Bogged Down with Financial Speak in Billions? Let Us Help – May 20, 2020

Billions Financial Glossary

by Lady Trader | Fan Fun with Damian Lewis | May 20, 2020

We don’t think it’s essential to be a financial or legal expert to enjoy Billions. It is a show more about characters and their interesting relationships than about the workings of Axe Capital or the US Attorney’s office.

Having said that, we believe we are more likely to enjoy Billions once we understand exactly what’s going on…which brings us to this Billions glossary.

We have seen it mentioned on various social media that some are distracted by the fact they are finding the stock market jargon difficult to follow. Only natural for those of us who do not spend our days talking about longing and shorting and looking out for people ditching stock through back doors at lunch time.

Think of this page as a constant work in progress.

We list terms that we think could be helpful, in alphabetical order, and we will keep adding to it!  If you hear a term (or terms) we haven’t added yet, let us know and we will be on it!

Without further ado:

Hamlet days

I have no idea whether this is true, but it’s a cute story. From Richard Kay’s Mail Online column:

Plummy-toned Old Etonian actor Damian Lewis didn’t seem to care who could hear as he regaled his wife, actress Helen McCrory, and their children Manon and Gulliver on the top deck of a No.  14 bus travelling down Piccadilly.

‘His theatrical projection drowned out the destination announcements,’ says a fellow passenger. ‘I assumed at first it had to be someone on their mobile. I was six rows away yet I could hear his conversation crystal clearly.’

The Band of Brothers star was recalling bumping into the National Theatre actor Paul Freeman. Says my exasperated traveller: ‘Lewis suddenly declaimed: “He was Claudius to my Hamlet.”’ Fancy…
