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.
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.
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:
Senior Member at the Firm
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 Please let me know if I missed any banks, included outdated information, etc.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.

My review of online dating sites If you are a single straight guy living in NYC, you would be doing yourself a great disservice by abstaining from online dating.

"Wife Bonuses" - Allowances of the Upper East SideA New York Times writer put together an article on the wives of rich and powerful men in the upper east side. There's a lot of absurdity in the "national geographic" way the writer describes their lives and an obvious liberal, feminist tilt given the publication, but there is a...
