merchant banker

Definitions

Accounting

Slang

  • noun a contemptible person, a wanker. This rhyming slang, coined in the late 1980s like its synonym ‘Kuwaiti tanker’, highlights a contemporary concern (in this case the spectacular mid-1980s developments in the financial centres of the City of London) to revitalise a familiar epithet.
