If you start your career at a big investment bank, you’re most likely guaranteed excellent training and exposure to high profile deals, although this will also come hand-in-hand with the expectation that you perform to the levels needed. Below are three investment banks to target for your career. Once they’re on your CV, you are set!
Goldman Sachs –
While still a leading name in finance, the bank’s formidable reputation has come under scrutiny in recent years, as several key income streams have stagnated. Industry monitor Coalition ranked Goldman joint-third in terms of investment banking revenue for the first half of 2017.
J.P. Morgan –
J.P. Morgan has thrived in the years since the financial crisis. The bank reported record group profits in 2016, while net income from the investment banking division nearly doubled year-on-year to $3.4 bn.
Morgan Stanley –
Following a choppy few years, the bank is starting to reap the financial rewards of its restructuring programme. This includes expanding the firm’s wealth management business.
