Quote from Andrew Beattie
"I always thought finance was made more confusing than it really should be with unnecessary jargon. Then I entered the world of synthetic products and realized that you have to make up some words when the product itself is a derivative of a derivative based on a concept proposed by salesmen and backed by a theoretical model proposed by a quant with no skin in the game. High finance gets messy, but writing on basic finance can be clear, clean, and honest."
