Most of the time Jim Reid is busy being an oft-quoted credit strategist at Deutsche Bank, but since last summer he's been getting serious about learning another skill: the piano. Business Insider has discovered a video of the respected analyst shining bright as he plays (and sings!) a Rihanna classic. "Is everyone ready for Rihanna? I know I am," he deadpans before launching into a rendition of the 2012 hit "Diamonds."
Amazingly, Reid only started learning the piano last summer and you can tell he's got a sense of humor about it all. Watch "Diamonds" below and keep an eye out for Reid's awesome head-whip at the end.
It's been an adventurous year-or-so for Reid. He dabbled in paragliding for the first time, rode 100 miles on a bike, and just four months after he started tickling the ivories, performed a min-recital in Amsterdam. He played The Beatles' "Let It Be" along with an original composition:
