Investment Analyst Internship @ RIA
I recently accepted an offer for an investment analyst role at a mid sized RIA (~$6bn). I've primarily been recruiting for IB but unfortunately struck out for 2022 roles (non-target). I'm in the mid west and there aren't a lot of "high finance" opportunities local to my area so I kind of saw this as my best option apart from interning in pwm, tax, fp&a or audit (what most kids at my school end up with)
I actually start this upcoming week but was hoping I could get some advice on what to expect and what the career trajectory would be like if I ultimately wanted to stay in this role, along with any potential exit opportunities for the future.
As of right now, I'm still recruiting for summer towards banking or transactions/deals since I plan on applying to MSF programs in the fall to get a second chance at IB.
