Vice: The Ex-Banker on Cocaine Binges & £600k Bonuses | Informer

November 14, 2020

“It’s an industry that rewards psychopaths.” As the global economy is potentially looking at a deep recession due to COVID-19 just after recovering from the 2008 financial crash, we hear from an ex-banker who worked in the City of London’s Square Mile from the mid-90s to 2008. He lifts the veil on the sordid world of investment banking where he enjoyed thousand-pound meals, sex parties with colleagues and £600k bonuses for “pushing around bits of paper”. He believes psychopaths in suits gamed the system while damaging society in the process. Informer is a series where we hear the anonymised confessions and insights of people in positions of power on the inside of important institutions.
