I know it's very common from going from BB -> Mega HF (i.e. Soros)

I was curious on what everyone thought about going from ER (Macro / Fundamental) -> Mega HF

Just wanted to comment that it is not VERY common to go to Mega HF from BB. Or is it?

Relatively common from both. You just see less ER to HF transitions simply because you have fewer ER professionals vs. IBD guys.I assume somewhere in the OP you missed the word IBD as otherwise your question does not make sense - surely you can work within ER at a BB.

On another note - it's not common for anyone to go to Soros, it's like saying how common it is to go to Eclectica Asset Management.

Yup I meant BB IBD -> Mega HF

I am in equity research at a BB and I used to think that it is common for IBD guys to go to mega HFs...as I progress on my job and meet more clients, I see more ER -> HF transitions.

How often do you see this and what does the path typically look like? Do people usually go to HFs after 2 years in ER or more? I am starting in BB ER in July and I'm interested in going to a HF longer term. What sorts of funds do people go to? And how useful is CFA?

Nothing is ie. Soros

I was just wondering if Equity Research is still a good training ground for Hedge Funds. The more I read, the more I see how bankers are preferred at value funds. You start to read things about headhunters preferring bankers and not even considering ER. Is this because there are less people in ER than banking? Is it very common for people in ER to move into Hedge Funds? Also on a side note, can ER transition to macro funds?

you're bumping 37 minutes after making a comment? Neither IBD nor ER will help you to make a move to HF.

Yes it is common, usually to equity l/s with sector coverage.
