Drain Bamaged-Fixed Income
Does anyone else end up feeling like you have a learning disability every time you have to communicate with your fixed income guys? I always felt like I had just gotten a wedgie and then been stuffed in my locker whenever I had a question with the AGE fixed income guys. RJ is a lot better, but it still feels like they keep a big whiteboard with "stupid retail guys question of the day" on the wall. Where's the love?
Haha. Nobody understands bonds. After the last year, fewer pretend. I love BND, TIP, AGG, etc.
Opposite situation. I had a client interested in a non rated bond the other day. Trader took about 5 minutes on the phone to explain the particulars. Then sent me a 148 page PDF to back it up.I bought 150 of the bonds. Nice work on the bond desk!
Very cool move by your bond guy, BondGuy! 'Course, you probably speak their language better than most of us.
I seriously can't believe that you guys are finance "professionals", no offense.
