If the events of the last few years have taught us anything it is this: that for all the hand-on-heart conviction and oracular pronouncements – few people have any idea of what is really going on in the City.
An accessible, frank and witty guide to the murky world of finance from an insider’s perspective, The Game aims to completely demystify the Square Mile.
Each chapter looks at a different role within banks, including: Stockbroking; Trading; Research and analysis; Corporate finance. Along with explanations of the roles and common terms (learn to tell your Bloomburg from your Extel) there are personal anecdotes and contributions from leading industry figures.
Perfect for interview preparation, The Game is aimed at anyone interested in working in finance or the law or those who simply want to learn how the system really works.
