« Analyste M&A at Goldman Sachs », « Equity Derivative Sales at Morgan Stanley ». Quel étudiant désirant travailler en finance n’a pas rêvé un jour d’ajouter ces lignes sur son CV et son LinkedIn ?

UBS’s top banker’s big break at 27. The one trait that will get you hired

It’s difficult to imagine for students toiling away through multiple internships, while attempting to secure amazing academics to land their first banking job, but things were a little more relaxed for the generation that’s currently heading up the big banks. Lloyd Blankfein told Goldman Sachs’ interns last year to ‘chill’and find themselves a little before striving towards banking. Now Sergio Ermotti, UBS’s […]

UBS is thinking about its bankers’ lifestyle. The only place to work at Goldman Sachs

Andrea Orcel, the president of UBS’s investment bank, says that the bank is listening to its employees. While most large investment banks have announced plans for a new EU hub as the UK prepares to leave the bloc, UBS is the one big firm to remain suspiciously quiet.

Deutsche Bank’s banking analysts were similarly underwhelmed, suggesting there was nothing in UBS’s fourth quarter to […]

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.

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 […]

How investment banks fell out of love with MBAs

MBA students have fallen out of love with investment banks and the feeling is mutual. The expensive qualification that formerly offered an option for beginning a banking career after a stint in another industry, is increasingly being eschewed by banks. Banks don’t want to hire MBAs: they want to hold onto the juniors they hired at graduate level instead. The […]

Comment UBS et Credit Suisse ont assoupli les horaires de travail de leurs banquiers juniors

Les millenials ne sont pas comme leurs prédécesseurs. S’ils s’attendent à un salaire élevé propre aux emplois juniors en banque d’investissement, ils ne sont pas prêts à accepter un mode de vie épuisant avec des semaines dépassant 80 heures de travail. Les établissements financiers réagissent en conséquence. Si les banques américaines ont commencé à limiter les horaires de travail des […]

The 7 skills at the top of banks’ shopping lists in 2016

If you want a new banking job in London this year, you’ll need to be niche.
