Lotta Snickare and Øystein Gullvåg Holter study men who work in investment banking, describing their everyday lives at work and the choices they have made and are prepared to make in order to manage their overall life situation.

The stories are interpreted as gendered narratives, showing how the connotations of the finance industry help them to construe a self-narrative as embodying a masculine ideal.
