Which is the best foreign bank?

As the overseas i-banks finally start finding their feet after a year of rabid retrenchments, which foreign firm is emerging as the best one to work for in Australia?

Is it UBS? Although struggling in Switzerland, it’s in pole position on most of the deal tables down under.

What about J.P. Morgan? It recently topped The Banker magazine’s annual list of the strongest 1,000 international banks.

Or is Goldman Sachs JBWere still the place to go to earn top dollars? The average Goldman employee is now within striking distance of taking home close to US$1m in compensation and benefits this year. Releasing its earnings figures recently, the firm said money allocated for pay surged 75 per cent in the second quarter.

Given the choice, what global bank would you rather work for in Australia? Let us know below?
