How we calculated the investment banking Champions League table

Manager: John Mack
Age: 62
Appointed: 2005
Value added: 44.1% pa (2nd)
Chop rating: 2/5

Star players:

Rising star: Chairman of Morgan Stanley International, Jonathan Chenevix-Trench has risen up the ladder from humble fixed-income beginnings. Smooth and urbane, Chenevix-Trench is extremely well connected and a key player in its non-US business

Weakest link: Was always considered to be the best run firm on The Street, yet somehow got outwitted by the bean counters from Dean Witter.
