#WheninFinance On Mashable & Quartz

The only thing #WIFs like more than money is getting their egos stroked, so we were pretty happy to be featured in Quartz’ article of The Year In Finance As Expressed Through Hashtags

Mashable featured the article as well.

Then it trended on Twitter.

Thanks to Simone Fox, Mashable, and Quartz for putting us in the same class as #BernankeGifts and #FedValentines.

And thanks to all you #WIFs for sharing your gifs, stories, tweets, and pictures with us in 2012—whether by tagging them with #wheninfinance on Twitter and Instagram, or by emailing us.

We hope to do some fun new things with you all in the new year. 

Now, countdown to bonus season.

Your Friends,

A #WIF Christmas Jingle: Bonus Claus Is Coming To Town

We got this #wheninfinance Christmas jingle in our inbox over the weekend with a note that read: “Now as you read this, just imagine the most senior MDs singing loud and clear whilst glaring towards the analysts around the room. Don’t know how that makes me feel.”




You better not sleep

You better not try

Just bust your ass

We’re telling you why

Bonus Claus is coming to town


He’s making a list

He’s checking it close

Gonna find out who’s hot and who’s toast

Bonus Claus is coming to town


He sees you when you’re resting

He knows when you’re awake

He knows if you’re at your desk

So show up, for appearance sake!


Oh’ pound on Excel

Make spreadsheets fly

Better go fast

We’re telling you why

Or Bonus Grinch is coming to town
