The Capital Market System
The information you will read in this book is not for the beginner to learn how to invest money. Nor is it for those who for the first time wish to teach themselves how to trade stocks and become wealthy. If this is you, then I suggest you put this book down and walk away. The capital market system can be complex, save your money because somewhere on the shelf are countless books written with good intentions by good people. I’m sure you can find one or even two to satisfy your curiosity.
If you, however, are genuinely looking to glean a peek into the underworld of Investment Banking and Capital Markets? Then, my friend, I suggest you read on. You may have just found the single most important collection of information no one has told you about.
The path you are about to embark is much more than delving into a new world. It’s about gleaning a behind the scenes understanding of how the investment community works. And I mean how it really works, in real time. The highs and the lows, the no holds barred knock down rock’em sock’em world of money. How it’s made and how it’s lost.
There are no secrets about the capital market system, yet nobody will tell you everything you need to know. This is not done on purpose, mostly it’s because it can be a complex situation that is constantly evolving. Heraclitus, a Greek philosopher, is quoted as saying “change is the only constant in life.”
If at the end of this journey into the backroom deal making, you decide you want to be part of a profession that will “Give No Quarter with No Quarter Given” then you will at least be somewhat prepared before you take your first baby step. Now, if you’ll fasten your seatbelts, we’ll begin a journey for which few have been able to resist.
