Mod Note (Andy): Bumped this back up from winter 2010 and it is still useful, but even more companies and banks are listed in the WSO Company Database (with e-mail formats)

If you're still on the internship hunt, no worries - lots of boutique investment banks wait to do their hiring until the Spring. Check-out the list of banks that I put together for potential leads and a Q&A video below.

Original Post:

I recently joined the WSO team in September to run Wall Street Mentors, and our goal is to provide the members of WSO the ability to receive personalized job search help, mentoring, interview prep from professionals that have 10+ years at top finance firms (Goldman Sachs, Bain Capital, Morgan Stanley, McKinsey, etc.).

Since joining, I've been working on compiling a comprehensive list of investment banks to help WSO members that are trying to identify the right investment banks and/or aggressively network. I started with a list of ~1,200 banks exported from CapitalIQ, and I whittled it down to what I thought seemed to be the top 200.

I've segmented the list into three categories:

1) Large, International Investment Banks - 10 Banks
2) Large, Mid-sized, and Prestigious Boutique Investment Banks - 40 Banks
3) Boutique Investment Banks - 150 Banks

For groups 1&2, I simply provide a link to the bank's career website. Perhaps the most valuable part of this list is the information I provided for group 3. For this group, I went onto the website of each bank and tried to gather as much information as possible:

Website
Office Locations
Senior Member at the Firm
Email address
Phone # (many of them are direct dials so be ready if you call!)

If you are seeking to expand your job search to regional boutiques, this list is a great place to start the process.

It was no small task going through this list, so I'm sure that there's plenty of room for improvement. Please let me know if I missed any banks, included outdated information, etc. I'd love input to improve this list.

If you want some help from an experienced investment banking professional, you should check out Wall Street Mentors. Feel free to email me at [email protected] with any feedback on this list or requests for help with your job search.

Also, if you want to see the banks in your location, you can simply use the "search function" and type in your city's name while still on this forum.

Hope this list helps.

    That's brilliantly comprehensive and effort-intensive of you, thanks so much.

    Cool to find info for SIG. I'm from that area and wanted to know more about them, thanks for the insider info. :)

    Most people do things to add days to their life. I do things to add life to my days.

  • econ's picture

    Wow! Thanks a lot!

  • RKBanker's picture

    This is great. I don't mean to sound ungrateful, but would you be able to compile a list of s&t firms. I think we all know the BB S&T firms, but what about the smaller ones.

  • Wall Street Mentors's picture

    Glad you guys find it helpful.

    RKBanker,

    I can do put a S&T list on my "to-do" list. I was going to tackle a list of Private Equity firms next, but I can try get to S&T soon.

  • eyelikecheese's picture

    Wow. That is very impressive and I commend your efforts. Especially for making it public and free. That is some valuable information

  • Chris_Marlin's picture

    yeah this is really great stuff.. wish i had this list available last year when i was looking!

  • George87's picture

    This is a great effort, excellent job! Much appreciated. Also would've liked to have this when I was still looking, especially the mid-sized list.

    This is a great effort and I agree that if time affords you many of us would be forever grateful for a S&T list.

    +1000 thanks for the post. I too would be very grateful for a S&T list.

  • Mzz's picture

    SB for you. Good job on this.

  • Frieds's picture

    WSM,

    This is an easy thing to say, but if I could, I would give you at least 3-4 SB for this, but I can't, so I'll at least give a +1. I think this will help out alot of the prospective monkeys in their quest for a job.

  • Nouveau Richie's picture

    Chris, awesome job! I just bookmarked this list and will definitely use it for my search. +1 SB.

    <a href=http://www.wallstreetoasis.com/wall-street-mentors-finance-mock-interviews rel=nofollow>Wall Street Mentors</a>:

    It was no small task going through this list, so I'm sure that there's plenty of room for improvement. Please let me know if I missed any banks, included outdated information, etc. I'd love input to improve this list.

