The ibanker and the Golden Cage

When Alex Shiraz, an average and broke economics student in London, charms his way into a coveted job at the most prestigious investment bank in the world, suddenly everything is at his fingertips – jumping on a plane at a moment’s notice, the most exclusive clubs and parties and beautiful people at every turn. As he hustles his way up the ladder, drifting away from his girlfriend and befriending a crew of ambitious upstarts, his enigmatic boss is charged with saving the trillion-dollar bank from collapse as the 2008 global financial crisis looms – and it’s up to Alex to do the billion-dollar deal that will save them all. Can he rise to the occasion? Does he have what it takes to seal the deal (in more ways than one)? With humor, candor and plenty of surprising turns, The Ibanker and the Golden Cage takes us on an epic journey into the heart of international finance as the entire industry threatens to crumble. Part-gripping tale of one man’s quest to achieve glory – and millions – in the financial capital of the world, part-insider’s look at the high-stakes world of investment banking, The Ibanker and the Golden Cage is as addictive and seductive as the world of finance itself.
