Go to Book for Technical Skills?

I often see "Investment Banking: Valuation, Leveraged Buyouts, and Mergers & Acquisitions" written by Joshua Rosenbaum and Joshua Pearl as the go to book for technical skills. It is often described as not being as dry as other publications. What books have helped you guys build your technical skills? Should this be considered the go to book?


Does anyone know anything about client portfolio management (vs portfolio manager)?

Looking around but have been unable to locate much info.

What does a client portfolio manager really do?

It looks like they relay investment and economy theses- is this a back office role?

With the client side, is there a lot of travel?

What does the comp look like, at junior and senior levels? It makes me very nervous to take a non revenue-generating role.

Any thoughts or input would be great.

Thanks.

MSF Question and Answer

I get a ton of emails and answer a ton of posts asking similar questions so I thought I would answer the most common ones I get here and allow others to post their questions so everyone can see them and the subsequent answers. Hope this helps.

Summer Analyst Eligibility

* The SA position is really structured for undergraduate students. The whole reason undergraduates go for a SA position is because they aren't ready to work full time. If you are in a one year masters program is really doesn't make much sense to try for an SA spot when you are eligible for FT analyst recruiting.

Now if you feel that you need internship experience in order to be more competitive then your best bet is to look for an unpaid internship or something off cycle. This will give you FO finance type experience, increase your knowledge and something you can do during the school year thereby not making you ineligible for full time positions.

Does this mean you can't apply for a SA gig? No.


3 Myths About Excellence That I Used to Believe

This week, I want to share with you one of the sources that inspired my quest to deconstruct excellence. It was a fascinating (but very long) report in Sociological Theory that made me realize that the three things I thought I knew about what makes great people who they are were complete myths. This is what I learned:

The Jane Goodall of Excellence

Hamilton College Professor Daniel F. Chambliss spent a year and a half conducting a feat of unprecedented sociological research in the world of swimmers - living with coaches, attending practices, going to team meetings and parties, and interviewing over a hundred national and world class athletes.
