Transition MBB to Global Macro Hedge Fund?
I'm pretty new to this forum and this is my first post, so let's give it a shot.
Anyways my situation is the following: I'm currently pursuing my MSc at a Top UK University (Oxbridge/LSE). After going through several rounds of recruitment the only viable option I was able to secure was a spot as an entry-level at an MBB.
Now basically the issue was that in the long run I'd like to work for a Global Macro Hedge Fund. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to secure any market side stint at any BB but instead was offered a job in the REPE arm of a BB, which I had to decline due to a collision problem with my masters program. Furthermore, I haven't had the opportunity to intern at any bank or fund before hand but I did some Academic Macro Research during the exchange term at an Ivy League University and I also did an internship at the MBB before my masters.
I'm aware that it my profile isn't necessarily a targeted towards a Macro Fund and I could have done some more stuff in order to land a spot on some FX/Commodities/Rates desk at a BB but that's the past.
Eventually my question is how I should proceed from now on (will only be starting tat the MBB later this year) in order to possibly manage a transition in a few years down the line.
I'm aware that Networking is key here but the question at hand is what should I be targeting: Macro Funds directly, BB Macro Desks, Commodity Houses or what not so ever. I can actually reach out to a solid alumni network, including the Top UK Uni, a Top Business Uni in Continental Europe and to some extent the Ivy League Uni where I did my exchange at (Is a bit harder, but up to now I was usually able to leverage the exchange status and was able to get in touch with quite a few of the alumnus).
Anyways thanks in advanced for all the inputs.
