Time for traders to quit Barclays and Deutsche Bank for BNP Paribas?

BNP Paribas wants to be one of Europe’s top investment banks when it comes to sales and trading. Today’s results from the French bank suggest it’s well on the way to achieving this – largely thanks to the travails of its rivals, Barclays and Deutsche Bank.

Has Barclays become the best alternative to working for a U.S. bank?

Can’t get a job at a top tier U.S. investment bank? Maybe you should give Barclays a go?

What the most powerful ex-Goldman Sachs banker plans next. Barclays’ scary signal

Sometimes it makes sense to leave Goldman Sachs. By quitting the firm to join the Trump administration, Gary Cohn has not only enriched himself to the tune of around $284m, he’s also leapfrogged Lloyd Blankfein in terms of global influence.

The 2017 pre-bonus job cuts have begun and they’re happening here. Why firms reject you unfairly

When banks announced bonuses at Christmas, any extra staff were dismissed in December. Now that bonuses are announced in January, surplus staff are dismissed early in the New Year.

The best banking jobs under Trump, by Deutsche and Barclays

Wondering which sorts of banking jobs are going to thrive under Donald J.? While it clearly won’t be compliance (Trump’s expected to start a regulatory bonfire), or cross-border M&A (who’s going to want to do global deals in a world where trade barriers are back in vogue?), some species of bank employees are in for a good four years.

What Trump means for the U.S. economy. Two charts from Barclays

As the dust settles, everyone’s trying to understand what Trump means. With risk on and markets surging, nothing is happening as expected. Pundits everywhere got it wrong. This doesn’t mean punditry is dead.  “There are as yet far more questions than answers about the future policy stance of a Trump presidency and the market will struggle to digest the full implications […]

2016 pay for analysts, associates, VPs in IBD in London, by bank

The average UK financial services bonus last year was £13.4k. Sounds good? Not if you’re a 25 year-old working in M&A or capital markets for a major bank in London. In this case, you’ll already be expecting a bonus of £30k+ ($40k+). So says the new salary and bonus survey from London recruitment firm Dartmouth Partners. If Dartmouth’s right, then during the first ten […]
