M&A is obviously one of the top groups there. FIG will give you a quantitative experience, albeit it may not be relevant to other industry verticals given the accounting and valuation nuances.

They have a really good Sponsors Group. Not sure about the technical experience, but if you have buy-side aspirations, it is a good group.

I've read similar comments that were years ago, is this still the case?
Do full-time associates get modeling experience?

Any comments around Leveraged Finance?
I'm thinking Industrials, M&A and Leveraged Finance as my top groups. I want to get modeling experience as a Summer Associate

Their LevFin team crushes it. They are one of the go to shops for tricky to execute financings. They are housed under their Capital Markets Group (GMSG) rather than their investment banking division, as a FYI.

Sponsors and LA tie.. edge to sponsors for placement. LA for diversity of experience. However, LA mostly places on the west coast.

(pretty decent gap for exit opps)

Tech- not as close to 100% placement but they still land guys in top shop.

LA and sponsors places EVERYONE pretty much.

that CS tech in SF places just as well as LA. However, Sponsors wins hands down overall.

FSG and LA are tied for exits, maybe a slight edge towards LA but FSG has the better lifestyle, hands down.

question, I read some threads saying that LA means Los Angeles while others saying that it's the way hongkong people end their sentence with. In other words, LA means end of a sentence. And in this case, it seems like LA refers to a product group. What does it really mean?

Jul 18, 2017

It means Los Angeles...

LA, as a industry group, can sometimes mean Latin America but everyone here is referring to CS in the City of Angels.

I know a few guys in the M&A group there very well, really smart group of guys. Quantitatively speaking it probably won't be the most intense experience though.
