Premiers pas des stagiaires d’été : « Je m’attends à travailler de 9h à… 2h du matin »

Si la génération Z est supposée vouloir plus de flexibilité et un meilleur équilibre travail-vie privée, quelqu’un a visiblement oublié de le dire aux jeunes qui s’apprêtent à travailler dans les banques cet été. Ces derniers s’attendent en effet à travailler dur et sont déjà psychologiquement préparés à cela. « Je suis prêt à travailler de longues heures », affirme un summer […]

The new Asian billionaires who could reshape your banking job in 2018

Asian millionaires and billionaires are getting younger – and that’s forcing private banks in the region to refocus their hiring plans for 2018. Asia now has the highest number of billionaires in the world, leapfrogging the US for the first time, according to a UBS and PwC report released earlier this year. In China, two people – mainly self-made entrepreneurs […]

Voici pourquoi certains banquiers juniors réussissent à devenir managing directors et d’autres pas…

Il y a deux types de juniors dans la banque : ceux qui ont une vision d’ensemble et ceux qui ont le nez collé sur leur écran. Devinez qui devient managing director (MD) ? Pas les seconds. Quand j’étais MD chez Goldman Sachs, je voyais tout le temps ces deux types d’associates. Vous en aviez quelques-uns qui se contentaient d’être […]

Témoignage : « J’ai fait passer des entretiens à des candidats en banque qui avaient des problèmes d’hygiène… »

J’ai longtemps travaillé dans la finance et je ne compte plus les mauvais candidats que j’ai vu défiler en entretien. En fait, je dirais que cela concerne 40% du lot, mais certains s’illustrent plus que d’autres encore dans la médiocrité. Je pense à ceux qui ne sentent pas bons. Leur puanteur est généralement le résultat d’une mauvaise hygiène corporelle…. ou […]

Eight things bankers need to do in their 20s to succeed in their 30s

If you’re a junior investment banker in your 20s, you need a career plan. That may be switching to private equity. It may be kicking off a fintech firm or starting a baby app. But if do you want to stick in investment banking, now is the time to do the groundwork. Juniorisation is all the rage in investment banking, particularly […]

“Junior bankers in Hong Kong are way too obsessed with joining the buy-side”

As you will know if you read my previous article on this site, I’m a third-year analyst at Goldman Sachs in Hong Kong. My fellow analysts and I often chat about our career plans, so I’m now familiar with where bankers my age want to work in the future. But when I started as a full-time banker in 2015 I […]

Juniors are still joining Terra Firma, but plenty of MDs have left

If you’re a graduate who’s thinking of joining a private equity fund, Terra Firma has plenty to recommend it. It offers what’s said to be an “excellent” graduate training programme, along with a savings scheme that should amount to 40% of the cost of an average house in London if you stick around for five years. This might be why graduates […]

KKR has been stocking up with juniors from GS and JPM, again

The ‘Goldman Sachs of private equity’ has been hiring junior bankers in London. And guess what? It likes to hire from Goldman Sachs. Or, maybe…J.P. Morgan. KKR’s most recent London hire is drawn from Jamie Dimon’s stable. Risham Saif, an analyst who spent nearly two years on J.P. Morgan’s leveraged finance team, has just joined as analyst in London. Saif follows in the […]

J.P. Morgan and Goldman Sachs rejected by the 21 year-olds they’d love to hire. UBS fixed income build continues

J.P. Morgan and Goldman Sachs rejected by the 21 year-olds they’d love to hire. UBS fixed income build continues

Pity the world’s most prestigious investment banks, for their deep and often proclaimed love of STEM students is not requited. Those fickle young engineers with an urge to “make an impact” and work on cutting edge technologies are giving banks’ legacy systems a miss and going straight for tech firms, or car companies, or FMCG companies, or oil companies. – Anything, anything […]

Goldman saves juniors from drudgery. Goldmanites take hold at HSBC

The life of a Goldman Sachs analyst appears to be becoming less gruelling and tedious…but potentially more unstable. This is not the result of protected Saturdays or other programs designed to appease overworked junior bankers – robots are driving the overhaul, not HR. Specifically, the bank’s Deal Link computer interface – which is being pushed out across the investment bank after […]
