    😂 You’re 22 averaged 98% and only got 5A’s?

    The A* was introduced in 2010. So you started A Levels aged 13 and finished at 15?

    Come on, at least troll to a high level.

    Did you go straight into a hedge fund after uni or did you enter a graduate scheme in banking or accounting before? Also, what sort of strgategy does the hedge fund use (like global macro, long/short equity, distressed debt, merger arbitrage etc)? And do you enjoy your job?
    Yes I went into buy side straight away. However, I don't do a client-facing job. I am a quant. It is possible to do if you have a Masters in some extremely pointless subject like Number Theory. The funds figure that you'll find a way to process price data in a slightly new way and make them slightly richer.

    Why don't you buy your mum & dad ferraris?
    Because I need a roof over my head, champagne and escorts with slim figures and sexy blonde hair.

    Curious as to what will trigger this devaluation? I recently found a property I really like but decided not to make an offer as I anticipate there might be a property crash in the next couple of years and the last thing I want to get into is negative equity.

    I’ve decided I might use my savings to go travelling instead and will start my business in the process.
    Rising interest rates and the uncertainty driven by Brexit moving more Chinese money into mainland Europe's property markets. London still presents an excellent investment but less so during this transition phase.

    House prices have fallen for the last 6 months. In part because after Brexit a few hundred thousand people left (This is anticipated to increase) and because government help to buy schemes are finally starting to work. Less market saturation.

    Still for 99% of people property is Never a bad investment.
    Depends on what kind of return you want and how much risk you're willing to tolerate. I don't believe the property market in London will outperform global equity markets in the next 5 years.

    That’s what I’ve been thinking too. Watching the rise in interest rates and also curious as to what the foriegn investors in London will do as their property prices start falling. Also curious whether the property developers will start slowing down.

    Why do you buy women? Do you find it fulfilling?

    I’m assuming any woman who is easily impressed by money is likely to be shallow. How does it feel to be surrounded by women who lack meaningful depth? I imagine it gives a feel good feeling and strokes the ego, however, I also see it as a false positive feeling that most likely leaves one feeling empty.

    I personally cannot tolerate guys who are shallow, even worse is the combination of shallow and academically challenged.

    There’s a time I used to welcome and tolerate shallow guys in my life and that’s because I used to be shallow myself. My outlook has changed so much overtime, however, I do wish I’d grown up much earlier in the way I manage relationships.

    Would you consider Bitcoin or other blockchain currencies to be good investments? What are some good investments for someone inexperienced and with a small sum of money? What percentage of my income should I be setting aside for savings and investments? Would you invest in something that is promising but unethical?

    Why are you taking this nonsense seriously? Even if he has top academics and went into IB he's not going to be given a top exit opportunity after say, graduating a year early and putting in 2 years of wage slavery. WTF do you think he was doing as an analyst, curing cancer?

    The fact he thinks mathematical ability is to important in IB shows his lack of pedigree

    Haha, just indulging some fruli curiosity.

    Also genuinely interested in views on where our property market is heading so analyst perspectives valuable. What he said seems to tally with a lot of what I've heard and read.

    My other question is, do you think the China economy might collapse in the near future? When I say the near future, I'm talking 2-5 years time. Because if it were to collapse, it would have a knock-on effect on our property market. A friend from mainland China suggested that China is on a timebomb, but this was a couple of years ago when we had this conversation. She's snapped up a couple of million pound properties in SW London, courtesy of her parents who are based in China. She's one of many examples of my peers who have been able to do this sort of thing.

    I also imagine a chunk of the property developers and investors in London/UK are attached to Chinese money.
