    Barcap has always been a good bank - I know the president of the company reasonably well and he is a pretty non-assuming guy but he built its derivatives business and is not swayed by the hoopla of the market.
    The way I see it, the main reason Barclays is doing as well as it is is because they couldn't match RBS&co on ABN Amro, that would have completely destroyed everything they'd built so far...

    I'm at a non BB bank in S&T. Thread made me curious so I whipped out my intern handbook and got the following:

    Warwick: 2
    Durham: 2
    LSE: 2
    Bath: 1
    Cambridge: 3
    Loughborough: 1 (SEO)
    Oxford: 1

    Above is sales & trading across all asset classes. With research as well you get 2 more LSE, 1 ICL, 1 CASS.

    Toss in DCM too and you get an additional 3 Oxford, 1 Cambridge, 1 Leeds.

    And just for fun M&A nets 5 LSE, 1 Warwick, 2 ESCP, 1 Bocconi and a couple of US colleges.
