I'm currently in an associate level role in the leveraged finance credit risk group of a BB. I got an offer to join as an associate in a coverage group at SMBC. I have prior experience at a ratings agency and am a CFA charterholder.
I work within a bank's CRE arm providing traditional corp banking services to large clients (most being publicly-traded REITs). Almost all deals focus on the entity, rather than the asset/portfolio they're acquiring/developing.
I am brand new to the industry and feel that my interests align more closely to underwriting actual properties and would like to make an eventual transition to the buy-side in an acquisitions role (either at a REIT or REPE firm).
I just landed a corporate banking SA offer at a BB. While I was recruiting for IB and kind of fell into this position through a recent alum, I like the culture and what I know of the work, and given the former, feel like it would be beyond dumb to throw away the offer especially in this environment. However, I am genuinely curious about where most people who start in corp. banking at a bulge bracket end up.
Hi. This is a rising senior who at a top 25 college with a 3.3 GPA (yea very low..)
I'll be interning at FP&A team for an IT company. Although I'll be doing FP&A, I have very big aspirations of doing more finane related tasks in financial institutions such as corporate bankings or Big 4 advisory.
What are some options that I can go from this FP&A experience to Full Time job opportunities?
I am a rising Senior at a top 20 private university here at the states with a business major.
For my junior internship, I'll be interning at F700 IT company's corporate finance team.
However for full time, I want to work at banks, most preferably in the Corporate Banking side or in the corporate finance team.
Is this route possible?
This might be dumb, but I couldn't find any solid answers. Is it pretty easy to make the jump from Corporate Banking to a large corporate's Treasury group? I'm mostly thinking for a position after associate level.
Hello all, I have been searching for information regarding which corporate banks are the most highly regarded. However, there is not much information on this subject. I was hoping that someone here could provide clarity. Any input is much appreciated, thanks.
I have been fortunate enough to get a graduate offer for a European BB in Corporate Banking and am excited about it. However, my goal is to end up in Investment Banking (DCM or Lev Fin seem like the most natural transitions from CB).
I’ve been sitting on this post for a while. I was waiting for it to turn into a success story; started-from-the-bottom-now-we’re-here kind of story. But it’s been so long I’m going to post it anyway.
I was arrested in May 2018 for assault and was convicted in March 2019 with a felony assault. I got into a physical altercation no longer than 10 seconds and the guy decides to call the cops and have me arrested and press charges. I have had 3 years analyst experience working in commercial banking up to this point and is currently working at another commercial bank for over 1.5 years now. I recently started applying to other jobs and landed an offer in corporate banking on the underwriting side (portfolio management).
