More: Chuck Norris does not go bankrupt. Chuck Norris ruptures banks.

Source of hedge fund survivorship bias?: Funds that pay Chuck Norris 2 and 20 survive; others don’t.

Private equity: Chuck Norris does not believe in leverage. Chuck Norris believes in crowbars.

Investment banking: No-one defers Chuck Norris’s compensation.
