    Never ceases to amaze me how people hear of the money and suddenly decide they want to work in investment banking, without any knowledge of the industry or roles. Best of luck with that, most of your competition have been preparing to apply for these roles for 12-24 months, longer in some cases.

    You speak sense.

    OP, what is your definition of 'massive amounts of money'.

    Couple of mm? Possible
    Bns? - No.
    I agree it's not possible to become a billionaire.

    However, it is worth pointing out the CEOs of Goldman Sachs and J.P. Morgan are both now billionaires. It would be almost impossible to repeat what they have done though.

    IB is **** and gay. Low employment security, high competition, so dispensable, with the besr case scenario low millions. An uneducated car parts stripper can probably make low millions over time with less hassle. A legion of Wall street fantasists who will slave away making CEOs rich while they pound hookers and play golf.

    Are there opportunities to make huge amounts of wealth in investment banking?

    Would you be able to make massive money by learning how the big banks invest and applying it to your own capital?

    And how would this happen?
    Why is it important?

    Also, yes, front running is a great idea.

    Why is it not important? Most people go into banking for the money, and to a lesser extent, the opportunities.

    People don't go into IB to make MASSIVE money unless they are really clueless.

    It's smarter and more common to actually go into it for the opportunities. As in the exit opportunities. If you are lucky you could post IB be making massive money somewhere.

    Personally, I don't have the urge to make loads of money anymore.
