Need advice - Transitioning from IB to HF
I am interested in making the jump from IB to HF and would appreciate any and all advice. I have two years of experience as an IB M&A analyst and an MBA. A few questions:
What level/position would I be looking at for HF?
What is the best way to actually make this transition? FWIW, I am on the West Coast and have heard a number of suggestions: establish a track record through personal trading, start at a prop shop, direct outreach to interesting HFs, recruiters, etc...
