Is Youtube Allowed as a Side Hustle?

Does anyone have any experience with working in IB and having a YouTube channel on the side? It's a finance/news channel btw.

Yeah - it's allowed just don't talk about what you're working on and don't be obnoxious or say anything you won't say to your md

Eh, be careful and talk to your compliance.  Different banks interpret the regulations differently (I'm going to let that sink in on how problematic that is.....could probably write a book on the topic but I digress)

When I was in equity research, per our company policy, I was not allowed to even click "Like" on someone's LinkedIn newstory about an economic event or something in the market. Per our compliance, "it could be perceived as an endorsement of those views by my role as an advisor".  So, talk to compliance and see what they say. 

Now, a video on cats jumping around, I think you're good.
