Gek

Much of the chat on this board is directed at salary and making cash. Fair enough. The usual way of thinking to get high salary is this:

- Front office IB

- Partner at consultancy firm

- Partner at accountancy firm

- Start your own b'ness.

All these are understandable, given the scope of the forum, but I was wondering if anyone has other ideas/plans, especially for those coming from a consultancy/ finance background as many people here, including myself, do?

Cynic to mac (#5)

Knock together some crappy auction website over the weekend, fill it with management buzzwords and then sell it to some greedy venture capitalists for £300M.

Oh wait, that was 1999. Not sure if it would still work. Might do?

More seriously, how about using your finance skills in an emerging market? eg UAE, India ?

Insurance broking = sales + admin and average salary unless a name at Lloyds. Then, if you're lucky it can go extremely well.

Otherwise a line job as a broker - not much cop.

Hang upside down in magnetic boots, or sit in a glass box for a bit.

Actually, don't - you'll get rich but everyone will think you're an idiot.
