If you noticed your young son was extremely talented at investment banking, how would you handle it?

Would you train him like a serious banker right from the start or let him try any job he wanted and discover banking on his own?

If you decided yes you would train him from a young age, how would you:

introduce him to the industry?
help him avoid injury?
coach him so that he doesn't lose interest?

Did your son start putting his stickers in alphabetical order and with uniform spacing?

Banking doesn't need talent. Anyone can be one with the right training.

sure, anyone can 'be' a banker in the same way that anyone can 'be' a basketball player. but to be michel jordan I think that some level of pure god gifted talent is a prerequisite

I'd let him be a kid and choose his own career path rather than push him into investment banking since I wouldn't try to be a terrible fucking father.

Do you actually know what IB even is? Idk how my kid would be good at like negotiating terms of a merger or syndicating debt for a buyout at a young age. If you meant like excel and powerpoint, i'd find it pretty fuckin weird if my son was making 3 statement models rather than doing normal kid stuff.

So no, I wouldn't do any of the things you mentioned lmao.
