Product description


We all know the quickest and surest way to a million is through the City, but how is it done? "All You Need To Know About The City" is designed to help anyone who needs to know how the City works. No matter whether you work in them or are an interested bystander, the international markets affect you. But few people understand how they work or what the principal players do. This book demystifies them using very simple language. It's designed for people in front-line fee-earning roles as well as mid-office and back office staff. "It's aimed at people in their first jobs as bankers, brokers, fund managers, lawyers, accountants, insurance brokers, surveyors, actuaries, PRs, recruiters and headhunters," says Stoakes. "But it's also for support staff such as secretaries, PAs and business managers as well as people in Accounts, HR, IT, Business Development, PR, compliance, settlement and custody. They need to understand what the fee-earners do in order to support them in their roles. That's because for City institutions to compete these days, all of their people need to understand the business.

From the Publisher

The global financial crisis has made what goes in the City of London's financial markets more important and relevant than ever.

What is the credit crunch and sub-prime lending? What are toxic tranches and SIVs and why do they matter?

If you're working in, or are thinking of working in the City, this book gives you the answers. Designed to be a quick and easy read, it explains what everything is and how it all connects.

As the author - a City insider - says:
"This is all I've ever needed to know in almost 30 years of working in and around the City"
