These are the banks to work for across M&A, ECM and DCM in the U.S.

The U.S. is the place to be if you want to work in any sort of advisory function. Revenues far outstrip Europe and Asia-Pacific. But while M&A has largely done OK state-side this year, and debt capital markets bankers have had a good 2016, equity capital markets professionals have suffered.

So, which banks have had the best year in U.S. investment banking this year? J.P. Morgan is, perhaps obviously, the most consistent across the board, while Goldman Sachs' dominance in M&A has ensured that it sits in second place overall. Bank of America Merrill Lynch leads in DCM, and Wells Fargo's showing in this area has ensured that it remains in the top ten despite weakness in most other areas. Morgan Stanley is third in M&A, but sits behind BAML in the overall rankings. Barclays is the top European bank, but still sits outside of the top five.
