SMASHING the finance patriarchy with memes : Here then, is the The Influencer' who wants to demystify investment culture for millennials

Haley Sacks, 28, doesn't just want students to save; she wants them to invest. Not only that : She wants them to understand the culture of investment banking.

To teach them, she posts memes on Instagram. Her account @Mrs-Dow.Jones, has compared  Deutsche Bank's trajectory since 2007 to Rob Kardashian; likened the hype ahead of the Uber I.P.O. to that surrounding the newest royal baby; and used Andy Cohen as a proxy for interest rates.

Much like The Skimm, a newsletter and media brand that breaks down the day's top headlines for a predominantly young, female audience -

Ms. Sacks sees pop culture reference points as a way to make stocks and bonds intelligible to a new generation of potential investors, particularly those often excluded from the language of finance.

Finance memes are still niche on Instagram; @MrsDowJones has yet to break 100,000 followers, but along with accounts like @Liquidity and @finance_god, it's helping define the ''finfluencer'' [that's financial influencer] category.

Most of these accounts are anonymous, and according to Institutional Investor magazine, many of them are run by people who work in the business.

For them, memes are a way to commiserate with fellow bankers. especially those contending with  the long hours of summer internships and first-year analyst positions.

Ms. Sacks, on the other hand, has never worked in finance. In fact, despite growing up in an environment where she might have learned, until two years ago, she couldn't even distinguish between some common types of retirement accounts.

She grew up on the Upper East Side of Manhattan; her father worked at Goldman Sachs.

But wealth management, as she saw it, was the domain of men. ''I've always been creative and had a big sense of humour,'' she said in a recent phone interview, ''and those aren't qualities you think of when you think of an ideal worker at an investment bank.''

After graduating from Wesleyan in 2013, Ms. Sacks worked as a page for the ''Late Show,'' worked the front desk at the fitness studio SLT and as a nanny. She was living month to month with nearly no saving.

Then, in 2017, she was accepted to a residency at Above Average Productions, the digital content  arm of Lorne Michaels's production company. The job would pay her an annual salary of $43,000 plus benefits, like a retirement account.

All of a sudden, Ms. Sacks said, ''I was being faced with a financial decisions of a full-time employee, ''like how much federal income tax she'd like to have withheld from her paycheck and whether she would be interested in putting some of her money in growth account.

''I didn't know the answer to any of the questions,'' she said. ''So I went home and did what any  self-respecting millennials did : ''I went on YouTube.''

Ms. Sachs wanted to learn about wealth creation, but ''the only videos that were available to me to learn about these subjects were these 12-minute long, unedited disasters of men with no charisma and no point of view,'' she said.

''They were literally writings on white boards with their back to the camera. It was so bad and so boring. And it was all men.''

All the women were giving personal financial advice, and  the Wall Street Lingo was left to the guys,'' she said. ''The girls were the ones telling you to buy a crockpot and itemize your checks.''

Six months after joining Above Average, she said, Ms. Sacks was laid off. At that point, she also had a baseline understanding of investments, thanks to Google.

She decided to create a digital brand of her own based on her research, which she thought could be a more stable source of income than the patchwork of jobs she'd had in early 20s.

The students of the world have to figure and understand that, God forbid, if the years ahead turn  chaotic and difficult, we have to somehow endure, perhaps our luck will hold and the world will muddle through.

But luck is a slender hope on which to build prosperity and peace and happiness.
