Banks in Seattle 2020

Subscribe

Was wondering if anyone could provide some insight into the banking scene in Seattle. Who are the top players? Which banks offer the best exits, pay, deal flow?

Cascadia Capital. Networked with people there and everyone I spoke with was pretty cool.

Never been able to figure out if this is a legit IB or more of a Capstone Headwaters model where MDs hang a shingle, use creds and pooled analysts and eat what they kill.

Lmao I know exactly who the OP is!
Op, it's me your old roomie. Remember that time when you were getting spanked by that 50yr old in Miami? Let's grab a drink soon, virtually. You know how to reach me :)

Whatever you do..do not not..i repeat do not tell anyone in downtown seattle(especially capitol hill) that you work in investment banking or in "wallstreet".  Would have as positive of a reaction as wearing a maga hat in chaz would.

In all seriousness, cascadia is the top shop...but I have heard mixed things.  Seattle is a tech dominated city..not sure how being in high finance works (grew up in Seattle but have never worked there).

I think being corp dev or strategic finance at Amazon or microsoft would trump any ib position at cascadia or da Davidson to be honest.  Id focus there first if it was me.

Wells Fargo and BAML are pretty big there, they're hiring tellers right now. I interviewed though and unfortunately they said my estrogen levels were too low and that I should try going on a soy diet and coming back in a few months.

There are few locations that are as terrible of a choice.
