After spending 1.5 years in a Big 4 firm, I finanlly made a smooth transition to ibanking. I am now having two offers and need to decide which to take. Both offers are in Hong Kong.
1. A 3-tier Japanese IBank (one of the largests in Japan),; Title: Corporate Finance Analyst.
The deal sizes might not be significant and but do have consistent deal flow. The pay is considered really low.
2. A leading commercial company specializes in investing and operating in energy sector; Title: Corporate Finance Analyst (In-house acquisition and project finance position)
A major player in the field. Major duties is to build models and forecasts cashflow to support M&A and project finance transactions. The company is generous and pays me at decent market stadards (read: about 20% - 30% higher than option 1, including bonous)
As a not-so-recent graduate, im looking forward to building a career in either ibanking or PEs. Can anyone comment on those options and what there exit strategies are like?
