And finally…Bankers most likely to cheat –in love
Website, IllicitEncounters.com, which specialises in extra-marital dating, asked users their professions, creating a database of which a massive 18 per cent said they work in financial services.
The next highest was management & HR with 12 per cent.
Spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com Claire Page said: “Those working in the banking sector make the perfect affair candidates. They already know how to keep a secret and the financial security means they can afford the luxury of having an affair.
“Fraudulent and irresponsible activity has been the trademark of bankers in recent years, with the economic crisis and Libor scandal, so taking this into their personal lives comes as no real surprise. Bankers are not one to miss out on an opportunity!”
Ms Page noted that bankers seem to be able to compartmentalise their private and professional life.
A banker who is only named as “John” who uses the Illicit site, said: “The banking industry is very fast paced and stress levels can be sky high when dealing with such a vast amount of money on a daily basis.
“It is an aggressive environment and the only way I seem to be able to relieve the tension is by sleeping with a string of women that are not my wife.
“When I’m going on a date after work I still feel cocky and ballsy with an answer for everything, but when I go home and see my wife I’m relaxed and can be the loving and attentive husband she needs me to be,” he said.
