Groups & Regions
Here you can find everything you need to know about working in different groups within finance – M&A, ECM, and so on – as well as in different regions and cities across the world.
Plus, all sorts of different areas beyond investment banking – such as Sales & Trading, Equity Research, Private Wealth Management, Prop Trading, and more.
And we even get to make fun of consultants a good amount as well (since that never gets old).
