Dumb shit - bankers / clients demanding in-person meetingsSubscribe
I've been involved in a few different processes where bankers have indicated that we would be much more competitive in a bid process if we had in-person diligence sessions with management teams (who were / are in covid hotspots). Most of these are in covid hotspots, and we actually followed through on one offer and everyone was making fun of some guys for walking in with masks.
I have one comment: have y'all lost your fucking mind? I know half you bankers especially are living out this repressed frustrated masculinity hellscape where you really wanted to be an athlete or in the military or some other tough guy shit, but this right here is out of pocket. These management teams are also old as fuck so are naturally high-risk. Taking health risks during a pandemic isn't baller, chiefs.