    Found one well known firm missing from the list: Qatalyst Partners

  • Kools's picture
  • Wall Street Mentors's picture

    Thanks for the feedback from everyone - great to hear that this will be helpful.

    I'll get started on the S&T list shortly. I'm not as familiar with that industry, so recommendations for sites to pull data from (other than WSO) would be really helpful.

    I added HSBC and Qatalyst Partners to the list and I realized that I forgot TD Securities. I'm sure I missed at least a dozen or so others, so please let me know if you notice that a bank is missing.

    Thanks again,

    Chris

  • Inept Speculator's picture

    Great stuff. Thank you very much wsm. Could you also do a list on VC's? Cheers

  • mike55555's picture

    Very impressive. How did you go about getting all of those direct numbers to managing directors? This must have been very labor intensive.

  • MrLove's picture
  • Ryu Banker's picture

    This must have taken a long time to compile. I am sure it will be of help to us monkeys trying to break into banking. Thanks for the awesome list!

  • maverik's picture

    This is awesome. Thank you!!

  • DesertBanker's picture

    Any opinion on the shops that only engage in deal sourcing ?
    Any value/ decent exit opportunity (besides back to school) from working for a company like this?

  • kbluearmor7's picture

    Nice list. You can also add Loop Capital Markets on the #3 Boutiques, which you missed.

  • Kanon's picture

    Nice list! Thanks for sharing this. I'm looking forward to the PE one.

    One to add to the banking list is is Foros Group.
    There's also one firm that posts jobs on WSO on occasion - Mooreland Partners

  • JulianRobertson's picture

    This is excellent. Much appreciated. Will bookmark and grind it out over the weekend.

  • ewlang's picture

    How would you go about trying to find an email? I want to get an email for some in the Philadelphia branch of Alvares & Marsal but am having a hard time.

  • NestoGrande's picture

    What are people's thoughts on contacting the partners listed?

    I don't mind trying to reach out, but are there inboxes going to get flooded now that their contact info is posted somewhere?

    not to be a dick but if there are more qualified candidates coming from top schools than there are positions... why should companies consider people with no proven track record, come from non target schools and are most likely from an unrelated field/major with irrelevant experience?

    Because when your job is to beat the markets and not think the way everyone else does it might be beneficial to have a unique life experience that might not fit the traditional banker mold? Just at a guess.

  • commodity Bull's picture

    Great work on generating this list and fantastic interview. SB for you.

  • ikicker's picture

    Aren't a lot of these people going to get very frustrated when tons of people start contacting them? Especially the people towards the top of the list?

    That said, I really appreciate you posting these video interviews... they are extremely helpful and so is the concept of building a custom list.

  • IbankerWannabe's picture

    I wish there were someone who could do the same for Canadian Banks!

  • Ricqles's picture

    not too sure about your placements of banks but good job!

  • KeyboardCrab's picture

    Chris great list! One point to correct even though they are a very small shop and very rarely take on any new analysts / associates the area code for The Capital Corporation is "864" not 846 wanted your contact info to be accurate.

    -An opportunity not taken is an opportunity lost.

  • theparadox's picture

    I'm sorry if this sounds like a silly question, but almost all of the banks in the third category are unfamiliar to me. When I do contact them by email, is there an ideal way to mention how I found out about their bank?

  • happypantsmcgee's picture

    Just tell them you found it online or heard of their 'great reputation' come on dude...

  • theparadox's picture

    Okay, I just wanted to make sure it's okay to say that. Especially since I've heard boutiques pay more attention to cover letters. Thanks!

  • K3's picture

    This is incredible!

  • K3's picture

    I can't even get my mind around the time taken to put this together.

    Too bad you don't have contacts for the BBs

    Because hiring managers are smart enough to realize that where you went to school is a highly imprecise, noisy signal of your actual talent and intellect. There are plenty of kids coming from non-targets who will run intellectual circles around target kids. For example, most target kids probably couldn't succeed in a Math PhD program, although plenty of non-targets do it every single year. Potential is a complicated thing...
