The Champions League of investment banking

How we calculated the investment banking Champions League table

Director of football: Stephen Green, Michael Geoghegan
Age: 53
Appointed: 2006
Value added: 15.6% pa (11th)
Chop rating: 4/5

The G-Men are new to their positions but already under pressure. It’s never easy to take over from a long-standing predecessor. Huge strides are needed soon in investment banking to show the outlay has been worthwhile

Head coach: Stuart Gulliver (47, 2003)

Star players:
Gulliver now has the chance to run the show on his own. Has a very loyal set of senior players underneath him, but do they have the talent and experience to propel HSBC up the league table?

Rising star: Daniel Palmer, after joining the bank from Morgan Stanley in September 2004, is now head of global capital markets, a rapid rise for a man who was head of equities in New York a little more than a year ago. He comes from an equity and convertible capital markets background

Weakest link: Despite being one of the biggest in the world it continues to punch way below its weight in investment banking, where John Studzinski failed to make his expected impact.
