We’re fast approaching the end of the first quarter, and that means it’s league table time on Wall Street.
Wall Street banks care a lot about how they stack up against their rivals. At the top of their earnings statements, they tout where they placed in each line of business, and those rankings appear in just about every pitch book they hand out.
Global dealmaking revenue stands at $17.1 billion for the year to date, up from a weak first quarter of 2016.
US fees are up 19% at $8.8 billion, while fees in Europe, Middle East and Africa (-11%) and Asia Pacific (-8%) are down.
So far in 2017, it’s the usual suspects at the top of the tables. Goldman Sachs has maintained its customary position at the top of the mergers and acquisitions league table, while JPMorgan ranks first for equity and debt capital markets.
Here’s how the banks stack up:
Goldman Sachs ranks No.1 for M&A revenues.
JPMorgan ranks top for equity capital markets revenues.
And for debt capital markets revenues too.
