M&A, Healthcare, Comms is still relevant from 2015.

I was checking linkedin profiles from random IB analysts @ MS in LDN, and got even more confused:

there is a guy working in the M&A (Oil & Gas Team)
and there is also a guy in the Oil & Gas Sector Coverage

Now, are those 2 different groups? Does Oil & Gas Sector Coverage do any M&A or..?

I was always under the impression that MS did have a standalone M&A product group in London, but I could be wrong. I do know people that work within industry teams who do their own M&A who list their groups as [Industry] Coverage/Investment Banking, and others that use [Industry] M&A, despite these being the exact same teams.

Also, it's common to see geography-based groups with "M&A" or "Coverage" tagged on, sometimes mixed within the same bank, so you get UK M&A, but Nordic Coverage too.

Don't know about best groups though.

Thanks for your comment!

Best groups, as I was told on one of the MS events which I participated, during the informal conversation with one associate who recently joined from HLHZ Restrucutring:
(roughly in this order, not 100% sure)

1) FIG, TMT
2) Transportation
3) Utilities
4) Oil & Gas

but pretty much all the groups should be well regarded, i think that she just mentioned o&g and utilities as an example
