    PB, any idea where I can find an accurate article describing the structure of the entire IB industry, and what each division does?

    Been trying to look for one so I can nail my knowledge down, but haven't been very successful at it, heh.

    The more I learned about it [IBD] (which became a fair bit), the less interested in it I became. To the point where I was turned off by it.

    Can't think of any single book/article that does it particularly well. I don't feel they really highlight how all the various areas are linked together. I might write my own view down at some point. Thing is, the industry changes very quickly so it'd probably only be useful for maybe six month, a year at max.

    efinancialcareers is a pretty good starting point but don't take what is on there as gospel. My own view is a kind of concensus (with a few judgement calls) of various sources of information (written sources, observations, asking people etc)

    Front office without a shadow of a doubt. In fact, many guides to IB will tell you that it's the bread and butter of IB. If you're interested in it, do some reading on it, and you'll soon see that there's no need for confusion about what it's classed as.
    what like the vault guide?
