NIBC Bank vs. Kempen & Co. (Dutch MM IB's)

Hey all,

Currently got M&A offers from both NIBC Bank and Kempen & Co. My goal is to make the most out of this internship and use it as (additional) leverage to break into London IB after my Masters degree.

Which institution would aid me the most to break into London IB? Aka which has the better reputation, deal flow, etc. A big beginner to investment banking still so any help is much, much appreciated. Cheers!
