I'd say Rothschild. Your "friend" would also be fine at Nomura or Piper, assuming she liked the groups there. Mizuho might be a little tough because because its more foreign and not a typical feeder to PE.

Are you going sign the offer letter for your "friend" also

The answer to your question is 1) network 2) get involved 3) beef up your resume 4) repeat -happypantsmcgee WSO is not your personal search function.

I'm glad somebody finally called someone out for a "friend" thread. Really, you made a new account here just to ask a question for a friend?

One of those lights, slightly brighter than the rest, will be my wingtip passing over.

I say Nomura. They've been making moves like Silvio Berlusconi! I really think they will go places.

Rothschild, RBC and Nomura can all be leveraged to a BB.
However, you/ she should DEFINITELY consider the fact that she might not be able to jump ship and should therefore take the firm of the 3 she feels she could hang with for 2+ years

With smaller banks groups can make a big difference if you have any say/guarantee. For example Mizuho has some good groups/specialties (project finance, Latam, Asia) but overall would be pretty low on that list.

There have been many great comebacks throughout history. Jesus was dead but then came back as an all-powerful God-Zombie.

You can't beat Financial Aristocracy lawl. In London, I'd actually consider Rothschild over GS, too.
