Investment grade vs high yield investments?
I'm currently working at a fixed income shop as an IG credit analyst. I'm thinking of transitioning into HY. The IG investment space is bigger than HY but HY seems to offer more career opportunities due to the transferable skills I get to acquire from analyzing HY names.
Career plan: If I were to stick to the, IG investments are bigger than HY hence more money and money opportunities. But at the same time, I am also interested in exploring transational experiences such as private debt and private equity then maybe HY would be more helpful in that regard?
Any advice and insight is greatly appreciated.
