Brand is still embryonic

Comments

We are the firm you thought Goldman Sachs, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, DLJ and Morgan Stanley were. We are better positioned for success and more appreciated and respected by our clients than Lazard, Evercore, Greenhill, Perella Weinberg, Peter J Solomon, and Rothschild are.

Comments

Don't overlook us because we're classified as a boutique firm and you'd rather work at a bulge bracket. I came from a top bulge bracket bank and can say that I've learned more in my short career at Moelis and worked on much more interesting projects (i.e. I'm not doing nearly as much internal busywork) than I did at my old firm. Combine that with a better lifestyle than the bulge brackets and quality leadership, and this firm is the best-kept secret in the Wall Street labor force.
