  1. Thanks Afzal, would love to see more videos from professionals in various different finance roles (there is too much hard-on for classic FO/ ibanking M&A etc)

  2. Great that you've provided a Big 4 perspective Afzal, really interesting to listen to 👏.
    I work in the M&A team at a Big 4 as well and thought Ashley made such a key point about the internal mobility options available.

  3. Hi Afzal, did you work with anyone who went to Essex university at Goldman Sachs, or a university of that calibre? I was considering doing accounting at Essex.

  4. Hello Afzal, Im a student aspiring working in M&A, Im in 3rd year of a business School bachelor and I wanted to know if you know any website where I can pick up some excel financial modeling (DCF, Comps…) exercise for free to prepare for the interviews ? Thanks in advance

  5. Ashley was great, seems very genuine and open. I am grateful for your videos. Not sure if the states have so much activity with corporate banking as well during covid?

  6. Generally quality of people in bi 4 is not as good as BB investment banking. I have met many 2.2 from lower ranked universities there.
