Since September 2011 the Guardian has been running a blog, “Voices of finance”, on which bankers and professionals in the Square Mile speak about their typical working day for anthropologist Joris Luyendijk. Here is an M&A lawyer (with an insanely dull “war story” at the start) and here is a competition lawyer.
Amongst the more interesting monologues is this female head of marketing (“try not to make men look stupid”) and this “banker’s ex-girlfriend“; this salesman for a brokerage firm, and this venture capitalist . (Updated) The saddest is this banker’s wife.
The Guardian’s Voices of Finance blog is ongoing.
