, Junot no doubt has plenty of angry/depressed friends who trusted him to invest their money and now it turns out that Junot put it with a swindler. To make matters worse, it now turns out that there was virtually no institutional money with Madoff for the simple fact that institutions do "due diligence" on money managers, and Madoff couldn't pass some simple tests (he was audited by a 2-man jewish outfit that operated out of a shopping mall in upstate New York - they have since pleaded guilty to fraud). Basically, the only clients Madoff had were people who either trusted Madoff because he was a fellow Jew (90+% of his clients), or were too lazy to do any due diligence. Junot, I guess, fell into this latter category. Junot and his gentile aristocrats would have been a welcome source of non-Jewish money for Madoff.

Junot was not certainly what you'd call a *handsome* man , but back in the 70's, judging by the pictures, he had that " certain something" ,he was quite sexy and charming, and I can see why a very young Caroline ( or any other young lady) would fall for a mature, experienced man like Junot was.

Moonmaiden23 12-03-2009 08:41 PM

Have Caroline and Junot maintained cordial relations? Do they speak occasionally?

I think I remember reading somewhere that he was in contact with the princess around the time of her mother's tragic death, and that he had also offered his condolences after Stefano died.

But I am not certain.

Except for Junot Caro has made a spectacular success of everything else she has done in life- Ernst included as she has Alex from that marriage.
Caro is the fine outstanding lady she is today despite Junot.
There is something about him I cannot pinpoint as to why I do not think he was for Caro.
Junot is simply cosmopolitan; and caro is a an aristocrat through and through.
