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 […]

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

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 […]

The banks paying juniors the most are not the ones you think

Which investment banks in London pay the juniors in their investment banking divisions (IBD) the most? You might think it would be the big U.S. houses with their deep pockets and deep fees. It’s not, or at least not always. If you’re an analyst in an investment bank and you’re chasing a big pay package you want to work for Bank […]

The hedge fund in question is Aptigon Capital, the new equities strategy started in June last year by Citadel. With offices in New York and Greenwich, Aptigon has already […]
