I am an American MBA student in Europe who just secured 2 offers for summer associate Sales and Trading internships in London. The first is from Citi - global brand name, easy to move back to US, presence in emerging markets, high conversion rate from intern to full-time. The second is from Nomura - basically Lehman Europe, smaller more entrepreneurial, high-caliber people. I would like to work in London for the next couple years but perhaps would like to move back to New York after that. It seems that Nomura is better known in Europe but Citi is better known globally. Which would you pick?? Not sure about my personal desk/function interests.. open-minded but perhaps sales in commodities for example?

Advice would be greatly appreciated!

Nomura only for japan only.

Citi everywhere else, no question.

Since OP wants to do S&T in London, I would suggest looking into the trading volumes on the London Stock Exchange and compare the two firms' numbers. I think this would be the right approach to this issue in order to make the informed decision.

Agreed, Nomura is a joke in NYC it'd be much easier to move back with Citi brand.
