The Champions League of investment banking

How we calculated the investment banking Champions League table

Director of football: Charles Prince
Age: 56
Appointed: 2003
Value added: 0% pa (16th)
Chop rating: 4/5

Head coaches: Michael Klein (43, 2006) Tom Maheras (44, 2006)

Star players:

Rising star: Bill Mills, as head of corporate and investment banking for EMEA, has taken Citi to uncharted heights in the European M&A business, with a huge supporting role from whizzkid apprentice Peter Tague
