Goldman Sachs Toronto Office

Rank: Baboon | 147

I am interested in the Goldman Sachs Toronto office. Obviously, it's a regional office, but how's the deal flow? Does anyone have any experience or any knowledge of this office? How does the deal flow stack up to The Big Five Canadian Banks? is this a reputable office to be at? I hear they have a hedge fund mandate. If anyone knows ANYTHING about Goldman Sachs Canada, please post.
Much Appreciated.

I would doubt it, most likely DD superstars or undergrads who worked in banking elsewhere on internships.

okok and what about online applications... I'm assuming I should aim for GS To rather than any other office since I go to a canadian school right?

It depends on your school, if you aren't at Ivey HBA or Queen's Commerce, you likely have 0 chance at even getting an interview at GS. protip: Online (non-ocr) applications are a waste of time!
