Am I working in a good direction for FI AM?
At some point I hope to be a manager for a fund. I don't care if it's within aor an independent AM firm, but I do want to pursue the industry via route. Traditional AM would be preferable
My current situation:
Finishing up an MBA at Southern Methodist Univ
Signed on for a commercial banking rotational w/ a regional
Go after my CFA immediately after I graduate
Potential FI AM routes:
1) Ratings agency, possibly for a managed investment group or corporate credit ratings group then to an AM shop
2) If lucky, network my bones dry until i land a gig
1) Is this reasonable?
2) What other routes?
3) Any resources that covers the FI AM lifestyle like career vault?
This looks to be the exact type of work I would be into, and I'm looking for anyway to get into the industry even if it's a small shop.
