    Came across this and was wondering if you'd agree with this. I'm not sure whether it would apply to UK because I'm sure most people would say Barcap>Credit Suisse. Peoples take on it from a global perspective would be appreciated.

    Credit Suisse has been a Global full-service investment bank for a good few decades. It has established significant offices in all the major business centres of the world, and has a significant presence in all major Investment Banking operations.

    Barcap is still a new player on the market, after buying Lehman USA. In Fixed-Income trading, they always were (and still are) absolutely amazing. In most other areas, they are not a big player yet, but are significantly bulking up. (eg till 2 years ago, they did not have an M&A practice)

    Thus, currently, CS is definitely looked on as a better overall brand in banking than Barcap. this could all change though!

    If you switch the region to the UK/Europe, you might be able to get a more accurate picture. There are some prestige differences among consultancies/banks depending on location.
