Hi all just a question about choosing between ML and JPM? I don't know which group i'm going to be in yet - but if just general M&A, in terms of prestige, exit opp, culture, pay pkt etc..

What about if it's specifically for HK?

Thanks lots!

Don't know about HK, but for IBD I would take ML.

  1. Prestige ML>JPM
  2. Exit opps - group dependent (good groups at both ML M&A, HC, RE... JPM sponsors, lev fin...)
  3. Pay the same
  4. Culture - it depends on the people in your team

It depends on group but overall but on balance I think ML offers a better package.
