  1. 1. The following list was “donated” to the GFA by a student. Most companies below provide investment banking services, however several are geared more towards private equity, research, etc. We suggest that you consult Bloomberg to get a better idea of the volume of services these firms provide (i.e. 2003 M&A league table). Another good resource is the list of firms where the class ahead of you interned over the summer. Since the following list is not comprehensive, the GFA has included a supplemental list of investment banks at the end. Good luck. Recent updates: February 24, 2004 “I have strong contacts at a boutique investment bank in San Francisco call JMP Securities. They are very strong in financial services, real estate but also cover technology, restaurants, specialty retail, outsourcing, etc. If anyone expresses interest in talking to me about the company please feel free to contact me at” A.G.
