As a follow-up to yesterday's look at the analyst class at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, today we bring you a sample of this year's hires at JPMorgan.
There are a few things to note. Firstly, they are almost all very international - JPMorgan doesn't seem to be looking for parochial hires from British university. Secondly, they have all done a lot of internships. Thirdly, there aren't many women - although this may just be down to our sample (which is based upon the people JPMorgan registered with the UK Financial Services Authority in August). It's also worth noticing that several people seem to have become analysts straight after doing an off-season or autumn internship. And that if you're a student from overseas, it's still common to top up your foreign qualification with a qualification from a UK university before you start work in London.
