CS - it's less likely to go bankrupt in my opinion.

CS - they have a great FSLF team and good management up top. Absolutely less likely to eat shit going forward...

Yea. Just wait until citi til writes down all the toxic assets still on its balance sheet. Going to be very difficult, politically, to bail them out again.

cs is high because of one deal only

having said that, i'm really not a fan of citi. go to cs

Disagree. CS isn't highly ranked simply because of the Prudential - AIG deal (which I am assuming is what you are referring to) - the Reuters Q1 League Table posted elsewhere on the site breaks it down pretty well.

I think he's probably talking about the Carso deal, but CS is still killing it this year.

I find this post interesting to illustrate how silly these "vs." posts are and how fleeting industry perception is.

No one in their right mind would view CS as a stronger platform than Citi today. Not even close.

They aren't meant to be long-term comparisons. The entire purpose of this thread was to help someone choose between X and Y for the purpose of PE recruiting.
