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.

Agreed with Rothschild

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

According to this extremely reputable website:
http://nyjobsource.com/investmentbanks.html
Piper Jaffray is up there with Lazard and Credit Suisse, so take PJC all the way!

... You do realize that Rothschild is an extremely well respected boutique, right?

PJC is a well-regarded MM IB

Easily Rothschild then nomura/rbc then piper

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?

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

Rothschild is very strong. Nomura/RBC are closely behind. If any of these are group specific offers or different locations it may tip the scale in certain directions...

Goodness is the only investment that never fails.

Here is a no-brainer! Rothschild.

lawl piper jefferies, are u gonna wear some menswearhouse suits fulltime?

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.

Wow, sure as hell hope your "friend" didn't sign with Nomura

Take Rothschild. I'd put Nomura well below both PJC and RBC.

I would hope OP would have chosen by now

I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

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