Hi guys,

Does anyone know what the best IBD groups are for Citi in London, in terms of reputation, bonsues, learning experience, and exit opps? Do industry groups do their own M&A?

I know there aren't really product groups, but industry and geography groups. I have heard the UK group is good and I've also heard FIG is strong.

Thanks

Industrials and Communications are Citi's best, along with M&A and FIG. Energy is now best on street too after the UBS team lift but that's in Houston.

Thanks for the help. What specifically within industrials? I believe there are 3 industrial groups in London. Also, ther is no M&A product group in London, so I'm curious as to who handles M&A (industry or geography groups)?

TMT and Energy fell apart ealier this year. I would seriously think twice about Citi. They are falling fast in European rankings and people are leaving...

Don't Citi analysts in London IBD get to rotate at first anyway? Or is that CMO.

Friend of mine in London BB says FIG and Industrials are strong. Tech is not.

God forbid you actually have any interests of your own and don't join a group purely because someone here told you it had the best exit opportunities.

Congrats man! I actually agree with Coolac that you should choose a group you like.
Having said that I know industrials, M&A, Energy are all solid at Citi London

BTW I didnt know London runs the SA recruitment that fast?!

Energy in London? The MDs left for BoA-ML a couple of months ago. And before that they had significant departures from that team to BarCap.

I would not join that team as it stands....
