    Both are in trouble at the moment - one or both could go bust - not sure it matters at the moment as the tier one apple cart has been effectively upended.

    They are both the same atm - as rboogie said, the market is in turmoil and it's close to imposible to objectively saying one is better than the other.

    In you shoes, I'd go with the one that I enjoyed being interviewed by the most, aswell as my gut feeling.

    Thanks for the advice, just deciding whether to push forward with the process at 1 of them or not...

    go through the process - you have nothing to lose by interviewing there. Just more experience and a possible contact if the other goes under.

    MS has the better global franchise but they are probably pretty similar in Europe, maybe MS still slightly ahead. Both at the top end of the BB spectrum in Europe though.

    I interned at UBS so if you want any advice, PM me.

    Can you push it forward with JPM IBD? They are probably the one to work for at the moment.
