JPM Top Exec Mary Erdoes: "There''s A Reason" Junior Bankers Must Work 72 Hour Weeks As debate continues to rage about what the "appropriate" amount of work is for junior investment bankers, Mary Erdoes, chief executive officer of JPMorgan Chase & Co.s asset and wealth management business is weighing in with an opinion that the snowflakes complaining about their workload might not like. Erdoes says that "there''s a reason" that junior bankers are forced to work 12 hour days, six days a week, according to Bloomberg. She says the hours will "help them master the job in two to three years" instead of the five years it would otherwise take. If you think 10,000 hours is about what you need to master any subject, if someone comes in and has a regular, eight-hour-a-day job, five days a week, its gonna take about five years to have a base-level mastery, she told David Rubenstein on Bloomberg Wealth. She continued: On Wall Street, its more like 12 hours a day, six days a week. That cuts you down to about two and a half years before you become mastered in something. She also told the story of starting in the industry by balancing her grandmother''s checkbook at the age of 6, earning a few of "a few dollars a month". 2,200 new analysts will be starting training with JP Morgan this summer.

Summary List Placement Thirty-three percent of US institutional investors held digital assets as of April, up from 27% in March 2020, per a Fidelity Digital Assets survey of 408 US respondents. Digital assets cover cryptocurrencies, crypto assets, virtual currencies, and crypto tokens. This tracks with a prediction Insider Intelligence made coming into 2021: that four in 10 US institutional investors would have some portfolio exposure to digital assets by the end of the year. With many months to go before the end of the year, we may very well reach this threshold, especially since 69% of respondents said they plan to add digital assets in the near future. What is driving this adoption? Survey respondents pointed to digital assets'' high potential upside and lack of correlation with other asset classes as key reasons to invest. Meeting this demand presents significant growth opportunities, as seen with crypto asset managers Grayscale''s and Coinbase''s surging institutional AUM. Financial institutions also want a piece of the action and have added crypto services in recent months, including Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, and even JPMorgan despite its CEO repeatedly criticizing the asset class.
