Top Ten Investment Banking Groups

Hello All,

Just for fun, I thought it would be interesting to get everyone's take on the top 10 groups in investment banking considering reputation, dealflow, senior leaders within group, overall prestige, etc. I totally recognize this is subjective and shouldn't be used as a way to make employment decisions.

With that said, what are YOUR top 10 groups across BB, EB, MM, etc?

Make it more fun and people should guess what group the person posting it is in (i.e identify the group that is ranked too high)
