A tough message for young bankers: You’re just cannon fodder

If you’ve left university and achieved a job at a top investment bank, you obviously know how to jump through hoops. You clearly got some good grades, went to some kind of big university, did all the right things. You probably feel like you’re special. But what if you’re not? What if you’re just an over-confident Millennial who’s passing through? I don’t want […]

Never quit banking without first doing this. Morgan Stanley gets hip

It’s possible that people have got banking careers all wrong. That instead of being about getting trained at a prestigious and highly-remunerative name whilst earning CV points, they’re actually about meeting people. – Meeting people and getting the sort of pedigree that will later allow you to borrow huge sums of money from them and the institution. This has been […]

The best and worst banks to work for in London, NY and Asia?

Which are the best banks to work for in the world’s major financial cities? It’s a question that might be answered using the strength of a bank’s business in each location, or the amount it pays its people there. Glassdoor has, however, contrived a different approach: it asks verified employees to rate their experience of working for the bank on a scale […]

Diary of a banking intern: “Everyone here has spent at least two summers in an investment bank already”

Diary of a banking intern: “Everyone here has spent at least two summers in an investment bank already”

Last week, thousands of students started their summer internships at investment banks across London. Look carefully, and  in theory you’ll spot them on coffee runs across Canary Wharf and the City, in their ill-fitting suits and poor choice of tie. Except you won’t. The days of the naive intern are over.  I’m interning in the investment banking division (IBD) of a […]

Voici les 43 meilleures sociétés big data où travailler, d’après J.P. Morgan

Il y a deux décennies, les datas semblaient limitées. Il y avait des données macroéconomiques, comme les chiffres du PIB et des données microéconomiques, comme des rapports d’entreprises. Si vous étiez à l’avant-garde, vous pourriez même avoir fait du trading avec des données… météorologiques. Aujourd’hui, tout a changé. Les datas ont littéralement explosé. Comme l’explique le rapport sur le machine […]

Seven banking interns who are already ahead this summer

If you’ve started your first ever summer internship with an investment bank this month, you’ve probably already encountered an awkward reality. This may be your first time, but for plenty of other people it will be their second, or third, or even fourth. Summers spent in investment banks are no longer a once in a lifetime experience. If you want to convert your summer […]

When AI Becomes the New Face of Your Brand

In the world of marketing, brand anthropomorphism can be a powerful mechanism for connecting with consumers. It’s the tactic of giving brand symbols people-like characteristics: Think of Tony the Tiger and the Michelin Man. Today some companies are taking brand anthropomorphism to a whole new level with sophisticated AI technologies. Consider advanced chatbots, like Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, and Microsoft’s Cortana. Thanks to […]

The real reason Goldman Sachs is eyeing Frankfurt: chaos in London?

As we observed after the British election two weeks ago, one of the big risks of all the political turmoil in the UK is the likelihood that – Brexit or not – U.S. banks decide that Britain doesn’t represent a stable base in Europe any more. After all, Morgan Stanley has around $494m of assets in its European business; Goldman […]
