lol all your secondary advisory takes are awful. CS is not a major player. It's EVR at the top. PJT lost a bunch of heads. Greenhill PCA is all but gone and went to Jeff. Jeff does mostly LP advisory and still building out GP side which is where market is going. Don't think anyone would take CS PCA over any of the EBs/GS/Jeff lmfao

I did specially note "don't take this as a master list - particularly the IB adjacent group".  My secondary list is mostly from how my non-secondary focused MDs talk about them - they could easily be out of date, which, it sounds like you're more up to date with who has moved where.  With that said, PJT Park Hill comes up frequently / I think they are still quite well respected.

No, they bought themselves out.

Eastdil have always been a bunch of characters.  They were initially the RE group at Eastman Dillon (hence, Eastdil), then split out on their own.  Then they were owned by Nomura... and management bought their way out to be independent.  Wells Fargo bought them later, and it was an interesting dynamic... At one point, Eastdil made up 2% of the headcount and nearly 30% of the revenue for Wells Fargo's investment banking business.  Because they were culturally and economically so different, they were given a ton of leeway to do their own thing - they had their own separate offices (different addresses), their own dress codes (no casual Fridays like at Wells), their own hiring process, and most importantly, their own expense guidelines.  Despite all of this, Wells was a constant pain for them, and provided limited benefit.  Because of that, management bought themselves out again in 2019, and they're now independent again.
