Centerview London: reputation and Vault ranking?
I am getting the impression - from this forum, Vault and speaking to people, that Centerview is doing really well in the US. But how about in London? They seem to be missing from the Vault guide's European ranking, a guide which I otherwise have the impression is well regarded.
From looking on LinkedIn, their London office has approx. 20 people (including administrative staff), and only 5-6 analyst - small office, obviously (although I don't think that's bad). In 2014 they - according to Mergermarket's "League Tables for 2014 Financial Advisors and M&A Trend Report" - advised on 18 deals worth 72 billion USD (this number is for Europe only). Completing 3 deals/year on average as an analyst seems amazing to me - am I wrong here?
Does anybody know why Centerview London is not getting any more love (general prestige)? Are they too small/new or just not considered that great in London? I would just be surprised by the latter due to their deal flow and some of the deals they have been on.
Thanks for your input!
