Why isn't DCM to FI AM common?

Exit ops are often very much talked about and I can see why DCM wouldn't place very well in most exit ops. However, I was wondering why DCM wouldn't be a natural fit for LO AM in Fixed Income teams if it would be in the Investment Grade Space? The usual caveat is that modelling exposure for IG space is rather limited hence exit ops are weak, but that wouldn't necessary apply for bonds in the IG space as investors usually price the securities based on comps? At least that is what I have gathered during my internship in DCM and how syndicate looks at it.

Exactly what above said, you could like place into product/investment specialist type roles but direct research roles would be difficult even in IG land.
