Q&A: The Final Cut
Hello WSO. My investment banking journey started with my first post on WSO back in 2006 after I had just received my full time offer as ananalyst. After 15+ years of banking, private equity, and business school, I decided to call it quits and retire. On that note, I wanted to offer up one final Ask Me Anything to the community. Any topic is on the table, including career, relationships, mental health, travel, etc. I will try to be as open as possible, although I'd prefer to avoid rankings / compensation / hours type topics that have already been discussed in detail. Also, please post your questions for all to see, I'd prefer everyone benefits from the feedback, not just a single individual.
I have linked below my latest "Then and Now" post which gives a much more detailed description of my background, but my direct experience is in: MM IBD, LMM PE (LBOs), MBA with geographic experience in the USA and UK, and a wide range of sectors (e.g. industrials, healthcare, tech, etc.). Happy to discuss other career paths, but these are the areas I know best.
