JP Morgan vs. Morgan Stanley M&A

Looking at these two groups today and going forward, would you say they are marginally different in terms of deal flow, experience gained, and exit opportunities?

It seems that JP's M&A group has a more solid foundation while MS's is going through some turbulence affected by the turmoil MS has gone through in the past year or two.

Not sure what you mean by "success." Care to elaborate?

In terms of exit opportunities, yes they are different. MS M&A has always (for as long as I know) been widely regarded as one of the top banking groups on Wall Street and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. While JPM M&A is a good group, it simply doesn't attract the same caliber of analyst talent or buyside/recruiter attention.

Thanks for the reply seamlessftw. I've updated my post to hopefully be clearer.

I know MS M&A has been a top group on the street for many years, but do you not see that number 1 spot a little wobbly?

Maybe not - but once an institution seriously at the verge of bankruptcy , can it seriously ever claim prestige? JP Morgan is currently in much better shape than MS so the group will have more room to grow by making stronger offers to people.

But , MS M&A has great exit points unless the group prestige also drops in KKR and Blackstone's eyes
