Also, the domestic market is very active: M&A volumes in the US are always larger that what you can see in Europe.Therefore, from a general perspective, Americans tend to be better at financial modelling due to their more extensive experience, and they are used to handle a lot of stress compared to their European counterparts.Other cost are also about the same, except from transportation which is more expensive in London (but you'll use taxis to go back and forth to the office anyway). New York Salaries and bonuses at the junior level are pretty much in line between the two cities and this will remain the case so as not to have a massive exodus to one of the two cities.On an after-tax basis, tax rates are roughly the same, except for very high salaries, where NY has an advantage given the new tax system in the UK (50% tax above £150,000 earnings).But London eventually caught back in the last decade as the influx of so many sophisticated French, Italian, Spanish, German, Chinese and Indian immigrants started to dramatically improve the quality of London's workforce.While after September 11 businesses suddenly had to struggle to get visas for employees to work in New York, or even to visit on business trip, visas for Britain have always remained easily available.For Americans and many from Asia Pacific too, London is also attractive given the more comfortable lifestyle it offers, and opportunities to work on deals across multiple European countries. New York as financial centres - a brief history New Yorkers often imagine their city at the centre of the world. But after war engulfed Europe in 1914, Europe had to recover and the City lost its place in global finance to New York.
However, New York is a big block of concrete, extra cold in winter, extra hot in summer, and if you are a nature-lover or a family-type person you will be very disappointed and it can be very exhausting.In comparison, the immigration process in the UK is much simpler, cheaper and more transparent: there is a special "Tier I Visa" for highly skilled migrants (it is granted based on a system of points that will take into account your education, age, current salary and any previous experience in the UK), and studying at a good university in the UK will also quickly open the doors to jobs in London, which is not the case in the US.The other reason is that languages and multicultural experiences are not as valuable as they are in the US than in the UK.London is also unique in that you can travel all over Europe very cheaply for weekend breaks.So if you plan to party a lot, go to NY, and if you want a more "settled" lifestyle, go to London.
Native New Yorkers are not the most friendly bunch either, and can be very rough.
