Ryan Makis

“A pitcher in baseball (a true pitcher, not just someone who can throw 95 mph) is one of the most interesting athletes in all of sports. He is analytical—he studies his opponents’ weaknesses before he takes the mound. He is meticulous—he knows that the slightest amount of pressure from the tip of his finger can be the difference between a strikeout and a home run. He is creative—he finds a way to close out an inning when the bases are loaded. He is a team player—he recognizes that without a reliable catcher and his other teammates behind him, success is unattainable.

I believe that an effective investment banker must share many of the same qualities.”
