Opportunity at a European MM
Just got an offer to join aas an analyst in continental Europe. I've read a lot on MMs and many describe the culture as cut throat. In this fund, the main strategy is L/S market neutral with a long only fund that is half the AUMs of the market neutral strategy.
My questions are:
- Given the low job stability, how easy is it to switch to an SM afterwards?
- Given that I come from IB, would it be easy to go back if things don't go well?
- Is this a good opportunity overall that I should jump on? I reckon that an opportunity like this won't present itself as I was told I will be trained by the PM for 2 years before getting a book if things go well.
Thanks to all you guys for making this forum a great place to learn and ask questions!
