AM @ a Reputable Bank, Exit Opps?
I seem to read nothing but negative things on here about doing AM at a bank in terms of pay, career progression, etc. Getting into a/Vanguard/ a pure AM house seems extremely difficult, more so than IB especially when the candidate pool is going to grads or people with IB experience let alone the fact that spots are so scarce.
Are there any decent exit opps from an AM arm at a bank? I'm considering pursuing afor lateraling into the capital markets team (FX S&T) of my current bank since they have an internal hiring pool which I'm confident I can get into.
Working in a pure markets driven role is really my top priority, even if it means working as a trading assistant at a smaller fund and working my way up to a seat.
