Sell Side ER vs. Buy Side Ops (special circumstances)
I'm pretty sure I know the answer already but I'm not familiar with the equity research world so I wanted to get opinions on this. Under the given circumstances, I was wondering which path would be best to ultimately become a buy side analyst. The choices available to me are:
Equity L/S 1.5B fund with under 10 total employees, awesome track record and am the only person working the ops. No previous history at the fund where people have been moved from one role to another. Haven't asked about the possibility.
Is the sell side ER job the obvious choice?
