Nomura IBD vs BNP Acquisition Finance
Nomura IBD (mainly M&A and LevFin) or BNP Paribas (Acquisition Finance)?
Both are off cycle internships in Europe. I feel the personal fit at both banks is good. The BNP team deals only with corporate clients (PE is handled by another team), however, they offered me to join the M&A team for one month.
The PE exposure is higher at Nomura and they had a fairly good conversion rate last year. However, I feel BNP is the better brand. What do you guys think?
