Images and Illusions of Investment Banking - This Is Not My Beautiful House; This Is Not My Beautiful Wife
David Weaver, who has worked in various capacities on Wall Street since 1982, will examine current public perceptions of investment banking by deconstructing just exactly what is, in fact, the definition of the term, and how it has evolved. His goal is to help people appreciate the various components of investment banking and make decisions (personal career, regulatory, business) based on a richer understanding of the overall business of wholesale bankers. This is the 2013 Sir Thomas Gresham Docklands Lecture. The event was chaired by Alderman Professor Michael Mainelli.
