Hey mate, happy to lend some thoughts. In terms of IB, GS and UBS are the only two established BB's in NZ and take on the majority of deal flow. They have the advantage that they can tap the resources of the respective Australian offices (GS, UBS are somewhat highly ranked in Aus).

Macquarie and Jarden are probably the tier below, having similar resources, but less market share. Below that are Forsyth Barr and Craigs, who are both NZ firms that fight for deals, but lack the resources and balance sheet of a global bank.

The big four have a large presence in NZ, and it feels like Deloitte and PWC have the edge over EY and KPMG in terms of corp fin. Many analysts start their careers at the big four, before lateralling to IB seats (each IB firm runs lean with only 13-14 staff and maybe 3-4 analysts).

Hope that helps.
