So Wall St are hoping to compete with SF, and the promise of shares in the next $Bn unicorn, by offering an interest rate cut that could save new grads up to $8/month

On the other hand, a merchant bank staffed entirely by non-risk taking, play it safe savers with a poor idea about money and maths could make a change

That's a nice perk. Wouldn't make sense for all employers, but some (like accounting firms, ie PWC) do hire a lot of new grads, many of which have SLs.
