Gordon Gekko? A French croissant-loving CDS trader? A loud Italian M&A banker? An HBS or LSE student praying to land an internship? A slicked-back hair Scandinavian hedgie? A bald New York 'swinging dick' who lights cigars with 100 dollar notes? A non-finance individual (maybe even a blogger) who uses ibanker techniques to get ahead and succeed? All of the above!
Overglamorised? Big time.
Rocket science? Pas du tout.
Worth the experience? Absolutely!
