The Author – Adam Schmid

Adam Schmid is the pen name of a duo of Swiss bankers who live in Zurich, Switzerland – who over 20 years have vested various positions across a wide spectrum of the financial industry.

The name Adam Schmid was inspired by the father of modern economics Adam Smith, whose works like The Wealth of Nations spark entanglements between classical and neoclassical economists.

The Bankey was created out of an era of financial turmoil, with the dot.com crisis at the turn of the last century followed by the credit crunch in 2007. Interestingly within this period of volatility and uncertainty there have been remarkable moments of frolic and amusement that are worth revealing.
