Silicon Valley’s Favorite Dealmakers

Art by Matt Vascellaro

For the second year in a row, Goldman Sachs was overwhelmingly the favorite choice of investment bank in our subscriber poll. Not only would more subscribers pick Goldman to handle their company’s IPO than any other firm, but Goldman bankers were nominated more often as favorites than those from any other firm.

In both categories, Morgan Stanley was the No. 2 pick, while Allen & Co. came in third in The Information’s second annual survey on tech industry dealmakers.
