Twelve months of a NY banker’s income and spending

by Nomen_Meum

Diagram created using SankeyMATIC. Data from my pay stubs and bank transaction dumps.

Couple notes:

  • I worked as an investment banker in New York for about eleven of the last twelve months.
  • I’ve lived with my partner for about half a year, and the majority of “Venmo (Inflow)” is their portion of our shared expenses.
  • Spending categories (“shopping”, etc.) provided by my bank.

Edit: because everyone’s commenting on it… yes I know I should’ve been putting more into my 401k. Went a couple points above what my employer matched, and prioritized brokerage to save for a downpayment.
