"How was your day?" is a dull question at the best of times. 

Aimed at a mate who works in the world of finance, it gains a whole new level of tedium.

To help you decipher this cryptic nonsense, we've turned to Sky Atlantic’s Billions (now available on Sky Box Sets) for some pointers on the top ten financial buzzwords.
