    Doesn't really bother me, as long as I'm not involved.
    You mentioned above that you have watched porn. Is this permitted in Islam?

    Do you pray Jumu'ah salah?
    And if you listen to music, why do you say that it's haram?

    Nice attitude...
    I didn't mean it in a derogatory way but if a girl is willing to be with you someone due to monetary incentive, surely they have the right to do that. Many girls already do that. Supply/demand effectively and you don't have to get a girl to like you.

    Yes, every Jumu'ah I am free, I pray. I like listening to the Khutbahs.

    Is working in the city like you expected before you did? Do you enjoy positions of responsibility within your investment bank? What is the culture and ethos of your firm like?

    Stress testing hmmmmm.... What hedging techniques do you use to maintain the portfolio when an instrument terminates its contract in the last year? How do you use the dynamic replication?

    Not currently, I'm in a full-time summer position but I've been offered workshop placements with other leading financial institutions in the near future.
    Can you please share the name of position?

    Yes pretty much, I've had previous experiences. Yes, I thought I was going to be the coffee boy but it's actually quite a nice environment, apart from the fact that everyone is busy 24/7 so I have to use my initiative quite a lot. It's quite a nice environment, with heavy emphasis on client focus. Like 1/3 of employees speak french, it's frustrating when they have conversations in french right in front of me.. but then again it's a french IB.

    I haven't a clue. Options maybe? I don't know.. It's only my 3rd day . I'm still learning the technicalities behind fixed income securities.

    I don't know if I'll break into banking, it's quite a competitive industry.

    How did you get in without any prior basic knowledge? I must say you are very lucky.
