    Bankers are actually some of the kindest and friendliest people - the way the media portrays them is completely inaccurate. You obviously will have the immoral gordon gecko stereo types in the industry however that's rare tbh and you get stereo types in all industries.

    'shout out my boys on wall street'

    they don't know you exist and if they do they don't mind ensuring that your parents are ****ed by the rigged financial system and bought politicians

    which bankers are kind and friendly? no, i mean which ones don't give money to charities as a means of embezzling money and avoiding tax?

    as for gordon gecko why do you call wall street bankers 'your boys' if they are ordinary workers - sounds a bit juvenile and bratty

    as for 500k a year in investment banking by the age of 30 - you are more likely even with Goldman to be making about 130-150 best case scenario in IB even in the front
    that is laughable
    if you want to make real money down that route you will need to go into private equity and hedge funds and with a 2:1 in idolising scum you don't sound like you will make the cut

    :zomg: I have the exact same goals as you :jumphug:

    I'd ideally want to graduate with a 1:1, however if life comes in the way Idm as long as I graduate with a 2:1 and still manage to get onto a funded PHD programme. What research field do you want to go into? I've still yet to decide what field I'd like to go into but something that I can develop further from my degree. (Theoretical Physics)

    Where do you want to go travelling? I've got a whole bucket list:
    1) Monaco/Paris/Marseilles, France. 2) Denver, Colorado (USA) 3) Rome, Italy.
    4) Barcelona, Spain. 5) Venice, California (USA). 6) New York. (USA)
    7) Hong Kong, China. 8) Tokyo, Japan. 9) Abu Dubai, UAE,
    10) Melbourne, Australia. 11) Switzerland. 12) Iceland ---> Northern lights :heart:

    Are you a cat/dog person? What pet breed would you get?
    I'm a cat type of person though I :heart: Husky dogs = Life complete.
    I can't stand small dogs, they would just annoy tf out of me.

    Bankers didn't do this, some mortgage backed securities traders played a part

    which bankers are kind and friendly? no, i mean which ones don't give money to charities as a means of embezzling money and avoiding tax?
    Most of the ones that I personally know and speak to. They're just normal human beings like anyone else. No one's embezzling tax by donating to a cause they care about.

    as for gordon gecko why do you call wall street bankers 'your boys' if they are ordinary workers - sounds a bit juvenile and bratty
    Because finance is a tight-knit community and that comment was tongue-in-cheek

    as for 500k a year in investment banking by the age of 30 - you are more likely even with Goldman to be making about 130-150 best case scenario in IB even in the front

    This is false.

    By 30, you'll be around VP level and all-in comp is closer to £300-350k for IBD at that stage. Also, PE is an exit opportunity taken after a few years within IBD.

    It'd be nice if you stopped being so aggressive for no reason. How in the world are you going to be a millionaire? Do expand.

    because they in an unequal society make the rich richer and the poor poorer whilst themselves becoming moderately, moderately, moderately wealthy

    not sure you quite understand IB if you think an analyst or associate is going to be raising capital for companies to 'grow'

    these are people with much to gain from dropping deformed CDO's on the heads of minority single parents and asset stripping family businesses and little to gain from helping anyone in any way - that sounds immoral to me

    it will feel nice for you to put this to the back of your head and obsess over your 2k 3k watch but when you drop at 43 due to heart attack induced by stress over a lack of job security, or realise at 50 you just spent 30 years of your life ruining the opportunities of immigrant children by crippling public services through fraudulent bailouts, you probably will wish you went into consulting or started a business that didn't facilitate an MIC which kills babies in countries 3,000 miles away

    You don't know what investment bankers do at all, by the sounds of this.. I'm guessing you watched the Big Short and now you're an expert?

    Please, explain how investment bankers have anything to do with 'dropping CDOs on the heads of minority single parents'. I'm intrigued as to how in any way that connects to the role of someone working in the Investment Banking Division.

    not even gonna respond to your first comment as not being able to tell it was a joke means there is no hope

    Anyways, what do you mean 'even with goldman', what is it/how can I get it? also what is private equity? I've heard of hedge funds that's where they hedge money right?

    Yeah you're probably right I don't have the cut just i want to be a banker, any advice?

    'some' just a few then. What does give these select few people to play God and mess with the lives of working people in the world who don't take more than their fair share?

    haha a tight knit community I'm sure he has Lloyd Blankfein on WhatsApp swell

    Hate to tell but banks have literally hundreds of VP's so i don't think you will be having meals with Dimon just yet - as for 300k that is best case scenario with woe
    ful job security and 11 days holiday a year to flex the money attained ruining lives

    It would be nice if you weren't a usury apologist who didn't say 'do expand' at the end of each comment they type out like the smarmy private school creature they are

    you want to be an investment banker and you don't know about goldman or private equity... good luck

    sounds to me like you pirated WOWS and now think you are about to make a couple hundred million dollars over the phone, will be reality check for sure

    Still doesn't connect to what an investment banker does... And, if I'm really going to touch on this subject, you'll know that the meltdown was caused by several parties: overzealous home owners with no income to support their purchases, mortgage lenders, ratings agencies, MBS traders, pension funds and hedge funds. It doesn't take one measly blow from a couple traders to bring down an economy dude.

    haha a tight knit community I'm sure he has Lloyd Blankfein on WhatsApp swell
    Yes, because the people who aspire to be bankers are generally very well networked with current bankers. Lloyd Blankfein has nothing to do with this..

    Hate to tell but banks have literally hundreds of VP's so i don't think you will be having meals with Dimon just yet - as for 300k that is best case scenario with woe
    ful job security and 11 days holiday a year to flex the money attained ruining lives
    IBD VP 3s make £300-350k on average, high flyers are above the £500k mark. Again, Dimon has nothing to do with this. If you knew anyone in the industry, you'd know what level the pay comes in at.

    It's illegal to offer less than 20 days a year of holiday in the UK. All banks usually have 25-28 days of holiday + 10-13 days of paid sick leave/national holidays.

    It would be nice if you weren't a usury apologist who didn't say 'do expand' at the end of each comment they type out like the smarmy private school creature they are
    I'm asking because you clearly don't know what you're talking about and are here to troll. This exchange has all but affirmed my suspicion that you're here to troll.

    I'm not going to continue this conversation.

    Yay :jumphug:

    Yeah a 2.1 would still be great, and it's probably more realistic for me haha I want to go into veterinary parasitology, not sure if I want to focus on epidemeology etc yet, but I'd like to study something like Echinococcus granulosus. Tapeworms are pretty cool. I'm hoping to apply in December!

    Oh wow, I always admire people who do physics, I would have loved to have been good at it

    They all seem like amazing places! I want to go to a few similar. Places like Melbourne, Venice, Vienna, Athens, New York, Iceland, Sweden, Hawaii, Japan, Egypt and so on.

    Yeah they are pretty cool Ah I'm a dog person! I would ideally have loads of breeds, big and small, a Great Dane, a Boxer, a French Bulldog, a Poodle, a German Shepherd, I could keep going but it's just not realistic then
