Barclays Top Groups in NYC

Hey all,

I've looked around at past threads and was able to gather that the top groups at Barclays are:

  1. Power and Utilities
  2. NatRes
  3. Consumer Retail
  4. Healthcare

Is this up to date, if so what makes them so strong? Anyone have details on the other groups at Barclays and how strong they are like CMG/TMT, LevFin, ECM? Going through some preliminary group selection due diligence, and would like to find a group to build a career in (not exit to PE)

I'd say after your top 3, it is a toss-up between most other coverage groups all things considered- I'm thinking culture, deal-flow, and exits. I would say FIG and Tech fall below the others like Healthcare, CMG, Industrials, Sponsors, etc.

CMG and FIG- great culture, solid deal flow
HC and Industrials- long hours + decent exits
Sponsors- good culture + decent exits, very small group (4 analysts per class)
Chemicals, Tech, and RE- avoid avoid avoid

Avoid product groups at Barclays including LevFin and capital markets if you want more M&A and modeling work.

Interesting and very helpful. Thanks! Do you know how large the other groups are? (ie how many interns or analysts are in power, cmg, etc. every summer)

check out the recent barclays to MM PE thread. OP would surely answer any of your questions.

CMG, C&R, and Sponsors are the smallest with ~4-5 per class
NatRes, HC, and Power have ~6-8 per class
Industrials and Fig have ~9 per class
Tech and LevFin have ~10 per class
Chemicals have ~ 4-7 per class
Rest I'm not too certain

I thought their chemicals group was the top group on the street?

No it's definitely Power & Utilities

That's not what I meant. I meant their chemicals group was the top chemicals group on the street.
