Just wanted to start a discussion on the landscape in London given that it's 2018 and the affects of brexit are looming and the future is still uncertain.
I guess just really wondering what the overall atmosphere and landscape for investment banking is in London right now?
Secondly, how do the top investment banks in London rank? For the BBs it seems like the ranking is similar to that in the US with GS/MS/JPM being the top but how do the boutiques rank? How do Lazard / PJT / Evercore / Moelis / Centerview rank in London including the restructuring businesses for Lazard and PJT?
How much do London bankers make relative to the US and each other?
