We are real finance professionals who grew up dirt-poor, broke into elite roles, and now enjoy a top 1% income.
After helping countless students break into investment banking, private equity, venture capital, and asset management roles, we decided we wanted to give back on a larger scale. And that's why we created The Banker's Bible.
You might be wondering:
Why do we use anonymous cartoon avatars?
What's up with the "bow tied" in front of our names?
In Short: The BowTiedJungle is an anonymous group of career professionals who seek to give back and help younger people achieve success across multiple life domains. In our case, we help people break into elite finance roles.
We also offer personalized coaching for exceptional candidates who want to go the extra mile to land the gig. Contact information is provided below. If you are interested, please send a short, clear email explaining your current situation and what you would like help with (we receive a large volume of email, so please keep your message succinct).

He specializes in helping people master their mindset and psychological preparation so they execute at an optimal level (without freezing!) in high-stakes interview settings. He's taken candidates from stuttering, anxious wrecks who mess up the most basic "how does depreciation affect the 3 statements" questions, to rock-solid finance terminators who pass their most demanding interviews with ease.
