Dresdner's speed dating strategy


These days it's no fun being an analyst, what with all the sniping at your reputation. Imagine if, on top of that, you're struggling to find a date.

Take Albert Edwards of Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein's global investment strategy team. Last month he produced a report called It's tough on The Street in which, amid professional discourse, he describes his experiences of meeting the opposite sex.

Edwards explains that a friend dragged him into it but he managed to enjoy the evening. "To be honest, it went better than I expected," he writes. "After four bottles of Becks, everyone seemed very nice and we were all there to have fun anyway."
