You might not be able to judge a book by its cover, but you can sure tell a lot about a (male) banker from where he works...
Although our researcher is unable to give you a run-down on every financial markets employee, she does have an intimate knowledge of several firms by virtue of the relationships she has enjoyed with members of their staff over the years.
First off, the judging criteria: grooming, personality, net worth, intelligence, ambition, loyalty, honesty, respect and physical attributes.
And here's how the men at Goldman Sachs were rated (out of 10, 10 being the highest mark):
Grooming: 8 - usually pretty good to look at, although beards are in fashion over there these days
Personality: 8 - capable of laughing (but just not at themselves)
Net Worth: 10 - simply Gold man
Intelligence: 8 - just bright enough to be dangerous
Ambition: 10 - total. Grandmothers beware.
Loyalty / honesty: 7 - they genuinely believe everything they say at the time that they say it
Respect: 6 - these guys deserve respect, but find it hard to give others much credit
Physical attributes: 9 - strange how all that money makes those guys appear so attractive
Total points score - 66 (82.5%)
