Citi student programs 2024

Deutsche Bank student programs 2024

Deutsche Bank quit its equity trading business back in 2019, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a fighting fit outfit to join. It’s been one of the big hirers in 2023, benefitting from the slew of Credit Suisse people that have been released from the enlarged UBS chimera. That’s a big double-edged sword – if investment banking revenues roar back to life, Deutsche is well placed to take advantage.

UBS student programs 2024

There’s fewer more exciting places to be in finance right now than UBS (unless you’re ex-Credit Suisse, but that’s a story for a different day). The bank was a stalwart investment banking house before the merger, as was Credit Suisse – and the two combined are now on track to be among the biggest in the world based on revenues.

HSBC student programs 2024

HSBC is, quite frankly, a colossus. It’s the biggest bank in Europe (and one of the biggest in the world) based on both assets and market capitalization. It’s also very international, and especially focused on Asia – a much faster-growing and dynamic market than Europe. It’s still got a weighty presence in the USA, however.

BNP Paribas student programs 2024

BNP Paribas announced over a year ago that it intended to be Europe’s top investment bank, and a lot of people laughed. Well, they’re not laughing anymore. The bank has put its money where its mouth is in a major way, and is now the 4th biggest bank in EMEA and 9th biggest globally.

Société Générale student programs 2024

Société Générale, usually called SocGen, was for a long time the sick man of Europe(an banking). There were inklings that that might change with new CEO Slawomir Krupa, but that fire has more or less burnt out. Krupa had a chance to prove the world wrong and show SocGen’s new direction at its annual investor day but was cagey on details for the bank’s transformation. The question you need to ask yourself as a prospective intern is if you trust Krupa, former SocGen investment banking chief, to turn the bank into a powerhouse.

Standard Chartered student programs 2024

Standard Chartered is similar to HSBC in the sense that it’s a British bank that’s deeply concerned with Asia. It’s different in the sense that, whilst HSBC has a substantial presence in the UK, Standard Charted has barely any. The bank’s revenues and profits overwhelmingly come from Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.

Boutique bank student programs 2024

Boutique banks are interesting places to be in 2024. They’ve had mixed results, and that means their bankers have had mixed fates. Working a boutique is not for the faint of heart – the hours are harder than at big banks, but they also pay better - it’s very much a case of “only the brave”. They’re also a lot harder to get in to, so good luck. You’ll need it.
