Hey everyone. Need to decide between these 2 banks asap! Which one is better and why? (Mainly focused on exit opps) Also, I know P&U is considered the best group at Barclays - what are some of the best groups at RBC? Thanks for your help!

Isn't Barclays the easy choice? I'm not states based so I'm probably missing a bit but Barclay's is a good BB bank with Lehman legacy.

I would think that Barclays is the better option but from what I'm hearing/reading is that Barclays has been pretty shaky whereas RBC is growing exponentially in the US. Not fully sure so thats why I'm asking.

As I said I'm not states based but I'd play it safe and go with Barclays. Every now and then you have a non-BB do good and people want to jump on the bandwagon but in th eend going for a BB turns out to be a consistently better choice. Remember not long ago there was a lot of talk about Macquarie and potentially taking an offer ther over a BB

If you look at the tables on bloomberg it actually depends on group, in general Barclays is a little stronger than RBC but certain teams at RBC are winning. Also RBC has been on the come up and imo if you consider WF a BB then RBC is, RBC is better than most WF teams anyway. Also many of the RBC guys have placed well.

I would say depends on fit IMO, there is a slight difference between the banks buy youre probably going to get a similar/same experience.

To touch on the group, i dont know a ton but based on a few tables, RBC FIG is extremely strong, currently number 4 in depositories/banks. Make sure you look at bloomberg.

Wtf go with Barclays. This is such an easy choice. RBC isn't respected on the street. They only do deals because of their big balance sheet

This is the kind of question where if you have to ask, go with the bigger name.

There's plenty of great reasons why you would want to go with a MM or even local boutique over a BB. Those reasons are also ones where if they apply you probably aren't posting on the internet asking about what you should do.
