Nomura sponsors for the US (know an international student who got placed there and also had an interview invite me). 

Again, for the US, EBs sponsor as well. 

Out of curiosity, which banks sponsor for the UK?

RBC: Yes

TD: Officially Yes; I don't know any

CS: Officially Yes; but don't know any

DB: Yes

MM / Boutiques:

This list is no longer accurate. The following banks have changed their policies a year or two ago:


MS: No for IBD

Citi: case by case

BofA: Yes 


TD: case by case

CS: Yes

Houlihan: case by case

Bruh half of your list is wrong. Most of the firms change their policies year by year that's why this post is necessary every year. Stop blaming international kids when you don't know the struggle we go through

TD sponsors, can confirm. So do most of the BBs except Barclays and JPM. All of the EBs sponsor except Greenhill and Lazard, which only takes kids with STEM OPT. Don't know much about MMs

They would probably just have you come over on a L-1 visa (no literally and a lot easier to get). The downside is that the L-1 visa is directly tied to your employer and you can't switch companies on the L-1.

I'm at a target, and this is what it looks like for my school. I tried to write every firm I can remember, so I mixed some buy-side and non-IBD.

Definitely Sponsor: GS, BAML, CS, DB, EVR, PJT, MoCo, HL (RX yes, M&A only if you have STEM-OPT), SocGen, Nomura, MTS Partners, Financo, Raine, BX, KKR, Pimco, Temasek, D.E.Shaw, Vista, Sanford Bernstein (AB's sell-side arm), Bridgewater, Liontree, Bain Cap (only PE), Two Sigma, Citadel, Jane Street, Qatalyst, P72,Dodge & Cox, WB

Not sure (include firms saying they do, but really don't): MS, Citi, JEF, LAZ, PWP, RBC, Greenhill, Union Square Advisor, Ducera, Centerview (used to, but did not last year), TD, CIBC, Scotia, Macquarie (used to, but did not last year), Piper Sandler (heard they haven't but said they would take this semester), Oak Hill, Cowen

Definite No: JPM, Barclays, UBS, PJ Solomon, Rothschild, Ares, Credit Agricole, Gugg, Wellington Management, Roark, FT Partners, WF, BMO, Raymond James, Stifel, Miller Buckfire, MUFG, Keybanc, Oppenheimer, BNP Paribas, HSBC

Jefferies really sponsors. Have seen probably the most no. of international students there on a per capita basis. Know an international student in each of their US offices.

Ares can sponsor (case by case)

Citi NY, RBC NY does, Greenhill NY, Jefferies NY all sponsor

This is all for this year, 2022 SA

Yeah Piper Sandler is complicated. They might sponsor, but have a friend who SA'ed there last year and received FT offer, but later HR called him to let him know they aren't sponsoring. Afterwards he reached out to an MD, who took care of his sponsorship issue, so don't know what's really up with them.

1. does MS sponsor for IBD in NY or Menlo Park? I've heard mixed info 

2. does anyone know if Barclays is sponsoring again this year?

It's actually so hilarious how people can be so wrong and still be so confident about Morgan Stanley not sponsoring.

I was sponsored and know at least 2 other people within IBD who also did get sponsor. Although one of them didn't get pick in the lottery.

People saying they don't never worked at MS and probably heard from a friend who got dinged and use that as an excuse on why.

Maybe your class is different as that was a couple of years ago. Not sure if they're sponsoring moving forward.
