“You want to bet against the banks?” asked Charlie Geller, a character who went on to make millions betting against the housing market in 2015’s Oscar-nominated film The Big Short. We all know that drama—the least of which was on the big screen—followed the 2008 housing market collapse. But how has post-crisis regulation affected the business of banks? In this talk, Mike Selfridge will tackle the topic of banks in a post-financial crisis world. What does it take for today’s financial analyst to understand the business of banking? What are the subtleties of earnings conference calls? And, for those eager to take their talents to Wall Street, how does one prepare for a career in banking? Mike will share insights gained along the road from USF MBA to First Republic Bank SVP and Chief Banking Officer.
