Mr. siddhu, hats off to your writing skills. one of the things you can possibly pick up is writing ..join the league of Investment-banker-turned-writer like Mr.chetan bhagat..Neways
Nicely written and an interesting read ...It is really an exciting and glamorous career, however One suggestion to young turks who want to make it big ...weak stems wont sustain the pressure ..so fortify your numerical and financial skills before jumping into the ocean of numbers ..Best luck

my life as in investment banker
by Ram on Dec 20, 2005 10:39 PM

ofcourse the article has its fair share of exaggerations (albeit maintaining vehemently that they are "slight") on the "amount of crap". i am not an ivnestment banker in the strict sense of the term (which encompasses Mergers and Acquisitions team, Debt and Equity Capital Markets, Assets and Liability management etc only - typically Corporate Finance). The other "i-Banking" that is popular in India is what is within the banks rightly called "Global Markets". This perhaps is more of a money cow, and less of a "make presentations and globetrot" kind of a job. And which comprises of sales, trading, research and associated functions such as Risk Management, Documentation, Trade Ops, Limits, Settlements, and so on..

my take is: there is a fair amount of crap in ANY (repeat - ANY) job u would do after graduating out of a "top notch" b-school. one thumbrule could be - given equal amount of crap in two jobs, choose the one that pays more :))

I agree with your point but the way i see it there may be many who would be enjoying similar kinda profile.I am working as a Private Banking Relationship Manager but this one really scares me.

The article is excellent and bull's eye. I am sailing the same boat. The best way a person could define an investment banker.
