The Champions League of investment banking

How we calculated the investment banking Champions League table

Director of football: Fred Goodwin
Age: 48
Appointed: 2001
Value added: 12.3% pa (13th)
Chop rating: 3/5

Goodwin has worked wonders at RBS, but is he the man to take the bank to the next level? Meanwhile head coach Cameron (right) faces a huge challenge to reach his goal of making RBS the leading investment bank for corporates

Head coach: Johnny Cameron (53, 2001)

Star players:
Brian Crowe is the man charged with turning RBS’s global banking and markets division into exactly that. Insiders say he has the clout and talent to do it

Rising star: Simon Drake Brockman has been given the key role of building debt capital markets, credit and rates trading – the areas RBS should be strong competitors in

Weakest link: How long can you be classed as an aspirant? The Greenwich business still does not appear to be fully integrated with the rest of the bank. RBS is still filling in the jigsaw on its product proposition and on execution. And the lack of an equity capital markets business is gaping

Key transfers 2006:

IN: Enrico Cantarelli (head of public sector Italy, from the Italian ministry of economy and finance); Tom Deutoft (European head of loan trading and distribution, from Dresdner Kleinwort); Sandra Wong (head of CDO structuring, structured credit and equity products, from Citigroup)

OUT: Simon Marriott (head of high yield sales); Gianfranco Mattei (head of Rome office, to Credit Suisse)
