Quant vs Investment Banker?
If you're good at STEM and you're at HYPSM, is there any reason to choose investment banking (/EB) over quant (JS/ /HRT/etc.)? Which career track do people on Wall Street consider to be more prestigious? Also, which has better exit opps? My understanding is that while quants can exit to FAANG SWE (which pays quite well), ex-investment bankers are relegated to roles like FP&A and corp dev. Could someone please opine on this?
