The Prince of Wall Street (http://www.princeofwallstreet.com) is a regularly updated finance blog featuring original finance news, gossip, trades, and commentary. The commentary predominately focuses on M&A, private equity, hedge funds, and investment banking. Prince of Wall Street also provides some recurring features such as "Wall Street King", "Featured Trade", "Wall Street Book Review", and "Featured Finance Blogger". Now some basic personal information about The Prince. I am a senior at a prestigious college awaiting the start of my first full-time job as an investment banking analyst at a prestigious bulge bracket bank. I did three summer analyst stints at a prestigious bulge-bracket investment bank (Goldman or Morgan Stanley, two firms disclosed to preserve anonymity but also be show off a little) and I signed on to work full-time in the Financial Sponsors Group. He also worked in prime brokerage sales for two summers, and therefore, has what he considers to be a reasonable grasp of hedge fund industry dynamics. It is fitting that The Prince would study Philosophy and Economics as an undergraduate. The Prince also spent a term at University College in Oxford (god save the queen, and The Prince). This blog was started when The Prince realized that he spent way too much time reading finance blogs and newspapers. He hopes to also share some of the humor that goes along with working in banking and give some perspective to prospective investment bankers on what life is really like as an analyst. Even if my readers decide my commentary and analysis are wrong, I hope they at least find it thought provoking. That is all my loyal subjects.
