According to dating/mating app Hinge, Goldman Sachs comes in at number one compared to employees at other banks, while Citigroup brings up the rear. Meanwhile, employees at UBS are apparently the most picky of the group, while Barclays will do just about anyone.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest financier of them all? Look no further than Goldman Sachs, according to an analysis of one dating app’s data. Goldman employees were 15.8 percent more attractive than the average Hinge user, according to data compiled for CNBC…With the exception of Barclays, each bank’s workers were pickier than the average user.
