Tutor description

Rohit, a good friend of mine who was officially considered to be a genius with an IQ of 150+, graduated from one of the leading IIMs. Rohit managed to make it into the New York Headquarters of the most sought after firm that had arrived on campus for the first time — Lehman Brothers — a top U.S. Investment Bank (then). On joining, he was assigned to Lehman’s mortgage securities desk that dealt with Collateralized Debt obligations (or CDOs). Following is an extracted transcript of a chat session I had with Rohit back in 2004: Me: So man, you must feel like you are on top of the world. Rohit: Yes dude, the job here is amazing, I get to interact with people around the world; investment managers who want to invest millions of dollars Me: Great…so tell me something interesting. What’s your job all about?
