Both very strong deal flows and exits.
For comp EBs>BBs.
Never been at any of these but culture its EB vs BB again.
I would go for Guggenheim, but keen to see what others say.

Guggenheim is not an EB though. The convo should be addressed as MM vs. BB.

I would go for Guggenheim too in the end.

Tough choice, but Guggenheim is definitely an EB, not a mm....they routinely work on multi billion dollar deals, including the biggest deal of the year last year in Disney, 21st century fox deal

I don't know what qualifies an EB exactly but they are a smaller shop that works on multi-billion dollar deals every year...YTD 2018 they have an average deal size of 3+billion and are ahead of the likes of evercore and moelis on league tables with 9 deals alone...no way that is a mm firm

Personally I would go with Guggenheim. They have been working on some really neat deals lately, pretty big ones at that.

I'm only a sophomore going through recruiting so take it for what its worth.

Spoken quite a bit with people at Guggenheim. Really up-and-coming bank that has closed some really big deals in the past year ($40 billion I think on their website last year). Growing in tech, hc, and industrials, which are all good industries to be in. SA classes have doubled over the past 4-5 years, but that's more of a testament to their growth.

also the analysts all seemed chill and had good camaraderie.

are you at a target? and do you know how receptive they are to non-target students?

Mar 28, 2018

very wharton/stern/uva heavy from what I can tell. not a lot of non-targets.

A lot depends on group placement at Citi...in M&A or industrials you'll get a bunch of looks from funds that might not interview you at Gugg...also real estate at citi has top re exits if you're interested.

Could anyone speak more on Guggenheim's exits? Seems like they have been improving a ton as of late, but the lack of large analyst classes in the past makes it harder to find info on them
