BBG

Feb 8, 2010

rmi: No, I'm a student preparing for an interview. And thanks, I'll go check it out on Bloomberg. Would I use LEAG?

drexel: What is BBG? Is that the Bloomberg function?

Feb 8, 2010

Nevermind, I figured it out.

I used the MA page on Bloomberg and searched GS US Equity.

Feb 8, 2010

Function MA L - choose criteria - there you go

if you want a specific article, i'll send over

GS has 13 announced deals globally YTD 2010

Biggest profile probably Novartis, Hutch / Whampoa and CVC Matahari

Simple way to find deal information by bank using Capital IQ?

Feb 10, 2010

which one - there's no article on all the deals

Feb 10, 2010

FinanceAsia

Feb 10, 2010

You need CapIQ or something similar.

Feb 10, 2010

Assuming you just need the information for an interview, a google/dealbook/wsj search should suffice.

Feb 10, 2010

Yeah i got CapIQ but still not able to access the deals the way I want to see it

Feb 10, 2010

Has summer recruiting started?

Feb 10, 2010

This is for FT Associate.

Feb 10, 2010

It's never a good idea to discuss deals that you don't know that much about. It starts a slippery slope to very specific questions that you may not be able to answer. Instead, try and clearly articulate why FIG or why TMT. Express your interest in the group and the industry. Maybe understand some broader industry trends. If you had analyst experience be able to talk about your deals. But you do not need to know the deals that they've done.

Feb 10, 2010

That said, you can actually use bloomberg or cap IQ from your bschool library to get some specifics, if you want to find out what deals were goldmans look at CFO.com's weekly deal roundup.

Essentially, name any big deal and they've been a part of it. But if you want specific names, etc. then go to a bloomberg terminal. "ma leag" go, announced US (I think selection 9) and click on Goldman.

Feb 10, 2010

they did TD Bank acquisition of Commerce Bank (from NJ) -> was an $8.5BN deal

Feb 10, 2010

Thank you all for the replies. I don't have time to go access the Bloomberg terminal in school as the interview will be tomorrow most likely.

Feb 10, 2010
