Investment Bank Comparison

Here are some links and videos about each investment bank. This should give you a quick and easy way to learn more about each bank and tailor your answer specifically to the interview question, 'Why our bank?'. Some links are videos and some are to the Careers page on their website. Definitely go through and check out the YouTube links. Deutsche Bank has some great multimedia presentations I recommend you check out on their website. Use this info to help you prepare for your interviews.

Watch out for links on the company website that say 'Why Our Bank' or something very similar. This is a question you will definitely get in the interview process. It can also be a very difficult question if you are not prepared. Don't try and reinvent the wheel, use the points they spent time and money putting together to your advantage by integrating them into your answer.

Very good information about banking comparison. The investment banking industry in the world handles billions of dollars in investments that include stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and raising capital. Thanks a lot...
