Personal finance / investing books for young finance professionals
I will start workinganalyst in London from July 2021. This will be the first time I will earn enough money to save / invest a considerable amount of my income.
While I obviously know quite a bit about the financial industry in general, I am well aware that personal finance / investing is not my core competency as an (aspiring) M&A banker and do not want to make the mistake to base my actions on superficial knowledge or dive in head-first.
Therefore, I would like to do some reading on this topic beforehand..
However, I am afraid that most of the books are either written for complete beginners and do not go much further than "buy and hold forever" and "invest everything in low-cost ETFs" or are already quite specific and do not cover the fundamentals.
I was therefore hoping for book recommendations that lay out a clear way of how to start thinking about your finances and which investments to undertake but are written for people that are already coming from a financial background.
I am aware that this is a very specific request and might require a combination of different books.
Ideally, those books would be more geared towards the UK / European market rather than US (ie with regards to taxation, pension schemes, etc)
I am also grateful for any recommendation that goes beyond books, I am sure many people have been in similar situations when they started their career in finace.
