Here are the books which will take you on adventure while at the same time reveal to you the workings of a secretive world.
The ibanker and the Golden Cage
Brace yourself for a wild ride through the fast-paced, decadent, sex-fuelled world of investment banking.
When Alex Shiraz, an average and broke economics student in London, charms his way into a coveted job at the most prestigious investment bank in the world, suddenly everything is at his fingertips – jumping on a plane at a moment’s notice, the most exclusive clubs and parties and beautiful people at every turn.
As he hustles his way up the ladder, drifting away from his girlfriend and befriending a crew of ambitious upstarts, his enigmatic boss is charged with saving the trillion-dollar bank from collapse as the 2008 global financial crisis looms – and it’s up to Alex to do the billion-dollar deal that will save them all. Can he rise to the occasion? Does he have what it takes to seal the deal (in more ways than one)?
With humor, candor and plenty of surprising turns, The Ibanker and the Golden Cage takes us on an epic journey into the heart of international finance as the entire industry threatens to crumble. Part-gripping tale of one man’s quest to achieve glory – and millions – in the financial capital of the world, part-insider’s look at the high-stakes world of investment banking, The Ibanker and the Golden Cage is as addictive and seductive as the world of finance itself.
The Jewel of Rajasthan
Alex Shiraz has left Paris Berkeley Capital and is now a London-based dealmaker who is backed by a consortium of very wealthy and powerful families from around the world.
This story takes him to beautiful Rajasthan where his mission is to secure one of Asia’s most beautiful properties for the consortium. No easy task as another powerful, and very ruthless, group has its eyes on the prize.
More entertaining than dinner with Tom Cruise. More insightful than a Harvard Business School case study.
Finance meets adventure…
