    There has been around 3 half decent (if that) responses... the outlook is not good for GS, MS, JPM, etc... I thought there would be some thought provoking intelligent conversation to be had, but obviously not.

    Just curious to see what all your answers are for this question. Throughout the interview cycle, I have came across this numerous times - be serious and give detailed answers.

    Disregard client asset liability duration match and client dependent risk preference (i.e. it is your money, not a clients)
    I would invest it in buying a super yacht, and travel the world in it

    Rent in out the the reasonably big but in trouble football club, who's been looking for a stadium for a few years. Sell naming rights to the stadium, and stand names.

    Invest rest in Apple

    40% in UK gilts of short-dated maturity and 10% on deposit. I think staying safer ... the best option at the minute. Not investing in anything too risky or too exotic.
    So why the hell would you put it in Gilts of any length maturity?

    Structure a product whose payout is inversely proportional to the number of people on this thread that are still active posters. Through a SPV repackage these products as AAA notes and sell them to some American pension fund or retail bank.

    Diversification? You need a lot more assets within your portfolio for it to be efficient.
    Well obviously i'm being facetious. You think i'd put 100mill into one huge gamble that possibly wouldn't come off?

    I'd start off by clearing any debts of close relatives and friends, I'd then put a few million away for retirement, a few million for the next couple of years. Whatever is left, I'd give to my two nominated charities.
    Pretty sound plan, no one needs more than that

    By far one of the most retarded threads I have ever seen on here. I don't know anything about investment, which is why I read this......

    I guess the idea would be to invest in those which have had long term success - Mircosoft, Apple, etc.

    I would long USD and short EUR
    Short some EM government bonds
    Long GSK and long some ultra short basic materials ETFs

    I guess the UK/US are much more likely to hike rates in the next six months than ECB.
    GSK have a nice pipeline, had underperformed the last couple of years and are actively entering the asian markets; also Pfizer is facing a revenue cliff next year
    I am bearish on stocks... low volumes on rising markets and high volume in declines, 5.7 increase in US GDP and markets falling...that just doesnt sound good.

    I think he expects a rise in interest rates/reserve requirements (as China is doing) to avoid inflation...

    PS: my products are getting more and more profitable...
