Goldman Sachs Jumps On The Motif Investing Bandwagon

The House of Blankfein was not going to get shown up by the likes of Sallie Krawcheck and Arthur Levitt, even if Motif’s business model is to be “an online evolution of investment clubs” that “allows investors to buy a bucket of stocks centered on a theme, like healthy food, inflation or even rebuilding after Hurricane Sandy.” Read more »

Get yourself canned once or twice so potential employers can tell you’re serious about your work. Read more »

As we mentioned a while back, part of my training as a new Dealbreaker editor involves getting a CFA charter so that I can use past returns to guarantee future results. To that end, I’ve signed up for the December Level I exam. Thanks for all of your helpful advice on studying, by the way – I didn’t get to read all of them, but I’ll just go ahead and assume that the overall gist was “read every hundredth page of the books, guess C when in doubt, and drink heavily before, during and after the exam.”

Nonetheless I did get the books last week, so I opened them up to see what I’m getting myself into. Study Session 1 is ethics. Coming from a job on Wall Street, this was all new to me.

The policy bans associates who leave from soliciting the firm’s clients for eight months, starting with a two-month garden leave. The term refers to workers who are ordered to stay home after they give notice, leaving them little to do other than gardening. “Contrary to press and recruiter speculation, there are no changes coming from Merrill Lynch Financial Advisors on any type of garden leave,” Krawcheck wrote in a Feb. 25 memo, according to the people, who asked not to be identified because the matter isn’t public. “Please put that one in the circular file.” [Bloomberg]

John Carney says yes. Charlie Gasparino says no, the story was planted by Bob McCann, this broad isn’t going anywhere, and if she wants to put an end to it, she should send McCann a message via horse head that she’s not to be messed with. CG’s knows where she can procure one, if there’s interest.
