If it's any consolation, I dislike those who don't get caught even more as they continue to dupe the unsuspecting little old ladies and gentlemen out of their life savings in theikr greedy quest for commissions without any regard for morals at all.

Oh, I don't have recruiters. Don't need them. I don't place people in the Banking/Financial sectors either, even on a bet. :wink:


Nice to hear that! Do take care of your employees and they will perform double what you expect

hope your banker reads this post and realizes what you think of bankers in general, then no one can save you.

Many of those fired in Sing have never even sold toxic products, so forgive us bankers if we stare at you like a misfit wherever you go.

But then again we need people like you: http://bit.ly/Et8Ik

I hope your are able to pay your recruiters in your agency instead of throwing them on the street like other cr*p companies

For once in 4 years, I can keep it short and sweet, you talk shit, and are not kidding anyone! In fact i would call you a pure amateur con artist, still wet behind the ears! It's been many years since I have used that expression! But a wanker in his 20's deserves all the credit!


I'm sorry, was that a brain fart? http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/brain_fart
Maybe the vinegar or its fumes you know...

Congratulations! You have just flamed the entire private banking industry that employs thousands of people in Singapore and has brought in billions of money to our small island. I was just a lowly relationship manager, do direct your challenge to an Invesment Advisor or CIO and I'm sure they will hire and give you the fattest of salaries when you win. Better yet, maybe you should become an Investment Banker and teach them a thing or two of how to earn money.

Are you working for State Street? ETFs VS active management is like the never ending argument of New World VS Old World wine... Although your ETF preference does indicate your risk tolerance levels and investment mindset. Each to his own and not all are like you or my self for that matter.

And if you knew what you are talking about in the first place, you would be aware that MANY of the people (bankers included) who are out on the street right now, lost their jobs not because of their own fault. THINK about that...


The banking industry DESERVES to be flamed. I'm sorry, you've failed to address any of my claims. Yes, many bankers did lose their jobs, and they did lose them because of their own fault... this is the fundamental concept you cannot seem to understand. The bankers... at all levels... f*cked up! You are out of a job because your wealth management skills were found wanting. If they were good you would have clients that would have insisted on keeping you. How hard is this to understand? The 1,000's of 'bankers' on the streets DESERVE to be on the streets because the provided NO VALUE. It WAS their own fault.

You call yourself a "lowly relationship manager" and yet boast of a $200K salary. What is wrong with this picture? Lying about your salary would be the easy way out. Being paid $200K to be 'lowly' only supports my view that banks put warm bodies into positions to collect fees, regardless of actual ability.

PS: I have my own investment strategy... and ya know what... how about a contest? Each of us will start with $100,000 of funny money. We'll invest in whatever we think will make the best gains over the next 6 months. Winner pays the loser $500 and buys dinner at a nice place. How about it? I say I can kick your ass.

Cheers.

Dreamer,

That's really an educated response considering your academic qualifications. It's a shame you used all that education to just learn how to milk commissions from and destroy the nest eggs of unsuspecting retirees with garbage investment vehicles while you were at Lehman Brothers. I'll bet your Wellesley & Boston educators would be embarrassed to see your level of maturity you are displaying here. You sound more and more like a petulant child than a respected :o banker. You really should learn when to fish and when to just cut bait.

I'm a person hoping to switch to a trading career. I think someone posted that there are such opportunities out there but somehow the thread became less informative. Can someone tell me where is a good place to start looking for a trading job?

I know some of the theoretical stuff, swaps forwards futures. But I do not know where to begin. If possible I prefer to do equity. And from what I read it seems that a lot of traders monitor all markets for trends. It might not be necessary to always specialize.

yah it is really nice to know that there are people who just dont cry for more coins... by the way is better than knowing people whose greed knows no bounds and yes, i am very proud that i dont need a high paying job to stand on my "own 2 feet".

i got a job for you; considering your attitude you may want to work for this guy below:

I am Mr PASCAL ZONGO sourcing for services of an Oversea Investment Manager (OIM) to manage the sum of US$11 Million, this amount represent an over invoiced amount of money from a contract that was awarded to an American Oil exploration company by Gabon National Petroleum in 2005, one year later in 2006,the American company completed the contract and was fully paid by direct Wire transfer for the execution of the contract, leaving the over invoiced sum safely deposited in a special security account managed and monitored by the top officers of the corporation that I represent, this top officer are in charge of the day to day running of accounts and finance section including the auditing department of the corporation and have perfected all documents to back up the payment as to avoid any trace whatsoever, which makes the transaction 100% risk free.

... while generating misery to 80% of the world; yah it is a shame that it only gets flamed, it should get burned to the ground (not metaphorically speaking if you get my drift)
