Who Said It?

So, to all my naysayers out there, I say screw you! Yup, you heard me. I don’t have to be polite anymore—I’m not trying to get investors, I’m not trying to gain credibility. Everybody—and I mean everybody—in finance makes mistakes, but I seem to be the only one who celebrates them, detailing them thoroughly because they hold the keys to understanding the market.
Awwww yeah, it feels damn good to let it all out! How many of you industry insiders are insanely jealous right now? Sorry, but if you’re not willing to provide the exact details and thought processes behind all your investments, you don’t deserve to speak about them because you’re holding people should be ashamed for you are cowards and frauds. It’s people like you that have made this industry so poorly understood and lacking in societal respect.
That’s right, no more Mr. Nice [redacted]—it’s disgusting that finance, our true national sport, gets such little love and respect. It’s all due to the arrogant, slimy and secretive ways of Wall Street that keeps some people wealthy and most people poor and uneducated.
This industry needs to change and [redacted] will see to that.


Who Said It?

"Each of us does and says things at one point or another in our lives we regret," [redacted] told TheWrap. "The costume I wore to the fundraiser [in which I appeared in blackface] was one such thing for me." 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."
