Témoignage : « J’ai 29 ans. Je travaillais à la City comme trader. J’ai quitté Londres pour Paris »

Notre interview parue la semaine dernière et intitulée « Je n’ai jamais rencontré d’anciens banquiers de la City qui se disaient heureux d’être rentrés à Paris ! » a suscité de nombreuses réactions, notamment sur notre site UK, où un trader parisien pense exactement l’inverse. Jugez plutôt par vous-même : « J’ai 29 ans. Je travaillais comme trader à Londres. J’ai quitté Londres pour Paris pour […]

Un Autre Regard Sur L’Activisme Actionnarial

Alors que les Etats-Unis, à l’initiative de la sénatrice Elizabeth Warren, tente de faire voter une loi anti-activiste, le Brokaw Act, démontrant ainsi l’ampleur du phénomène auprès des sociétés américaines, l’activité économique et financière de ces derniers mois signe l’émergence d’une nouvelle forme d’activisme actionnarial en Europe. Il est vrai que les fonds activistes continuent de ne pas avoir bonne presse. L’action récemment orchestrée […]

Here’s what Moelis, Perella Weinberg, Evercore and Houlihan Lokey pay in the U.S.

Big investment banks have been cutting cutting pay, so it’s worth keeping tabs on what boutique investment banks are offering in terms of salaries and bonuses. The trend of elite boutique investment banks muscling into the league tables continues, particularly in the U.S. We’ve compiled base salary data for the U.S. employees of four boutiques, all of which made the top six of […]

Janus Henderson CEO: “Blunt” graduate recruitment needs to change

In CEO terms, Andrew Formica, the 46-year-old chief of $330bn active manager Janus Henderson, is something of a spring chicken. It was therefore a shock to be called a “dinosaur” in a pubic forum by one of his 21-year-old employees.

UBS is thinking about its bankers’ lifestyle. The only place to work at Goldman Sachs

Andrea Orcel, the president of UBS’s investment bank, says that the bank is listening to its employees. While most large investment banks have announced plans for a new EU hub as the UK prepares to leave the bloc, UBS is the one big firm to remain suspiciously quiet. There’s a reason for this, according to Financial News, which interviewed Orcel […]

Voici l’ex-banquier désormais (peut-être) le plus influent au monde…

Un an seulement après avoir lancé son propre parti politique En Marche !, Emmanuel Macron a réussi à se faire élire président de la République et faire ainsi barrage à la candidate du Front National Marine Le Pen. Mais plus impressionnant encore est le fait qu’un ex-banquier d’affaires ait réussi à gagner les faveurs d’une majorité d’électeurs français. Pour rappel, Emmanuel Macron […]

Where the juniorization’s really happening on Wall Street: a chart

These are the top M&A boutiques. This is how much they pay

Boutique investment banks have generally had a spectacular 2016. While the M&A fee pool has generally declined on a stellar 2015, boutiques have been grabbing a larger market share and profits have been on the up. The good thing about working for a boutique investment bank is that they’re not (or at least, not yet) constrained by pay rules that prevent […]
