    Area Financial Services Employees Putting The Finishing Touches On Their Burning Man Costumes

    Though money’s not allowed when you get to Burning Man, there aren’t any rules about how much change you drop before you head to the playa.

    Hopefully you answered James Montgomery, CEO of boutique investment bank Montgomery & Co, as that was the answer we were looking for. Montgomery, whose costume also featured African tribal wear and a stuffed gorilla and was captured on a video released today, continued:

    “While I can understand that some people may have read something other than what was intended into my wearing that costume to a costume party [at the annual fundraising event for St. Matthew’s Parish School], as anyone who knows me would attest, that is not consistent with my beliefs nor is it with who I am,” Montgomery added. “I am sick about the false impression it gave. All I can do now is to do what I did then and apologize for any offense I may have caused.”

    Meredith Whitney Dressed Up As Paris Hilton For The Company Halloween Party This Afternoon

    First, though, a story. One of the common refrains you hear from the critics of Wall Street is that financial services employees don’t build anything or make anything. To them, it means you don’t do anything for society. We know that’s not true but because one can’t reach out and touch your product, they like […]

    Real Housewives Of Hedge Funds Inching Closer To Reality?!

    We’ve long been of the opinion that what the Real Housewives series could really use is a hedge fund edition.
