You're bang on in the global IB market! I just read 40,000 banking and analyst jobs were being cut by the big banks. We've been isolated from that in Calgary and Saskatoon given the oil & gas sector focus. For those writing their CFA, study hard! Last year there was approx. 120,000 writers, most ever, and the pass rate was lowest ever with 38%. Lots of displaced analysts, bankers and corp. fi. professionals trying to get an advantage in the marketplace.
