Greatest Hits: Volume 18 (Just The Links)

Greatest Hits

Well, say hello to a happy Saturday!

I don’t know about you, but this felt like a heck of a week – and it was only four days long!

Which is a reminder that September ALWAYS starts off with a bang in the investment banking industry.

There are clients to catch up with, deals to get over the line, and new ones to cook up.

And that’s before the US really comes back online, which will only happen after Monday’s Labour Day.

On top of that, I am nursing a bit of a hangover after a fiery Friday night in Mayfair.

Hence, let’s get straight to it – here are some top-quality finance reads to get your weekend off to an amazing start.

Have a wonderful day everyone – and I’m off to get some coffee and a Nurofen!
