    PWM --> I would say GS, MS, HSBC, ML, CS and UBS (although weaker than in the past). Barclays, DB and RBC are expanding. UBP, LODL, Pictet and Sarasin are small but very prestigious.
    A ranking is not very meaningful, since it depends on the type of clients (HNWI, UHNWI or quasi-institutional) and the region.

    AM --> GS, DB, MS, CS and UBS have solid AM/IM division. But some of the strongest players are non-banks: e.g. Blackrock, Fidelity and French/German/Benelux (Axa, Natixis, Allianz, etc..) groups..

    Can't really speak for PwM, Barclays WM does spring to mind though and UBS were certainly rated

    In AM:
    Banks: GS, DB, JPM, (MS/ML - but MLs meat was BlackRock)
    Other: Gartmore , Henderson, Threadneedle, Schroders (/Citi), Fidelity, Jupiter, BlackRock (/BGI),Artemis

    Highlighted the ones not mentioned above that are really worth a mention

    JPM is very strong (my fault)

    Never heard of Gartmore, Henderson, Jupiter and Artemis: maybe they are strong in UK...

    I have very few info regarding Schroders, is it a good AM? (I was thinking about their internship)? Strong divisions (equities,fixed income, quant strategies, etc..)?

    Yeah sorry, I'm speaking from a UK point of view

    What do you mean by best? Size, profitability,presitige?

    The biggest PWMs (broad definition) are: ML, UBS MSSB, CS. But MSSB, ML are brokerage houses whereas UBS, CS are more of PWMs.
    Most profitable again depends: PWMs command higher fees than brokerage houses so UBS is probably the most profitable.
    Most 'prestigious' in the UK are probably, Coutts and Duncan Lawrie.

    It's a similar divide for AMs, size, profitability, prestige, etc.

    But generally: BGI, JPM, GS, DB.

    MSSB is a brokerage house, but MS PWM isn't (clients with a net-worth of minimum of $20mln)

    It's still part of MSSB. Which is why I said 'broad definition'.
