    Holding offers from UBS and Barclays for a 2018 IBD SA position.
    What are your thoughts on which to go for?

    UBS has fewer interns recently with high conversion rates, in addition to the bank being stable.
    Barclays is kinda still all over the place?

    In terms of brand name, Barclays has a slight edge. However, UBS has Andrea Orcel leading its investment bank and he seems to be doing a great job. They have reshaped their business and are taking careful steps towards establishing themselves as leaders in areas they focus strongly. Barclays management seems all over the place and their results have been trash lately. A person high up in the industry told me to avoid Barc and DB. I would go with UBS, but you can't go wrong with either. Congratulations!
