Corporate and Institutional banking - clients with turnover in excess of US$500m - all the large conglomerates like Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy, Constellation Brands, Diageo etc....in originations team (involving M&A, CF advisory, acquisition financing, etc). But then I am well known for my fashion and clothing expertise. I spent many years in stockbroking also as an equities analyst. My job will NOT dictate to me what I should wear. Ever.
It would be hell if I had to dress like other bankers/brokers: boring white shirts, boring blue shirts, boring striped ties, broing suits, chinos/polos on casual Fridays. Ew. Never!
