    I was researching challenges for a bank and came across this:

    "Challenging environment - highly geared towards an increase in interest rates (advances to deposits 69%)"

    Looking up the term highly geared suggests the bank has high levels of debt, but here it has loans<deposits?

    If loans<deposits, why is this bad (increase in r)?

    Thanks in advance.

    erm. Yes they do. We had a representative from the Deutsche HR team come to our university and tell us that its just as important as everything else. If you get 18/18 whilst another guy scrapes it and gets 13/18, everything else being equal they obviously going to pick the guy who gets 18/18.
    I actually did a summer internship in IBD at a bulge bracket, was told it was used to cull applicants. Maybe Deutsche has its own thing going on, but it's pretty common knowledge among most people that its nowhere near as important as the rest as the application & is used for sifting people out.

    Apparently S&T much better than ibd.. But well totally tier 3. Comparable to BNP HSBC RBC in my opinion (bit worse in IBD... RBC sucks at it too but pay is good).

    Oh okay. Fair enough man. Nice! Tbf I did take Deutsche' advice with a pinch of salt. He looked bit of a suspect retard. I suppose it can't harm your application to do well though :P.

    thanks for the advice mate lol

    its not that big headed to say they're not a priority when they make 10th on the list for all products and dont even make the top 10 for M&A, Equities or Bonds http://markets.ft.com/investmentBank...sAndTrends.asp
    Yep, I know. But consider that you're one of very very very many students at target universities who will be applying for similar positions. Good to accept that actually there is a fair chance you won't get into one of these top banks, and have something to fall back on.

    Has anyone every applied to Centerview before? I just sent off an application, not sure what to expect in terms of how long they will take to get back to me if they ever do, what the process is etc.
    Had an email invitation from Dartmouth partner to apply for Partner Brunch. They leaked my profile in Linkedin. Applied and failed. But they told me there will be 7-8 grad positions this year.

    Apologies if I have interpreted this incorrectly but..Nomura is defo not a tier 3, they're 100% a tier 2 and I don't think Nomura is comparable to tier 3's like BNP, HSBC or RBC. Nomura have actually worked on huge deals, especially in oil and consumer industries, they are more closely comparable to places like the lower end of bulge brackets, a huge amount of nomura employees actually come from tier 1s.

    But yeah also as you said Nomura pay well, very similar to the tier 1s
