Hi, I’m Matt, and as you may have heard I’m new at Dealbreaker. For some reason it seemed like a good idea to leave my job at a bank/squid to come blog with Bess in a leaky Noho garret. Two months later, here I am.
Fortunately, I left 200 West too quickly for them to strip the gold plating off my scrotum, and though it’s slightly tarnished from two months of gardening, it still repels some low blows. I have a feeling this will prove useful in the coming weeks.
Okay then. I’ll be here as long as you’ll have me, or until the money runs out, whichever.
Unnecessary disclosure: I am long some currently nontransferable GS shares, and I have small 401(k) investments in a couple of the hedge funds we sometimes write about. Otherwise all mutual funds, cash, canned goods and ammunition.
