Hello everyone,

Was wondering if the conversion is common for a graduate who starts out in asset mgt sales at a large global firm to later on switch to hedge fund analyst/portfolio manager? Also, is it rare to internal transfer from sales to investment analyst/pm roles?

I'm about to graduate and see an opportunity presenting itself to work in an institutional sales capacity. I currently have another option to join a start-up hedge fund. Ultimately, my goal is to become a fund manager, preferably at a large global organization or my own fund. I'd like to know which one would be a better choice to that end. Tks in advance.

    join the startup if you'll get an opportunity to pitch and develop ideas.
    Sales will only get you in to fund raising / IR roles most of the time.
