Does anyone here actually understand what the "bulge bracket" is?

Usually posts this dumb are trolls, but sadly I feel this isn't the case here.

Perhaps OP believes BB is an acronym for "badass bank."

Not fully related, but thoughts on RBS as a BB? I've always considered them in the mix (albeit lower tier).

They are in the sense that they are high up on certain underwriting tables. But they aren't in the traditional sense, at least not in the states. If you included them as a bulge-bracket firm in a discussion (in the US), you'd find plenty of disagreement, if only because they're low on M&A tables, are hemorrhaging money/staff, and are having most of their securities business wound down by the British government.

^wtf- monkey shit for that? really?

It was uncalled for, agreed.

Well all BB banks raise capital, so EVR/LAZ are out because they run with a different business model. BMO, RBC, Wells maybe....

Learn what BB means.

Lazard is hands down better than UBS. But jrt336 is right... EVR/LAZ are not BB since they are not universal banks.
