Between IBD and S&T: Capital Markets?!
I am currently work at a top tier bb as a sophomore and have the opportunity to transfer to either S&T or IBD for next year. I would not consider myself very quantitatively inclined, but am familiar with the markets and am more then capable of the requisite mental math work (or accounting for finance). I enjoy learning about the markets and staying up on the news/discussing it, but understand that Sales in S&T may be relatively limiting for exit opps
In the same way, I don't know if I want to sacrifice my life for classic IBD and modeling experience does not really appeal to me as it seems to mean you are in excel all day every day playing with numbers. Whether its as an analyst in IBD or an associate in PE, I imagine that would get old.
How do people feel about Capital Markets in that case as sort of a middle ground? I have read many posts on this forum so far, but I am curios how people feel about Lev Fin (non-modeling group), ECM, DCM in terms of pay, exit opps and how interesting the work would be in contrast to more classic IBD or S&T.
