华尔街是离主最远的地方?

 

今天的教会活动结束后,有个朋友问我说,做金融跟信主耶稣是不是冲突的?我突然又想起了另外一个朋友所说的:数学和物理是离上帝最近的学科,而华尔街是离主最远的地方。

《Why I Left Goldman Sachs》里面同样说道了高盛的文化。其实高盛的Principles里面同样清楚地表达了客户至上的道理:

1. Our experience shows that if we serve our clients well, our own success will follow.

12. To breach a confidence or to us confidential information improperly or carelessly would be unthinkable.

14. We expect our people to maintain high ethical standards in everything they do, both in their work for the firm and in their personal lives.

说得其实都挺漂亮的吧?不过高盛在金融危机之前,还是成为了一家“对冲基金”,甚至跟自己的client成为交易对手,赚取大量的额外收益。利用客户的信息跟客户做对手盘,这个还算是客户至上么?这也是这本书作者强烈bs高盛文化的一点。

认同一家公司的文化是做得开心的首要前提。

《Why》书中倒是也提到一些关于高盛面试——至少是作者作为面试官时,所考虑的申请者因素,供那些仍然想去投行卖命朋友们的参考。

“I was more interested in their judgment and enthusiasm for the business. On Wall street, it's very easy to teach someone the theoretical aspects of finance. It's almost impossible to teach some one good judgment and awareness.

Will he know when to ask for help?

Will she admit when she's made a trading error?

Will he be willing to work his butt off even if the job isn't always intellectually challenging, but still needs to be done?

Will she be able to juggle several tasks at the same time?

Is he interested in the markets, with a desire to learn more?”

希望对有些朋友有用。
