UBS Top Groups?

I couldn't find a thread on this but wanted to know what are the top groups in UBS currently. I've heard Industrials and its FS/LevFin group are solid but wanted to hear from more perspectives. Thanks!

Industrials at UBS doesn't come close to GS, MS, JPM, Barclays, Citi, BAML, RBC and the like.

UBS does well in ECM/DCM, can't really compete in M&A since around 2012 or 2013(never really recovered from 07 either).

Heard some say their FIG (among others) is decent, would love to see other opinions

I believe their LevFin group is the top group by revenue in the bank.

had multiple friends leave different UBS coverage groups early after ~1 year because of lack of deal flow.

It's getting a lot better. UBS basically got rid of a bunch of underperforming coverage groups last year, so they're focusing on 4-5 and trying to win mandates. I heard Industrials, TMT are very solid. FIG has had some great exits as well

Sponsors/LevFin has been historically strongest and would say it's still top. TMT and industrials are solid. They've really been trying to grow consumer as well, brought in some new MDs and have been on some big deals recently (Pepsi acquisition of Pioneer Foods, Natura acquisition of Avon).

Heathcare seems to do a lot of equities work, not much M&A. RELL also not very strong. FIG is decent but not what it used to be.

Natura covered out of LatAm - not relevant. Pepsi? S African coverage of this deal. UBS is a joke
