Here is a list of the top 5 must-watch movies for finance professionals:

Boiler Room:

The Boiler room is a must-watch for everyone who is planning to try their luck in the stock market. The film deals with the protagonist’s wit, intelligence, and good stock brokering skills that get him a good position and respect in life but soon due to his greed and unlawful tactics he is on the FBI’s wanted list.

Wall Street:

Perhaps the finest movie ever to be made on the finance industry, the movie follows the story of a young man who has just started as a stockbroker and starts learning the ropes of the stock market. By watching this movie, viewers can learn the basic functionality of a stock market.

Rogue Trader:

The movie is about an investment banker and how the oldest bank of Britain goes bankrupt because of him. The lesson learned is that no single person can be given the responsibility of making a business successful and that companies must have a logical and disciplined investment plan to avoid losses.

The Wolf of Wall Street:

This list can never be complete without mentioning one of Leonardo Di Caprio’s best works to date. The Wolf of Wall Street is a comedy movie but shows the shrewdness and unethical ways in which the protagonist makes his way to the top and is eventually caught.

There are business lessons to be learned like loyalty and trust between the boss and his employees, something which is very important in the corporate world. The movie is a laugh riot with some very powerful performances.
