Sometimes this place makes you forget yourself, you know?


Sara: So we've had very good reports about you.
Gus: From who? I wasn't given a mentor, every time I was proactive I was shut down, the desk politics meant that I was effectively invisible.

Yasmin: You obviously don't want me to say anything.
Hilary: You always have a choice. But are you a team player, Yasmin? Because I like to hire team players.

I need you to know that none of that worked on me. I see you. I know what you are. I don't want to be a babysitter; I don't want to be a carer. I don't want to be a mother, especially to you. You don't have a future on my desk because you've never displayed that you have any value. To me, you're worthless.


I knew Kaspar intimately. He didn't know the first thing about me, but he needed me. Twenty-year relationship. I was who he wanted me to be. Just tell them what they need to hear to survive the day. Make yourself big in your life, Rob. They'll fall in love with you.


Sara: You know over a thousand banks have failed in the last ten years, about a dozen were created? We have answered too big to fail by making bigger banks.
Harper: Nothing's changed.
Sara: Nothing. But it can. Some people are trying to change it. Daria's one of them, but the only agency we have in a stagnant system is the single choices that we make and the cumulative effect of making the correct ones more often than not. I'm not just offering you a job. Forget my targets. This is more important than that. I am giving you an opportunity to change the culture. I will believe anything you tell me now, okay? It's up to you. But remember, the choice is between the invisible man and the visible woman. Between people like Eric or people like Daria.

Robert: So, have you ever thought about getting help?
Clement: Yeah, I've been at those meetings. There's this one guy I remember -- smart lad -- kept telling me to replace the alibis of exceptionality that masqueraded as self-knowledge. With what? The polyester clichés of recovery? Fuck that.

Any success I might have doesn't have to come at a cost to you.


Harper: You know that I deserve to be here.
Daria: Harper, please just try and get some sleep tonight. But I wouldn't be your friend and your boss if I didn't tell you that I'm not convinced this environment mixes well with whatever it is you're going through.

While my baseline was fulfilling the needs of the desk, I also stood out on my own. I formulated over two dozen bespoke macro trading strategies across a number of instruments, vanilla cash equities to exotic derivatives, leveraging at all points our different silos on the floor, and cross-selling products at every opportunity. I can say confidently that by sales credits I'm the standout grad in front of you today, and I want to prove that this track record of producing at the highest level isn't a one-time thing. I have carried the culture of the firm, led us with integrity, and thought like an owner. It's in my blood. I'm a Pierpoint person.


Kenny: What do you reckon happened to Eric? Aren't you pally with the girl on his desk?
Yasmin: I don't know. I don't think she does either.
Kenny: I've heard four different stories, so it has to be something political.
Yasmin: Well, I mean, we all know how he behaved on the floor.
Kenny: Yas, that's the business. You don't get fired for that if he got fired at all.

Harper: Why do you like him? Is it ’cause he was born rich, and you like, what, look up to that? Are you sure that he even likes you?
Robert: I think he likes me more than you do at the moment.
