McKinsey has strict rules that prohibit its consultants from trading stocks or funds related to the companies they advise, according to a source close to the company. The company's partners sign the policies every year. There are 4 consultants and 3 client team members in the project team and the meetings are 1 to 2 on the weekends. Working in consulting firms (as well as other professional services firms) may restrict you from trading stocks, since there is the possibility of using privileged information when you acquire non-public information about that company in your work.
