Greener pastures.

The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Why else would you suffer through investment banking?

This ancient post from Leveraged Sellout sums up how most bankers used to think about exit opportunities:

“Before I became so fervent about Private Equity, I thoroughly considered all my other career options: hedge funds and VC.”

But that’s not quite true anymore: corporate exits are looking better and better… tech startups are hot… and even putting aside those recent trends, the author forgot about growth equity.

Which is a shame – because if you can’t decide between traditional private equity and venture capital / tech startups, it might be right up your alley.

In this article, you’ll learn what growth equity funds do, what to expect in case studies, and you’ll get a full growth equity case study with a video tutorial, 18-page solution, and Excel file.

How to Succeed On the Job in Investment Banking: Are You a STARR or a TWAT?

4 Comments | Investment Banking - Lingo, Culture & Staying Alive

Investment Banking on the Job Success“That new analyst we just hired will definitely be a STARR.”

“But that one from last year is turning out to be a TWAT so far.”

I looked at my 2 banker friends in confusion.

“Um… what are you talking about? I’m assuming those are acronyms?”

They looked at me like I was crazy.

I explained that I had already left the industry, so I was no longer up on all their jargon.

But my one friend didn’t accept that as an excuse.

He replied, “The easiest way to predict someone’s success on the job is to figure out whether he/she is a STARR or a TWAT early on.”

Hook, line, and sinker… now they had me.

“OK,” I said, “Stop building this up and just give me the full explanation.”
